"★★★★ – stirring spy thriller" – Guardian

★★★★ – The Times

Adam, a fisherman’s son from a rural town in Northern Egypt, is overjoyed to win a scholarship to study at the prestigious Al-Azhar University in Cairo.

But when the Head Imam dies, Adam finds himself a pawn in a high-stakes game of chess between the state and the institution over who will be the next leader of Al-Azhar.

From the director of The Nile Hilton Incident, Cairo Conspiracy is another gripping thriller, with Saleh ratcheting up the tension as Adam struggles to know who he can trust.
