Publisher's Summary

Meet Jay.
Small-time dealer.
Accidental jihadist.
The one man who can save us all?

Javid - call him Jay - is a dope dealer living in West London. He goes to mosque on Friday, and he's just bought his pride and joy - a BMW. He lives with his mum, and life seems sweet.

But his world is about to turn upside-down. Because MI5 have been watching him, and they think he's just the man they need for a delicate mission.

One thing's for sure: now he's a long way east of Hounslow, Jay's life will never be the same again.

With the edgy humour of Four Lions and the pulse-racing tension of Nomad, East of Hounslow is the first in a series of thrillers starring Jay Qasim.

A mixed bag

I found the story less suspenseful than it should have been - seemed a little directionless at times. The social context was interesting and well conveyed. The reader was good, but the clear sense of character he conveyed in the first person sections, made the switch to third person in the same voice confusing. The ending was very clunky.

Great book

I really enjoyed this book. Some light hearted moments on what is a very serious subject.
Engaging narrator and good characters.
