About the Author

Henry Toledano

Henry Toledano was born and raised in Egypt. At the age of fourteen, he was sent to a public school in England. He then went to universities in London and New York.

Subsequently, he traveled around the world for two years while doing various jobs. He moved to the Bahamas in the mid-1960s and became associate editor for the local paper in Nassau.

Ten years later, he relocated to San Francisco and, for the last thirty-five years, has been in the retail book business—first, as a partner in a new bookstore, and then, for a longer period, in a used one.

Now, he sells out-of-print books online, is presently single, and lives with two cats. Henry’s book The Turn in the Road will be published by Austin Macauley in England at the end of the year or early next year.

THE BITTER SEED and A SORT OF JUSTICE are now out of print.

Excerpts

“I’m not feeling well,” he apologized. “I think I’ve drunk too much. I should have watched it, for I was already loaded with Dramamine.” A servant was told to bring some Alka-Seltzer and regular black coffee. Jerry slumped in his chair.

“I’m awfully sorry,” he said.

“You’ll feel better immediately,” replied Aziz, watching him swallow the bubbly liquid.

But he didn’t, and a few minutes later, his head fell forward and he was asleep.

He yelled for the guard. A few minutes later, a powerful light went on outside his cell. A large cockroach scurried for a chink in the wall.

“What is it?” barked a voice.

“Rats.”
