A Christian boy in Pakistan is accused of blasphemy―a crime punishable by death.

Haunted by a tragic past, a young lawyer, Sikander Ghaznavi, returns to Pakistan and takes on the defence of the boy. Out of his depth, Sikander reaches out to the sharpest human rights lawyer he knows―the woman he has loved for years, but now another man’s wife.

As they deal with their unresolved feelings, the lawyers confront a corrupt system, a town turned against them, and a prophecy that predicts their death.

Will they save the boy? Or will the city of Quetta, its prejudice inflamed by religious extremists, consume them and deliver them to a deadly fate?

The book explores the amorphous role of religion and class in society, and themes of loss, redemption, and love.

'Instantly reminds readers of Harper Lee's unforgettable novel To Kill a Mockingbird.'
—The News on Sunday

'The story has elements of politics, law and romance which makes it a thrilling read.'
—The Times of India

'You have to remind yourself that Osman's novel and the characters he conjures are fictional because they are convincingly real, so much so, that their words stay with you long after you have put down the book.'
— Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Academy Award winning filmmaker
