Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
Lord Richard Leighton must thwart the Kaiser’s plan to build a railroad from Berlin to the Persian Gulf that would enable Germany to threaten Britain’s rule in India. His mission takes him from Constantinople by caravan to Baghdad as he defies the Young Turk regime, eludes a Prussian assassin, and forges an alliance with restive Arab tribes.
The Grand Mirage is an historical thriller that combines Wilbur Smith’s sense of rugged adventure, Eric Ambler’s taste for intrigue and Alan Furst’s period atmosphere to transport the reader back to an exotic Orient now lost to history.
