One Way Out By A.A. Dhand -Blog Tour
Posted On 30/06/2019
I received One Way Out by A.A. Dhand to review as part of the blog tour. A Harry Virdee crime thriller set in Bradford that I simply couldn’t recommend more! Available from 27th June in Hardback from Bantam Press for £16.99.
One Way Out
A bomb detonates in Bradford City Park. When the alert sounds, DC I Harry Virdee has just enough time to get his son and 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, hide 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.
A.A, Dhand is not an author I had heard of before reviewing this book but as a fan of crime thrillers, I couldn’t wait to give it a go. From the first few pages I was instantly hooked. Dhand delves into the dark side of Bradford, a city divided by racial tensions and where he grew up.
Harry Virdee isn’t your typical cop and has many layers we discover throughout the book, keeping you hooked to learn more. I thoroughly enjoyed One Way Out and will definitely be looking out for more books by A.A Dhand, especially Harry Virdee novels!
Raised in Bradford, A.A. Dhand spent his youth observing the city from the counter of a mall convenience store. After qualifying as a pharmacist, he worked in London and travelled extensively before returning to Bradford to start his own business and begin writing. The history, diversity and darkness of the city have inspired his Harry Virdee novels.
