About the book:

A true story of adventure, international intrigue, and danger! Frustrated with a salaried employees life and an insular upbringing, Abe struck out on his own to become a successful entrepreneur with a will to risk. He eventually sought his fortune in Middle East, where he encountered a very different mentality and business culture; and where events would change his political attitudes. Just as the money began rolling in, he and his family became caught up in the danger and tragedy of the Lebanese Civil War. Despite being robbed, shot at, and kidnapped, he remained in Lebanon even after westerners had fled as a matter of self-preservation. Although financial ruin finally impelled him to leave, he returned a year later and was hailed as The First American Back. In his travels throughout the Middle East he met with representatives of princes, kings, and the Shah of Iran. But could he resist the temptation of undertaking illegal activities for high stakes?
