Jack Englehard's Indecent Proposal: The Original Novel
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 ingredients that are as volatile as today's headlines. The passions and tensions of the current Middle East conflict are here as the struggle between Biblical brothers continues in this "Isaac vs. Ishmael" tale but this time the prize is the American dream! In Atlantic City, after watching a major player lose and win back millions at the blackjack table, Joshua Kanh 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 threea descent into a bloody triangle. This controversial novel spawned the Hollywood blockbuster movie starring Robert Redford and Demi Moorea movie in which Hollywood tried to hush the Arab/Jewish themes of the story. In his foretelling and gripping tale, Engelhard captivates the reader with his controversial theme of "What would you do for a million dollars?"
