"terrific dialogue and much humour"

It’s no accident that Amer Anwar has so vividly and passionately described the goings-on, happy and desperate, in Southall, west London. He has lived there all his life, within its large Asian population. Zaq Khan, the endearing Sikh hero of Brothers in Blood, is utterly convincing too. He has had a rough time, with a spell in prison. He gets a job after his release; his boss orders him to find his runaway daughter. He cannot refuse, even though his efforts bring him into dangerous conflict with the local baddies. Terrific dialogue and much humour.

"Tense and pacey, with fast and furious fight scenes"

Tense and pacey, with fast and furious fight scenes, plenty of local colour and wonderful camaraderie between the likable and resourceful Zaq and his best friend and sidekick Jags, this is a welcome addition to the growing ranks of British Asian noir.
