About The Book:
For two years in Harvard Medical School, the top spot of the class was always reserved for Lela. She earned her place with exhausting study, patience, and of course, by emphasizing the vast distance between her and the rest of her class. Daina, a Lithuanian émigré, usually dismissed for being an average student, suddenly exhibits extraordinary academic distinction and humiliates Lela in front of all their colleagues.
Then, there is Omar, the Egyptian, el hombre sesudo, the genius who helped Daina ride over her back. Lela seeks his help to regain her top spot, but the Egyptian, who earns a living being a freelance detective, won’t accept money for his services. In his latest case, a client-a British baron-undergoes an incredible encounter with a man who claims time travel. Eager, Lela agrees to help.
What will happen to the student-turned-sidekick?
