Praise for A Death in Sarajevo

Praise for The Language of Secrets:

“Compelling...With its thought-provoking, intelligent plot, The Language of Secrets even surpasses Khan's superb debut, The Unquiet Dead...Khan delivers an action-packed police procedural complemented by strong characters with believable motives.”—Associated Press

“As much an examination of the complicated social, political and religious aspects of the war against terrorism as it is a crime procedural. It also offers readers an introduction to Arabic poetry and fascinating details about Khattack’s and Getty’s personal lives.”—The Washington Post

“A novel of character and mores, and an exceptionally fine one…A heartfelt novel for lovers of crime fiction and anyone interested in the complexities of living as a Muslim in the West today.”—Library Journal (starred review)

Praise for The Unquiet Dead:

“Impressive…Khan’s talents are evident. This first in what may become a series is a many-faceted gem. It’s a sound police procedural, a somber study of loss and redemption and, most of all, a grim effort to make sure that crimes against humanity are not forgotten.”—The Washington Post

“Khan is a refreshing original, and The Unquiet Dead blazes what one hopes will be a new path guided by the author's keen understanding of the intersection of faith and core Muslim values, complex human nature and evil done by seemingly ordinary people. It is these qualities that make this a debut to remember and one that even those who eschew the genre will devour in one breathtaking sitting.”—The LA Times

“Khan illustrates her powerful storytelling through her well-sculpted characters…An intelligent plot and graceful writing make The Unquiet Dead an outstanding debut that is not easily forgotten.”—The New York Times

“What a debut!...Khan knows her subject, knows her hometown, and knows how to keep the suspense building. This is a writer to watch.”—The Globe and Mail
