    Description

    Right before the President of the USA is about to visit Pakistan, an American journalist is kidnapped. Watch as pressure builds on the government to find the journalist and they turn to a man they’d thrown into jail for crimes he didn’t commit in Omar Shahid Hamid’s debut thriller novel: “The Prisoner.”

    Summary of the Book

    Zamzama is a posh locality in Karachi, Pakistan. Certainly not a place anyone would have expected American journalist Jon Friedland to go missing. But when he does, the government goes into panic. The American President is due to visit in a few weeks and the event could rock the already fragile relations between the countries. When they find themselves at their wit’s end, they make a bargain with Akbar Khan, a Deputy Superintendent of Police who is currently serving a sentence for crimes he didn’t commit. Between Khan "The Prisoner" and his friend and former colleague, Constantine D’Souza "The Jailer," the story tells us about their lives in the Pakistan Police Force. A story of the Pakistan underworld, graced by jihadists, dirty police officers and scheming secret agents, The Prisoner takes the reader on a journey in Terror and Crime.

    Engrossing

    An engrossing tale of complex machinations that have afflicted evolution of Pakistan as a country. Though the book revolves around a prisoner, it highlights the seething corruption that pervades in social life in Pakistan, some of it reminiscent of conduct of those in power in India. The story is fast paced and engrossing.
