Do I have an exciting cover reveal for you today. I’m delighted to be able to share with you the cover for the debut novel by Amer Anwar Brothers In Blood. I read and reviewed this book last year on my blog when it was previously titled Western Fringes and it was one of my favourite reads of 2017. Now it is being re-published by Dialogue Books, an imprint of Little Brown which I was really excited to hear about. So when I was asked to take part in the cover reveal I knew that ‘yes’ was going to be the obvious answer straight away. This book is definitely for you if you enjoy action-packed thrillers.
Before I reveal the cover here’s the blurb.
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?
“An engaging hero, a cunning plot, and a fascinating journey into Southall’s underworld. We’ll be hearing a lot more from Amer Anwar.”
– Mick Herron
“A fine debut novel. With his engaging characters and skilful plotting, Anwar brings a fresh and exciting new voice to the genre.”
– Ann Cleeves
