St-Lambert author Peter Dash's thriller "ZUrabia"
Peter Dash has travelled and worked around the world but he came back to the town he grew up in, Saint-Lambert. He wrote his first novel there and it's a book that has nothing to do with the leafy green streets of a south shore village.
ZUrabia is a new thriller about international finance, terrorists, espionage and a Harvard University associate professor with a taste for danger. His name is Sands - Adrian Sands -and he was once a spy.
His creator, Peter Dash, has also worked at Harvard at the Center for International Affairs and spent many years abroad as a corporate trainer in Saudi Arabia, South Korea and China, among others.
Peter Dash spoke to Sonali Karnick.
