ALEXANDER KHAN was raised in a tough, working-class Northern town in the UK. During his childhood he endured racism and cultural ostracization from all sides, for KHAN was neither white nor Asian, but half-caste. KHAN's father had briefly married a local White woman against the wishes of his strictly religious family, and the result of that fraught union - KHAN - was viewed with open shame and horror from all sides.
KHAN is abducted from his "Infidel" mother to be raised in a traditional Islamic environment, where he endured a harrowing existence that culminated in his expulsion from his community and his eventual violent kidnapping in Pakistan, where he laboured in a Madrassa (Islamic School) on the Afghanistan border in preparation for joining the Taliban.
Alexander is also the author of "The Recruit" An Ethan Blake thriller.
