Amid a global crisis, one woman searches for justice…
The Syrian refugee crisis just became personal for Inspector Esa Khattak and Sergeant Rachel Getty.
NGO worker Audrey Clare, sister of Khattak’s childhood friend, is missing. In her wake, a French Interpol Agent and a young Syrian man are found dead at the Greek refugee camp where she worked. Khattak and Getty travel to Greece to trace Audrey’s last movements in a desperate attempt to find her. In doing so, they learn that her work in Greece had strayed well beyond the remit of her NGO…
Had Audrey been on the edge of exposing a dangerous secret at the heart of the refugee crisis – one that ultimately put a target on her own back?
No Place of Refuge is a highly topical, moving mystery in which Khan sensitively exposes the very worst and best of humanity. Fans of the series will love this latest instalment.
'Khan is super-talented at creating smart and thoughtful detective procedurals that also incorporate important current politics and social issues' - Jamie Canaves, Bookriot
'Khan’s doctorate and research in international human relations law give credence to her portrayal of a timely situation. The search for Audrey also is a search for meaning and justice in a world of hatred, betrayal, and despair where the characters are nearly as complex as the global relations. This is a series well worth investigating' - Library Journal
