Original Title: The Tremor of Forgery
Howard Ingham, an American writer, is sent to Tunisia to gather material for a movie. As his director fails to arrive as scheduled, Ingham decides to stay on and work instead on a novel. Gradually, however, a series of peculiar events lures him inexorably into the deep, ambivalent shadows of this town, into deceit and away from conventional morality.
