Details

An international literary sensation, this chilling thriller "exposes. . . a world so dark that readers will come away terrified" ("Wall Street Journal," India). An American journalist has been kidnapped in Karachi, Pakistan, days before the American president is due to visit. Those responsible have promised to execute him on video on Christmas Day. With no other leads, Constantine D'Souza, a Christian police officer, must get his former colleague Akbar Khan, a rogue cop imprisoned for a crime he didn't commit, to help track down the journalist. But to do so, he has to navigate the streets of Karachi, where police corruption is a way of life and political motives are never what they seem. Caught between the United Front--the militant ruling party--and the Pakistani Intelligence Agencies, D'Souza is in a race against time to save a man's life and the honor of the nation. Modeled on true events, "The Prisoner" is a fast-paced thriller that brings the byzantine politics and the moral ambiguities of justice in Pakistan to life. With a gritty authenticity based on personal experience, Omar Hamid reveals a society where corruption and extremism are commonplace, and the line between the good guys and the bad guys is never as clear as we would like.
