About Maskouf Bazaar
When Oriental scholar Alan Radville and his son Victor buy Westhill House from renowned billionaire, Sir Chester Cophurst, little do they know that they are about to embark upon the adventure of a lifetime. From the universities and auction houses of London, the three men head to the bazaars of the Middle East in search of a lost manuscript. They soon learn the ancient art of negotiation, and the quest changes at every turn. Travelling to Egypt, Turkey and Syria, the team gathers new members: the granddaughter of Sir Chester, Cleona, and a Syrian curator of Hittite archaeology, Siham. Together, Sir Chester’s team learn the benefits of perseverance and the value of dialogue between East and West.
