Djerba Nights

Literary Thriller By:
Djerba Nights

Under-cover agent Monica is on Djerba, in Tunisia, to trace down the mastermind behind the recent 4/11 terror attack, when the dead body of a tourist woman washes up and she's torn into a mesh of black magic, romance, and international intrique that are all connected to the Djerba Nights, the most exclusive nightclub on the holiday island. 

 

Alexis Debary's debut work of fiction is based on the 4/11 terrorist blast on Djerba, in 2002. The author studied Islamic Studies and German Literature at the University of Hamburg and has travelled extensively in Arabic speaking countries. She binds first-hand experiences with action and vibrant imagery while playing with the cultural prejudice that began with 9/11.

The musicians form a row and the rhythm with their huge, drums resounds to the hypnotic beat of the metal clappers that set in to join them. Essential to the success of the event is the exact sequence of movements and colours employed and the old witch doctor gives signals to the male dancers to form a semi-circle, facing the... Show more

She presses down further on the gas pedal, flooring the accelerator and the car bounces over the 80 mph mark. Monica often drives at this velocity so she pumps further, to get the most out of the old vehicle. 80 miles an hour is a decent speed for a road in this condition, she thinks, when, all of a sudden, a terrible explosion makes the car give a leap. Something in the vehicle has burst apart. Did she demand too much from... Show more
