Product description

Worried about homework deadlines? Full of the usual petty bothers? Things could be worse. Aliya’s caught up in the fallout from a terrorist attack. She fled war-torn Afghanistan for a new home in Britain. Safe? Not yet. Her brother has just been accused of a bomb plot. Yet she’s sure he’s innocent. Until a gun turns up in the bathroom. Who found it? Plumber’s son Dan. Why won’t he speak up? He’s worried the gun is linked to his dad… Jihad. News leaks. Celebrity scandals. It’s a murky world out there. We all have secrets. But some are darker than others. Take refuge in knife-edge fiction full of the creeping unease of our times.

This book contains mature content.
