NO BODY KILLED HER

by SABYN JAVERI

 

Publication Date: 2017

Extent: 432 pages

 

The Book:

The nation sinks deep into mourning as news of former Prime Minister Rani Shah's assassination arrives. Intelligence agencies, opposition leaders, the army top brass, her closest relatives - all seem to be shifting in their chairs even as special investigative teams gear up to file a report. Conspiracy theories abound for there were many who stood to gain if she pulled out of the imminent elections. The needle of suspicion points most immediately to Madam Shah's close confidante Nazneen Khan, who was seen sitting right beside her in the convoy and, oddly, escaped the bomb blast unscathed. Sabyn Javeri's tale of intense friendship between two ambitious women unfolds in a country steeped in fanaticism and patriarchy. Set against a backdrop of intrigue and political machinations, this is a novel about love, loyalty, obsession and deception. Nobody Killed Her is dark noir meets pacy courtroom drama. An electrifying debut you will rave about to everyone you meet.

 

The Author:

Sabyn Javeri was born in Pakistan and now lives between London and Karachi where she teaches creative writing at university level. A graduate of the University of Oxford, she has a PhD from the University of Leicester.
