This is the novel that spawned the blockbuster Paramount motion picture starring Robert Redford, Demi Moore & Woody Harrelson and had everyone asking "Would you do it?"
But Hollywood's rendition of Jack Engelhard's novel didn't tell the real story. Within Engelhard's Indecent Proposal: The Original Novel are the explosive Arab versus Jewish ingredients that are as volatile as today's Middle East headlines -- a part of the story that Hollywood wrote out of the film version!
In Atlantic City, after watching a major player lose and win back millions at the blackjack table, Joshua Kane and his wife Joan are presented with a devil's deal when they meet a rich Arab sultan who offers Joshua one million dollars in exchange for a night with Joan. But that night isn't the end of their entanglement.
Jew and Arab, the men are brothers even when murderously jealous. The Gentile woman is between them, but neither can wholly have her. The outcome will be a rupture of the fragile tolerance that unites the three descent into a bloody triangle.
