The Jasmine Sari

The Jasmine Sari is a novel set in the world of terrorism. As it is written by Phillip Tucker, a former counter-terrorism officer turned novelist, it contains a good degree of realism based on his years of on the job experience.

He has based his novel on the maxim: "One man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter."

London-based counter-terrorism expert Alex Cadman is sent to Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh where it is his job to assist the local police force by sharing his expertise with them.

Unfortunately it falls to him to work with an academic terrorism expert by the  name of Sam Kanoski, who is arrogantly sure of his own abilities, but what is the reality of the man? Is he actually any good?

For a variety of reasons Cadman finds Dhaka to be a city beset by tensions and dangers, so he seeks out the relative safety of the city's Foreigner's Club.

Within the club he meets Jasmina, a mysterious policewoman in the city force who he finds to be utterly charming and beguiling, yet, with her forthright political views, a bit of an enigma.

Despite believing that his days as an active anti-terrorism police officer are long in his past, he suddenly finds himself plunged inot the midst of a live anti terrorism investigation in Dhaka.

The investigation is a race against time. But who, exactly, are the terrorists? What are their motives? What are they going to target?

Can Cadman assist the local police to avert yet another terrorist outrage?

But who can he trust?

An exciting novel, with many twists and turns, it's published by Matador at £8.99 and is available to purchase at https://goo.gl/wdCFDG.
