In Shadows the Sizes of Cities, his fast-paced, sexy noir thriller novel 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 newspaper reporter Will Clark is drawn into killing a drug dealer near Tangier. Pursued by other gang members and the police, his bond with his companions broken and his sense of himself shattered, Will plunges deeper into the country and further into danger, traveling to Marrakesh, over the Atlas Mountains and into the remote Sahara Desert. At the same time, he is searching for the elusive blond backpacker Stacey Snow. Her love might make him whole again—or doom them both. Will’s destiny is also driven by memories of his late 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 will transport you with its descriptions, while its story keeps you on the edge of your seat.
