Killing Honour




A powerful, hard-hitting teen novel on the controversial topic of honour killing by multi-award-winning author Bali Rai. The Lovely Bones meets East is East.

‘Honour,’ I repeated, wondering how such a small word could have caused so much trouble.

When Sat's sister, Jas, is married off into the Atwal family she changes, she's quiet and distant. But Sat's too busy with his own life; his girlfriend, his friends, football . . . Then Jas disappears.

According to her new husband, she's run off with another man. Her family disown her; don't seem to care if she's ever found. But Sat doesn't believe it. Something has happened to his sister and he's determined to figure out what. But his investigations take him into dark and dangerous territory . . .

A powerful, hard-hitting teen novel on the controversial topic of honour killing, by multi-award-winning author Bali Rai.
