Blaine Williams lives and breathes Casablanca.
He’s trapped in a make-believe world of Bogart and Bergman, smoke-filled cafés, fugitives and hit-men.
And he’s having a mid-life crisis.
Having lost his girl, his job, and his home, he flees to the one place that’s always provided comfort in times of sorrow and despair.
Diving in at the deep end of Morocco’s most misunderstood city, Blaine is sucked down through the many interwoven layers until he hits its bedrock.
And it’s there that he meets Ghita, a fabulously wealthy socialite, who’s got a plan for him – one laced with intrigue and revenge.
Through an adventure paid out in twists and turns, Blaine and Ghita find themselves in a storyline straight out of Casablanca the movie.
Hilarious, poignant, and shocking at times, CASABLANCA BLUES lifts the veil on modern Morocco and conjures a secret realm hidden from travellers and locals alike.
From the acclaimed author of The Caliph’s House.
