About the book

*As seen on The One Show*


ONE MISSING BOY. ONE MAN UNDERCOVER. A WHOLE NATION AT RISK.

Detective Kamil Rahman is working for the Met Police when he gets the call from MI5.
They’ve received intelligence of a terrorist plot, and it’s Kamil they need.

Posing as a disaffected cop and working in his friend Anjoli’s restaurant on Brick Lane, Kamil attempts to infiltrate the cell. What he uncovers leads him halfway across the world to Kashmir, and face to face with an old nemesis.

Meanwhile Anjoli starts to investigate the disappearance of a young boy who’s sending coded messages to his parents. As she attempts to solve his clues, she finds herself in greater danger than she could have imagined.

Time is running out for Kamil and Anjoli: can they save the boy, and save a nation, before it’s too late?

'As funny and touching as it is well-plotted' Amanda Craig

‘An intelligent, immersive thriller absolutely brimming with tension' Marion Todd
