About the Author

Born in Karachi, Pakistan in 1975 Khurrum moved to England when he was one. He is a west London boy and now lives in Berkshire with his wife and two sons.

Khurrum is currently working as a Senior IT Officer but his real love is writing. He has a screenplay which has been optioned by a Danish TV producer but is now concentrating on novels. East of Hounslow is his first novel; he is currently working on Homegrown Hero, the second in the Jay Qasim series.

Reviews

'Educated me about some of the most urgent issues of our time while making me repeatedly snort with laughter'. Telegraph

'Combining humour and tragedy is one of the hardest literary challenges, but Khurrum Rahman succeeds.' TLS

'Told with striking panache. Announces the arrival of a fine, fresh new thriller writer' Daily Mail

'A very funny but tense thriller...Think Four Lions meets Phone Shop' Red

'As much a coming-of-age story as a full-on action thriller, East of Hounslow is thought-provoking and entirely gripping.' Guardian

'Sweary, funny and, above all, an absolutely cracking thriller that you'll tear through, this is the anti-James Bond that the 21st century needs' Emerald Street

'East of Hounslow, in which a young Muslim finds himself forced to become an MI5 plant in a group of jihadists, is as British as Nelson's Colum. A superb and exciting debut novel' Telegraph

'Clipped dialogues, staccato sentences and the hilariously brilliant prose set the pace of this excellent unputdownable crime thriller. The climax will leave you breathless.' New Indian Express

'A brilliant thriller. You'd be mad not to buy this.'
Ben Aaronovitch, author of Rivers of London

'Excellent book. Phenomenal writing.' BA Paris, author of Behind Closed Doors

'I loved it. More please' Mel McGrath, author of Give Me the Child
