I am incredibly delighted to be amongst a host of other bloggers who have the pleasure of revealing the cover of Brothers in Blood by Amer Anwar for you today.
I was lucky enough to read this brilliant book last year when the author very kindly sent me a review copy. You can read my review here. (with its original title Western Fringes). Now though, Amer Anwar has been signed by Dialogue Books (woohoo!!!) and his book has received a make-over. And what a make-over it is!
But before I show you the cover, here is what Brothers in Blood is all about.
Winner of the CWA Debut Dagger
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 Zaq 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?
