Yasser Selim's first book tells of the personal life and behaviour of an average police officer

Al-Hayya (The Serpent) by Yasser Selim, Cairo: Sefsafa Publishing, 2010. pp173

Written before the January 25 Revolution, The Serpent tells the story of a police officer whose position dictates his character and behaviour, rendering him unable to love or ignore suspicions he might have. The unnamed country in which the story is set is identifiably Egypt, though it could be any Arab country going by the police behaviour described in the book.

Yasser Selim is a journalist and this is his first published book.
