Be twice as good as men and four times as good as white men.
  Jia Khan has always lived like this.

 
Successful London lawyer Jia Khan is a long way from the Northern streets she knew as a child, where her father, Akbar Khan, led the Pakistani community and ran the local organised crime syndicate. Often his Jirga rule – the old way – was violent and bloody, but it was always justice of a kind.
 
Now, with her father murdered, Jia must return to take his place. Justice needs to be restored, and Jia is about to discover that justice always comes at a cost.
 
‘A fascinating glimpse into a world rarely portrayed in fiction.’ Guardian, best crime and thrillers
