Brothers in Blood by Amer Anwar

Details

This month we are reading a crime thriller, because a good reading diet needs more than just 'proper' novels ;)

They're not bound by family. But a family could tear them apart.

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?
