Present day Kashmir.
Yakub is a seasoned militant who will do anything to free Kashmir from India. And he really means anything.
His handler, Major Khaleel, is a rogue officer in Pakistan’s intelligence service who wants vengeance for the killing of his mentor, bin Laden, which drives him to devise a terrorist attack codenamed Mission M - the mother of all paybacks.
Hassan, Yakub’s nephew and the orphan of a militant, is entrusted with the responsibility of fulfilling Mission M to avenge his father.
Shehed, Hassan’s lover, is a strong-willed woman who tries to stop him. But can she?
And Rafi is a habitual crook who is always in the wrong place at the wrong time.
A tense and fascinating novel of conflict, both political and personal, and the extraordinary lengths people will go to protect those they love.
