Product description

Product Description

Drive-by shootings, drug overdoses, and multi-car accidents - as a paramedic, he thought he had seen it all, until he answered a small job advertisement that changed his life forever.
Welcome to the mysterious world of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, one of the most fundamentalist Islamic countries on the globe. Working as a paramedic at the only level one trauma center in the Middle East, he found his skills and knowledge tested to the limit on a daily basis.
Later recruited to the medical team of Crown Prince Abdullah Ibin Abdul Aziz Al Saud, the now reigning King of Saudi Arabia, he was drawn into a world of palaces and princes, limousines an Learjets. His adventure had only begun.
This is a riveting, factual account of an American paramedic's extraordinary experience inside a country seldom seen by the outside world.

"Tom literally grabs you by the throat in the opening chapter. A fascinating autobiographical tale." Norm Rooker, EMS Responder

"This is one of the best books of its kind. An insight into Saudi life that most westerners would over look." Sandy A. Mitchell, Author (Saudi Babylon)

"So fascinating, that I got up at 3.00am to finish it. It is raw, interesting and the emotions it stirs are intense. Made me both laugh and cry." Theodocia McLean, Ggost Writer Reviews

About the Author

Patrick Notestine was born in California. He drifted from job to job after leaving high school, working as a gas station attendant and farm laborer amongst other things. At the age of 23, he took a long hard look at the direction his life was going. At the back of his mind was an interest in science and medicine. Becoming an Emergency Medical Technician seemed a good option, so he enrolled on a course at his local college. Graduating in March 1983, he started working on an ambulance. He attended UCLA School for Pre-hospital Care and graduated as a paramedic in 1986. He found work on primary response ambulances and eventually moved on to helicopter and air medical evacuation. In 1993, the author answered an advertisement to work at a hospital in Saudi Arabia. Working on the private medical staff of King Abdullah, he enjoyed unprecedented access to the "House of Saud." The Middle East is never far from the author's heart, he has worked in Oman, Qatar and Iraq after completing his service in Saudi Arabia. He is currently working on his second book
