WINNER OF THE CWA DEBUT DAGGER AWARD
Southall, West London. Ex-con Zaq Khan is lucky to land a dead-end job at a builders' yard. All he wants to do is keep his head down and put his past behind him.
But when he's called on to search for his boss's runaway daughter it's soon apparent things aren't quite what they seem. Not simply a case of family arguments and arranged marriages, he finds himself caught up in a deadly web of deception, murder and revenge.
With time running out and pressure mounting, can he find the missing girl before it's too late? And if he does, can he keep her - and himself - alive long enough to deal with the people who want them both dead?
