One of Us

Publisher: Chicken House

K is a social misfit; rootless, marginalised and without a sense of direction in her life. Little wonder then that when she narrowly escapes serious injury, in what appears to be a terrorist bomb blast, she should feel instant kinship with Oscar, her handsome rescuer.

Oscar persuades K to go undercover as a student at a Brotherhood school in order to collect intelligence about their radicalisation tactics and help prevent further atrocities. But instead of embittered enemies, K finds real, compassionate people who lead her to question what is right, what is wrong and who is to blame.

A tense and unsettling tale of intrigue, discrimination and prejudice with obvious contemporary parallels in religious and political extremism and the challenges facing the moderate majority.
