Homegrown Hero Paperback / softback

Part of the Jay Qasim series


Shortlisted for the Crimefest Last Laugh Award and the Crimefest eDunnit Award 2019 `As gripping and funny as his first thriller' Ben Aaronovitch Reluctant spy.

Trained assassin. WHOSE SIDE ARE YOU ON? JAY QASIM is back home in West London and in pursuit of normality.

He's swapped dope-dealing for admin, and spends his free time at the local Muslim Community Centre or cruising around Hounslow in his beloved BMW.

No-one would guess that he was the MI5 spy who foiled the most devastating terrorist attack in recent history. But Jay's part in sabotaging Ghurfat-Al-Mudarris' hit on London didn't pass unnoticed. IMRAN SIDDIQUI was trained to kill in Afghanistan by the terrorist cell who saved his life after his home was destroyed by war.

The time has finally come for him to repay them - throwing him headlong into the path of Jay Qasim. Now, they must each decide whose side they're really on.
