The Kashmir Trap
Con man Max Oâ€™Brien takes a personal investigation into his own hands.
Max Oâ€™Brienâ€™s nightmare has begun again. Eleven years after the tragic disappearance of his brother, an ambassador in Central America, Maxâ€™s nephew, also a diplomat, is assassinated in New Delhi. Max is on the run from police, and this time the professional con man decides to find those responsible for the crime. Determined to track down the truth, he arrives in India just as the country is preparing for war with Pakistan. His inquiry leads him to Kashmir â€” the heart of the conflict â€” and the depths of his own soul.
The first book of a thrilling new series, The Kashmir Trap explores the parallel lives of two brothers who have made very different choices. Violence and the growing tension between India and Pakistan set Max on a course of redemption, revenge, and death.
