'A splendidly dramatic ending... Chowdhury’s writing is compelling and compassionate'The Guardian


ONE MISSING BOY. ONE MAN UNDERCOVER. A WHOLE NATION AT RISK.

Detective Kamil Rahman is working for the Met Police when he gets the call from MI5.
They’ve received intelligence of a terrorist plot, and it’s Kamil they need.

Posing as a disaffected cop and working in his friend Anjoli’s restaurant on Brick Lane, Kamil attempts to infiltrate the cell. What he uncovers leads him halfway across the world to Kashmir, and face to face with an old nemesis.

Meanwhile Anjoli starts to investigate the disappearance of a young boy who’s sending coded messages to his parents. As she attempts to solve his clues, she finds herself in greater danger than she could have imagined.

Time is running out for Kamil and Anjoli: can they save the boy, and save a nation, before it’s too late?

MEDIA REVIEWS

Ever since I discovered Ajay Chowdhury's wonderful Kamil Rahman detective novels, they have offered a feast of great stories, vivid characters, mouth-watering food and fascinating insight into the world of Bengali Muslims in London's Brick Lane. I love his mix of humane feeling, romantic comedy and very modern plotting. THE SPY is his fourth and most ambitious, tackling trans-continental crime,.and pitting his engagingly modest, emotionally confused and very brave hero against the worst villain yet. He is a pleasure to read. - Amanda Craig

The plot races to a splendidly dramatic ending; Chowdhury’s writing is compelling and compassionate, especially on the themes of displacement, and divided loyalties personal and political. - The Guardian

Nobody writes about modern London like Ajay Chowdhury. This book rings with passion for the city's life, its food, its politics - and above all - its darkness. - William Shaw

An intelligent, immersive thriller absolutely brimming with tension. Ajay Chowdhury’s deftness of touch brings both realism and sensitivity to a difficult theme. Superb writing - Marion Todd

The Kamil & Anjoli crime fiction series from Ajay Chowdhury is bursting with innovative thinking... If you’re new to Kamil, what joy for you to have a long & growing series ahead of you - Paul Waters
