|Title:||The Cruel Fire|
|Publisher:||Doubleday & Company, Inc.|
Faris Deeb, a prosperous, grasping, domineering, husband and father, is a Lebanese of Barkita. His wife betrays him, his daughter defies him, his two sons are in conflict with him and, when he is mocked by a belly dancer in Tripoli, his lust leads him to rape and murder an American film star. His efforts to conceal, his family's step by step realization of his guilt and his final retaliation build to an effective climax. Definitely a change of pace.--KIRKUS REVIEW 20th April 1962.
