Review

‘Told with searing honesty, heartfelt emotion and bucket loads of wit. [Alex] has risked death threats to tell this tale. It was worth the risk.’
The Sun

‘This book will challenge how you think and cause you to question your moral values.’
Steve McLaughlin, author of ‘Squaddie’

‘A true story of courage and inspiration’
Jasvinder Sanghera, author of ‘Shame’ and founder of Karma Nirvana

About the Author

Alexander Khan, who writes under a pseudonym, was born in northern England in 1975. His father was a Pathan tribesman from north-west Pakistan and his mother was a working-class girl from Hyde, near Manchester. In 1978 his father abducted him, took him to his home village of Tajik, and he never saw his mother again. Flung back and forth between England and Pakistan for years, Alex was eventually kidnapped forced to join a camp famed for training members of extreme groups.

Alex is now a happily-married telecoms engineer. He lives with his wife on the south coast of England.
