How the Story Begins: Felicity wakes up in a cheap hotel room only to find that she has married a quick tempered chap name Zamir. He claims to be Irish and is given to announcements like, “It’s a flaw in my character but all of the women in his family are dead.” He might be a terrorist. Character descriptions (4 m, 3 f)
