About this title


An Afghan jihadi. A Bangladeshi aid worker. A British security consultant. How their lives are about to affect each other. * ‘In a few seconds they will pull the door open and we will both be dead.’ These are the panic-stricken thoughts of Amala, the Bangladeshi aid worker. Hidden inside a linen-closet with another woman she hears the voices of two Taliban fighters outside. The guesthouse in which she lives came under terrorist attack a short while earlier. One of the men sniggers to the other that there seem to be ‘something bigger than rats inside’. As the seconds tick away, James Stewart, the British consultant, is racing against time to save the woman he loves. Standing outside the closet where the two women are hiding is Mohsin Khan, our sentimental terrorist. Mohsin, who worked for a charity and was peace-loving not long ago, is now fighting with the Taliban. What has turned him into a ruthless jihadi? This short novel will take you inside his mind and his world. A warzone veteran, Rajesh Talwar who has worked in numerous hot spots around the world takes a close and intimate look at love, loss and longing in the time of war.
