ABOUT THE BOOK
THE HARD-EDGED DEBUT THRILLER SET IN THE HEART OF WEST LONDON'S ASIAN COMMUNITY
A SIKH GIRL ON THE RUN. A MUSLIM EX-CON WHO HAS TO FIND HER. A WHOLE HEAP OF TROUBLE.
Southall, West London.
Recently released from prison, 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 has to search for his boss's runaway daughter it quickly becomes apparent he's not simply dealing with family arguments and arranged marriages as 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?
WESTERN FRINGES by Amer Anwar is the winner of the CWA Debut Dagger award and after finishing this rollercoaster ride of a novel, I completely understand why. Fast-paced, dangerous, and with plenty of substance, WESTERN FRINGES is a fabulous read.
When Zaq Khan is released from prison he is thrown unceremoniously back into his old life and community of Southall, also known as Little India. But in an area where everyone knows everything about everybody, Zaq is struggling to find employment even though he is an intelligent man with the education to back it up. When Zaq finally gets a job working for Mr. Brars, he is given the task of finding Mr. Brar's daughter Rita, who is missing, but as Zaq delves deeper into his search, secrets and lies start to come to light which will lead him into very dangerous territory.
Very well-written with an energetic atmosphere, there are so many twists and unpredictable turns in WESTERN FRINGES that it will surprise readers at numerous points. The characters are well-detailed and there is plenty of tough and gritty scenes throughout to satisfy the most particular readers of this genre.
WESTERN FRINGES by Amer Anwar is a compelling thriller that really captured my imagination and held it to the very end, and I highly recommend it.
