Can a patient's silence kill the doctor? A respected physician in Cordoba, Spain, receives a mysterious phone call-a request to attend to the ailing daughter of a wealthy but secretive family in Madrid. What seems to be a routine house call quickly turns into a disturbing labyrinth of intrigue and mystery, and a fight for the girl's life. The outcome of that battle will impact the doctor-and the journalist interviewing him-in ways neither imagined. Set against the unstable political climate of General Franco's Spain in the 1940's and based on a bizarre real-life incident that remains unsolved to this day, "Verse in Arabic" twists medical ethics and psychosocial tyranny into a cord that pulls at your heart from both ends. "Verse in Arabic" has been named a finalist in the 2013 Press 53 Open Awards.
