Solomon Grimaud is a millionaire French-Jewish shipping magnate living in opulence in early 20th century Alexandria. Even with a beautiful wife and son, who he lavishes every material thing, he has sacrificed the tender side to progress. Only when faced with personal and financial disaster does he see what it has cost him. Croxford has captured all the fears and tensions of the strife-ridden Middle East and the growing panic of a privileged community as its way of life dissolves in the rising tide of anticolonialism.
