The much-anticipated new Harry Virdee thriller from rising star A.A Dhand…. Bradford is Dhand’s city – he grew up there, studied there. He knows these streets as well as anyone. Tensely paced and characteristically meticulously plotted, One Way Out takes you into the dark heart of a city under siege.. A bomb detonates in Bradford’s City Park. When the alert sounds, DC I Harry Virdee has just enough time to get his son and his mother to safety before the bomb blows. But this is merely a stunt. The worst is yet to come. A new and aggressive nationalist group, the Patriots, have hidden a second device under one of the city’s one hundred and five mosques. In exchange for the safe release of those at Friday prayers, the Patriots want custody of the leaders of radical Islamist group Almukhtareen – the chosen ones. The government does not negotiate with terrorists. Even when thousands of lives are at risk. There is only one way out. But Harry’s wife is in one of those mosques. Left with no choice, Harry must find the Almukhtareen, to offer the Patriots his own deal. MY REVIEW Thanks to Anne Cater from Random Things Tours…
Read Decemeber 2018.
The first Book by A.A Dhand. my first word is Outstanding. I Loved every page.
Introducing D.I Harry VIrdee, a tough uncompromising cop who has trouble sticking to law when it comes to bringing down the bad guys, Currently under suspension, he is asked by his boss to go undercover when local MP and Businessman’s Shakeel Ahmed’s body is found.
I have never been to Bradford and have never read anything quite like this. It has a very different feel from a standard crime procedural, I think maybe for me because it’s introducing a culture and ways of life I knew nothing about.
At times its very dark, a hard hitting violent tale of Race, politics. Drugs. Families, Murder, Religion , you name it , it’s here and the book absolutely whistles by, easy to read, tense, action at every turn, possibly my book of the year for 2018,
Fantastic, I can’t wait to get started on Girl Zero and have also now bought City of Sinners, Book 3 in the series
I highly recommend A.A. Dhand , a fresh new voice in crime fiction, to everyone and in particular fans of David Mark and anyone who wants something a little different from the usual
