American businessman Alan Clay is in Saudi Arabia. He's here selling IT to King Abdullah to help conjure a glittering city from the desert sands. But the king has yet to arrive. And Alan is slowly coming apart - he's up to his neck in debt, he's trying to keep hold of his family and he knows that this will be his very last roll of the dice. As the days stretch into weeks, Alan gets drawn into a world of mirages - where hopes and dreams shimmer and vanish under a blistering desert sun . . .
