What you need to know before your trail

A Sikh girl on the run. A Muslim ex-con who has to find her. A whole heap of trouble.

Southall, West London. After being 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 the past behind him.

But when Zaq is forced to search for his boss’s runaway daughter, he quickly 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?

Travel Guide

Southall, London

The area of London known as Little India. Heavily routed in the Asian culture

the novel takes a look at the religious and cultural aspects of life within the communities there.  Zaq has a prison background and working delivering building supplies for Mr Brar. Mr Brah is Sikh and his daughter has ran off for a Muslim and that goes against all their beliefs and traditions.

“Zaq had been away for five years and though some things had changed, the sights, sounds and smells of Southtall were essentially the same. The brightly coloured sari shops and glittering Indian Jewellers were still there in all their spangly glory, even if some of the names had changed.”

And it’s not just the religious aspects, the Sikh/Muslim differences which colour the novel. It’s awash with the  food, language and the sense of community . And there’s plenty of language and sayings sprinkled through the text to further make this feel as authentic as being there yourself.
