A powerful story of lust, greed and murder.  Unflinching, tough, and dramatic, The Search was most certainly intended to be a harsh criticism of Post-Revolution morality, but, on its most elemental level, it is  a lurid and compelling tale.

Baker & Taylor
Saber, the child of a prostitute, leaves Alexandria for Cairo to search for his wealthy father, and becomes involved in an illicit affair with his landlord's wife, Karima, who convinces him to murder her husband and claim his fortune
