A forbidden love draws the Mafia into fighting Radical Islam
An affair between Marlon, a politically correct history teacher, and Jamila Khan, his young student, must be kept a secret. Jamila works covertly toward liberating women oppressed by radical Islamism.
As Marlon awakens to the dark underbelly of orthodox Islam, a turn of events leads to Marlon becoming a fugitive charged with murder. Jamila’s testimony can free him, but her eyewitness account could incur a death fatwa from the Islamic orthodoxy. Marlon won’t let her risk herself.
Hunted by Scotland Yard, and betrayed by England, Marlon must now work with the men he once loathed—his Sicilian uncles. Jamila’s life, and his, depend on it.
“This novel is a rarity these days: plotting, imagery, dialogue, scene-setting, characterisation — all masterfully done; all telling a story worth telling, in a plot-theme needing to be told.
I couldn’t put it down. I challenge you to try. ” – Five Star Verified Purchased
“Kolhatkar s first book ” The Frankenstein Candidate” is a great political thriller . This book is a study in contrast. The author has taken the bull by the horns and furnished 2 strong characters , a young Muslim girl and a white older man,a teacher, and intertwined it intelligently with the world ‘s most pressing questions; what does Islam mean to Muslims, what is the genesis or the mind of Islamic fundamentalism that is so pervasive today, and more importantly for us sheds light on a young Muslim woman’s quest for finding her space in that pervasiveness as also her brave unyielding and often selfless forays into fighting for what she believes to be right. This is not a book that claims to have any quick fix answers. But the love story (that I believe stands for “love of humanity”) between the 2 main characters, as far apart as they are , acts as a strong spine for the story. Ultimately its about changing oneself and finding oneself in search of the truth, for love. ” – Five Star Amazon Review
