A Jay Qasim short story and prequel to EAST OF HOUNSLOW written for Quick Reads 2021

Business has been slow for Hounslow's small time dope-dealer, Jay Qasim. A student house party means quick easy cash but it also means breaking his own rules. But desperate times lead him there - and Jay finds himself in the middle of a crime scene.

Idris Zaidi, a Police Constable and Jay's best friend, is having a quiet night when he gets a call out following a noise complaint at a house party. Fed up with the lack of excitement in his job, he visits the scene and quickly realises that people are in danger after a stabbing.

Someone will stop at nothing to get revenge . . .

Praise for the Jay Qasim series:

'Thrilling and immersive ...violence, love, humour and razor-sharp observation keep the pages turning' Sunday Times Crime Club

'A timely addition to the new breed of socially committed British thrillers.' Guardian

'A brilliant thriller. You'd be mad not to buy this.'
Ben Aaronovitch

'Sweary, funny and, above all, an absolutely cracking thriller that you'll tear through, this is the anti-James Bond that the 21st century needs' Emerald Street

'East of Hounslow, in which a young Muslim finds himself forced to become an MI5 plant in a group of jihadists, is as British as Nelson's Colum...a superb and exciting debut novel' Telegraph
