Editorial Reviews

An epic historical adventure propelled by themes of sin, sexuality, religion, and redemption, A Wind in Cairo immerses listeners in the colorful climes of medieval Egypt, and introduces a protagonist demanding both sympathy and reproach. Guilty of the most contemptible carnal transgressions, Hasan is punished for his crimes when a mage transforms him into a horse - an experience that offers him a much-needed dose of humility. Battle bound and subject to the whims of others, Hasan ironically finds himself jockeying one of his former victims - a twist of fate which leads to a remarkable relationship between the two. In his lilting, elegaic baritone, actor James Patrick betrays a wellspring of emotion as he plunders the depths of Hasan's physical and emotional transformation.

Publisher's Summary

THE PRINCE: Spoiled, reckless, heedless of any wants or needs but his own, sentenced to a terrible fate for his sins against man, woman, and God.

THE STALLION: Equally spoiled, equally reckless, and bound until death to a bitter servitude.

THE TURK'S HEIR: Fiercest of rivals, most devoted of enemies, whose armor hides a secret.

Come into the world of the Arabian Nights, where magic and mystery meet; where justice lays a sinner low, and the magic of the heart turns hate to love.

This one has everything

I have had this in my library of paperback books ,and have read it with pleasure many times.This story of a selfish,spoiled prince who is taught a hard lesson about compassion and humility. Along the way you laugh , cry, revel in the revenge he receives , and experience his slowly dawning wisdom. Magic and adventure in a fast paced story.
