An Honourable Betrayal is a fast-moving political thriller pitched into the turmoil of present-day Yemen.
As a decade-long political impasse divides the country, and Yemen’s humanitarian crisis deepens, there appears to be no way forward. Rising secretly from this chaos however, is a diabolical plan to unify the country. Permanently. This is led by elements of the minority Houthi high command in Sana’a, aided by an American, former trauma specialist Dr Rachel Cauvin. But as their mission unfolds, it collides with a fearless group of Yemeni women who are set on championing their own peaceful vision for Yemen’s unification.
Many undercurrents drive the tense narrative as the plot weaves from Yemen to Saharan Niger by way of Djibouti and France before its devastating climax in one of Yemen’s most famous landmarks – the Dar al Hajarpalace, Sana’a.
