Key Features Racy, breathlessly paced page-turner Setting for the story is the world of the Karachi Police through the eyes of a Christian police officer Backdrop of the story is the kidnapping of an American journalist from outside a trendy restaurant in Karachi Displays the rampant corruption and duplicitous face of politics Gives insight into the dynamics of the turbulent mix of politics, religion and the role of the intelligence agencies in the War on Terror Author served with the Karachi Police for twelve years and was targeted by terrorist group and organizations during his service About the Book: The Prisoner On an unusually cold December evening in Karachi, American journalist Jon Friedland is kidnapped from one of the citys poshest neighbourhoods. His captors plan to post a video of his execution on Christmas Day. The kidnapping has come at a bad time, embarrassing the Pakistani government in front of their US allies. The clock is ticking. Will the police and Intelligence Agencies recover Friedland alive? With the stakes so high, only one man can possibly crack the case: Akbar Khan, a police officer who has been languishing in Karachis Central Prison for years, punished and betrayed for a crime he did not commit. In desperation, the Agencies ask Constantine DSouza, a Christian police officer who serves as Superintendent of the Prison, to get Khan to cooperate. But there are others who are not as eager to allow Khan back out from his prison cell, most of all the United Front, the fascist political party that controls the city with an iron fist. Caught in the middle is DSouza-pressured by the Agencies to help them tap Khan for information, and by the United Front to ensure that the scheme does not succeed. 25 December approaches and the fate of Friedland hangs in the balance. The story careens through the streets of Karachi for a ground-level tour of the War on Terror, taking the reader into an all too real world of jihadis, corrupt police officers, duplicit.
