‘Part family history, part immigrant hustle… A complete tour de force.’ Junot Díaz

1981: Khalid Quraishi feels lucky. Working in the glitzy West End by night and spending time with his beautiful wife and daughter by day, he’s a world away from the life he left behind in Karachi. But Khalid likes to gamble, and he’s just chanced upon an opportunity that could see him win big…

2003: Alia Quraishi doesn’t really remember her dad. After her parents divorced she hardly ever saw him, and then he died in an accident – or at least that’s what she was told. But now, Alia has questions. And with no leads left in the UK, she must travel to Pakistan, and to a family that feel more like strangers, to finally find out the truth about her father.

‘A brilliant, intriguing novel… The characters feel so real that I can hardly believe they’re not.’ Louise Hare

‘Beautiful… An elegant and moving book.’ Sathnam Sanghera
