Not without my sheikh - Part II

A few weeks ago I wrote about a new book which was published in Switzerland about the affair of a UAE sheikh to a Swiss lady.
The title of the book is: "Die verbotene Frau." (the forbidden wife)

I have read the book and am surprised that she has given away his identity, although she says repeatedly that she wants to keep his identity a secret. Well, all i can say is she failed miserably. Intentionally? Maybe.

I just wanna give you a few hints about the guy, if you like to know more, come over to my blog. I am just repeating here, what she says in the book, I am not adding anything...you will know who it is!!!
- they met in 1979 in England, when he was 17 and she was 22
- means he is born either 1961 or 1962
- he studied nuclear/atomic physics in the USA, nowadays he's mainly into real estate
- he has 6 kids together with his wife and cousin, whom he married in 1990
- His father has two wives. His mother is the younger, second wife.
- Both wives live on the same property, in individual houses.
- The guy in question has at least one sister
- where he lives: To get to his house, starting from Jebel Ali, you have to drive through Dubai, through Sharjah, through Ajman...until you reach the Hajjar mountain range. In his city there is a huge bridge connecting the new and old town.
- etc. etc. etc....the list is endless

Very difficult huh?

so who is it?

what if this is just yet another fiction book? it is easy to be vague and dream up a story of love, lust and arabia and for marketing reasons it would obviously be great to make a minor riddle out of it or talk about how she still calls him and all that. who knows?

as far as i remember "not without my daughter" by betty mahmoody turned out to be fake in the end and that was also decorated with plenty of stories around...

i am not saying this one is fake, but how could anyone or myself tell the truth from a fake on a subject like this...

das ist jetzt so gemein :- (((( Ich wollte auf Dein Posting hin doch noch selber Colombo spielen, hatte nur noch keine Zeit - Mist! Das Buch ist bei Amazon (DE) vergriffen!?

@Anon - what a question? :P To answer it would be against the law (in case you didn't know)

@ myself - Keep on dreaming in denial of reality. At least the "Mr X" in question has great taste :- ) - she is smashing, even at her current age!

She doesn't mention the name in her blog either. Instead, she clearly gives a hint in form of a pdf file where the name is clearly visible in the second paragraph.

But to make your life less miserable: Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qassimi
