In the wake of the first World Trade Center bombing, New York City is the center of an intricate web of betrayals and double-crosses in the shadowy world of Muslim radicals. Sami Amir arrives in Brooklyn via Iran, and into a world of militants, arms suppliers, and spies. He is a counter-intelligence agent from a branch of the Iranian Ministry of Security. The son of an American mother, he has always stood apart from his fellow men. Now, because of his background, he is sent to New York to investigate rumored terrorist plots that are to culminate with further violence around Christmas and New Year's, two weeks away.

""Ornate and ambitious . . . [A] complex, politically sophisticated story.""—The New York Times Book Review

""The Poet Game offers its own taut, moody spin to the spy-genre conventions.... Abdoh delivers a surprising, smart thriller.""—San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

""The Poet Game is a spy-thriller with a twist . . . Unique.""—Christian Science Monitor

""Like a ventriloquist manipulating the stylish thrillers of Graham Greene or John le Carré, Abdoh tells [a] brilliant, dark tale . . . Imaginative.""—Brad Gooch, Harper's Bazaar

""The novel races through a series of atmospheric settings . . . Vividly described . . . An entertaining and heart-quickening debut.""—Publishers Weekly
