A Touch of Eastern Promise
22 March 2020 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Charlie Hungerford wants to build an all weather leisure resort. In short a hotel complex and a waterpark with a retractable glass roof.

To finance it he has got an arab investor, Zaki Mansoor. Together with a dodgy arab banker who is already on the island they plan to fleece Charlie Hungerford and his investors.

However Zaki attracts the attention of someone trying to kill him. It seems his own government has little time for him. However Zaki is someone who can look after himself.

Putting aside the notion that an Arab government would opt to kill someone abroad if they can do it more easily in their own country. Even the dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in 2018 after he went to the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

It was only a matter of time before a dodgy arab visited Jersey. At least Zaki turns out to be more cunning and resourceful.
