The Arabian Caper is a great read! written a narrative of a great con job around interesting, first person insights into a closed, entitled, super-wealthy, and patriarchal culture. He puts you in the first class section of the Concorde jetting off to an afternoon meeting in Geneva, hobnobbing with the Saudi Oil Minister, and, while managing the assets of those wealthy beyond imagination, dancing around “crossing the line” between fair business and embezzlement. Great read all the way to the end. More!

The Arabian Caper is a first-hand look inside the special relationships and careful handling required to broker Wall Street deals with Saudi clients. In an era long before the Khashoggi incident but seemingly not far removed, Mr. Dunev grants the reader an all-access pass to the personal struggles involved in managing these upper-stratosphere clients as well as the inner workings of Saudi royalty and their occasionally questionable choices of confidantes. The Arabian Caper is an excellent read.

The Arabian Caper is a well written, brilliantly paced story of the power that surrounds those who control the global oil markets and the rarified circles of influencers who trade off that power. Mr. Dunev told a great tale of the “truth is what you perceive it to be” if that truth suits your needs……regardless of how smart, rich and powerful you are. Great inaugural literary effort. More please.


Interesting true tale of intrigue and fraud.

I liked the fact that I know the author. It could make a pretty good film and it would be topical because of the involvement of the Saudi royals in this tale.
