Iram is a city out of legend, mentioned in several texts of antiquity, including the Holy Quran and One Thousand and One Arabian Nights, it's fate and location have remained shrouded in mystery for nearly two thousand years, until now. This book is a blend of history and fiction, tracing three sets of explorers across time and Arabia. Zaghlool is a slave of Iram, a boy forced into servitude at five, whose family and village were destroyed by the city he serves but whom he hates with deep religious fervor. Thomas Edward Lawrence, a young Archaeologist is searching for Iram, in the twighlight days before World War I, to thwart an Ottoman Army Expedition bent on looting the fabled city. Lastly is Leon Parmenter, a foreign surveyor mapping the desert sands in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, looking for truth but possibly finding much more. From the streets of Alexandria through the wastes of the Rub Al' Khali, follow the three story lines to their climatic conclusion as they seek to discover the Lost City of Iram.
