The God of Chaos by Tom Bradby
Cairo, June 1942. A city blistering under the lash of a relentless summer and panicked by the implacable advance of Hitler's most talented general, Erwin Rommel. It is the worst possible time and place for the body of a senior British officer to be found in a rubbish bin, bathed in blood.
His murder has been made to look like a political assassination by local extremists opposed to British rule, but former New York cop Joe Quinn isnât buying that. He senses more fundamental human emotions at play. For Quinn, itâs like old times, a reminder of his past. One he doesnât want to revisit. Thrown out of the New York Police Department as a liability after the tragic death of his son, he probably shouldnât be a cop any longer, but maybe heâs just what this case needs.
The investigation leads him through the underbelly of an exotic, violent and seedy city to the heart of the Cairoâs high command and the possibility that a highly placed spy is feeding the alliesâ most sensitive secrets to Rommel, waiting out in the desert. Only one woman has seen the killer - an American named Amy White. The trouble is Joe Quinn's already falling for her and if he doesn't stop the spy soon, then not just Amy, but everything else he holds dear is certain to be brutally eliminated â€¦
