Online talk: Saima Mir: The Kahn, with AA Dhand

Festival

Description

The award-winning journalist (BBC, Guardian) Saima Mir talks about her gritty debut thriller The Khan, set among the British Pakistani community in a northern city.


It features an unforgettable female protagonist – a London barrister, who is drawn back into her father’s gangland world, when he’s found murdered. Saima Mir was born in Bradford and worked as young journalist there, an experience that has informed her exciting debut, with its themes of family loyalty, gang warfare and retribution. The Khan has been optioned by BBC Studios.


Saima Mir will be interviewed by AA Dhand, the Bradford-based author of the Harry Virdee crime fiction series, latest title One Way Out.
