Anwer fills a gap that has been yawning for far too long and what sets him apart is his extraordinary storytelling and sheer authenticity. It was fascinating, occasionally funny, but also terrifying. A damn good read that I found impossible to put down. * CJ Carver * "What a class book Brothers in Blood is! Fast paced, daring and totally gripping * Dreda Say Mitchell * This is such a thrillingly authentic slice of London life. No one's written these characters before - and done it so well. * William Shaw * The finest story telling finds the epic in the intimate and the intimate in the epic. Brothers in Blood introduces new voices and new communities into the world of crime fiction. Those readers who don't own a coffee table or a bedside cabinet need not worry; you won't be putting this book down * Hardeep Singh Kohli, broadcaster, columnist and writer * Raw! Authentic! The crime thriller that I've been waiting for * Khurrum Rahman, author of East of Hounslow * What a wild ride! Have never read anything so action-packed and tense! A fantastic read * Ausma Zehanat Khan, author of The Unquiet Dead * A fine debut novel. With his engaging characters and skilful plotting, Anwar brings a fresh and exciting new voice to the genre * Ann Cleeves * An engaging hero, a cunning plot, and a fascinating journey into Southall's underworld. We'll be hearing a lot more from Amer Anwar * Mick Herron * '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.' * The Times Crime Books of the Year * Fast paced, daring and totally gripping. Very real characters, tough but vulnerable at the same time.' * Dreda Say Mitchell * An authentic slice of Brit Asian noir... Gripping * Vaseem Khan * A damn good read that I found impossible to put down. When can I read the next one? * CJ Carver * The finest story telling finds the epic in the intimate and the intimate in the epic. Brothers in Blood introduces new voices and new communities into the world of crime fiction...you won't be putting this book down * Hardeep Singh Kohli * Gritty, startlingly original and great fun * Robert Bryndza * A sometimes violent, always excellent West London Asian crimer * Daily Sport * Enjoyable. Fast-paced. Recommended * Observer * Have never read anything so action-packed and tense! A fantastic read! * Ausma Zehanat Khan * Gritty, compelling and authentic, with an engaging hero and a hugely enjoyable plot * Daily Express * A fresh and exciting new voice to the genre * Ann Cleeves * Tense and pacey . . . fast and furious' * Guardian * [A] brilliant debut * Sunday Times Crime Club *
