In 1960s Beirut, two worlds collide

Beirut, 1965. Eccentric American billionaire Zane Smith is quite entranced by tattooed dancer known only as the Dark Lily. In fact, he is so entranced that he takes her back to his hotel room for a private performance. It's only when he wakes up in the morning with one hell of a headache and the Dark Lily gone that Smith realizes he may have bitten off more than he can chew.
However, none of the valuables in Smith's hotel room is missing - nothing save an invitation to a party at the American embassy in Beirut. But why would an exotic dancer attempt to snatch an invitation to an embassy party for herself? And who is the mysterious Dark Lily?

This is a novelette of 10500 words or approximately 32 print pages.

Richard Blakemore (1900 – 1994) was a prolific writer of pulp fiction. Nowadays, he is best remembered for creating the Silencer, a masked vigilante in the vein of the Shadow or the Spider, during the hero pulp boom of the 1930s. But Richard Blakemore also wrote in many other genres, including an early sword and sorcery series about the adventures of a sellsword named Thurvok and his companions.
Richard Blakemore's private life was almost as exciting as his fiction. He was a veteran of World War I and II as well as a skilled sportsman and adventurer who travelled the world during the 1920s. He may also have been the person behind the mask of the real life Silencer who prowled New York City between 1933 and 1942, fighting crime, protecting the innocent and punishing the guilty, though nothing has ever been proven.
Richard Blakemore was married for more than fifty years to Constance Allen Blakemore and the couple had four children.
