In Shadows the Sizes of Cities, his fast-paced, sexy noir thriller set in Morocco in 1994, author and journalist Gregory W. Beaubien tells a gripping tale of young travelers pulled by love, money and revenge toward their fates in the deserts of North Africa.
While traveling with friends, the young American reporter Will Clark is drawn into killing a drug dealer. Pursued by other gang members and the police, his bond with his companions broken and his sense of himself shattered, Will plunges further into danger even as he searches for the elusive blonde Stacey Snow. Her love might make him whole again—or doom them both. Will’s destiny is also driven by memories of his father, a man he idolized but whose true story has yet to be revealed.
A literary thriller that combines action and suspense with exotic locations, Shadows the Sizes of Cities is the debut novel of a new talent in fiction. Beaubien based the book in part on his travel writing for the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Sun-Times, the Los Angeles Times, and other newspapers and magazines.
More literary than the typical thriller, and more thrilling than most general fiction, Shadows the Sizes of Cities, like its wayward characters, travels its own realm between darkness and light.
