Currently Reading - Arms for Adonis

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

A complicated classification as this is a book that I've had since Wakefield started publishing their classics of Australian crime fiction.  It's also a book that I read years ago, so this was a reread.  Which I've now finished so it's not even technically "Currently Reading"...

From the Blurb:

'The blood of Adonis, thought Sarah, remembering the church that was built like a pagan temple, Coquelicot rouge - the symbol of a dying man whose blood stained the hillside in spring.'

The blood of Adonis, thought Sarah, remembering the church that was built like a pagan temple. Coquelicot rouge - the symbol of a dying man whose blood stained the hillside in the spring.

Sarah Lane, abandoning her French lover for the brilliant Lebanese sunshine, believes that the day will belong to her alone. But when a street bomb hurls her into the arms of a dangerously handsome Syrian colonel, she finds herself trapped once again.

Is this a kidnapping? A seduction? Or merely the chaos of the Middle-East?
