East of Hounslow (Jay Qasim #1)
The one man who can save us all?
Shortlisted for the 2021 Edgar Awards
Javid - call him Jay - is a dope dealer living in West London. He goes to mosque on Friday, and he's just bought his pride and joy - a BMW. He lives with his mum, and life seems sweet.
But his world is about to turn upside-down. Because MI5 have been watching him, and they think he's just the man they need for a delicate mission.
One thing's for sure: now he's a long way East of Hounslow, Jay's life will never be the same again.
With the edgy humour of Slough House and the pulse-racing tension of The Bodyguard, East of Hounslow is the first in a series of thrillers starring Jay Qasim.
