Nicosia

Mosque in Nicosia by L. A. Davenport
Last year, I crossed to the Turkish side of Nicosia and wandered the quiet, still streets.

I stood in a square next to a mosque, and felt the slow shift from one culture to another and the sharp contrast from the noisy, clattering streets of the other side.

Above my head, what sounded like a giant megaphone crackled into life and, for the first time, I heard a call to prayer up close.

This is what I heard.


Escape, the debut thriller, is out now.

No Way Home and Dear Lucifer and Other Stories are also out now.
