The book is packed with religious themes though it becomes really interesting when the christian book is found in Amna's car and strikes her. Also when the Muslims go on a hunt for koenig is a plot that seems interesting to read.

The book highlights the height of religious intolerance in the society. Jane's father is a Muslim and does not want anything to do with other religions. He beat up her daughter upon finding her with a Christian book that her friend had forgotten at their place.

Educative, informing and more importantly never knew 'Christian Crime Thriller' was
an actual genre.

The review is quite exhaustive. I share the concern that the book's theme is rather inciting. Islam has given the world a strange fear factor and books like this that discuss it seem to increase the already existent tension.

"Exploring the themes of the outcomes of faith, bravery, love, true and chaste friendships, it provides adequate lessons to keep someone on the right path all his life. Interestingly, it teaches how to see things from a moral perspective without being judgmental."
I will definitely be reading this book, the kind of book to bring peace in different religions & to strengthen one's faith. Thank you for the detailed review.

It's disheartening that religious intolerance still exist in the society today. Amna is punished by her father for reading a Christian script.

I haven't read the book, but intend to now. As a thriller enthusiast, and religion and politics student, I love the real life conversations that can be had around these stories and accounts.
Thank you!

The story seems to be captivating and gives a story of inspiring those who have lost their faith.
