Arya Sintesi is the beautiful and sophisticated daughter of a Turkish politician, and an Agent of Turkey’s secret service. The story chronicles their parallel adventures, after a torrid encounter in Istanbul they are separated. John has an active career in the Army fighting terrorists in Lybia, Jihadists in France, and the Taliban in Afghanistan. Arya, after marrying Homer, her Turkish diplomat fiancé, moved to Madrid, and was tasked with missions in England, Germany, and Paris. Six years after their initial meeting in Ankara, John and Arya unexpectedly ran into each other at which occasion John found out that they had a daughter. John was promoted as Attaché to Tel Aviv, and took part in Israeli missions in Southern Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip. He was deployed undercover to Jordan. After a few years, Arya’s husband passed away and she returned to Turkey. Back home she was arrested during a covert operation in northwest Syria, was tortured and jailed in Tadmore prison, Palmyra.
