Editorial Reviews

Review

"A beautiful, daring, exciting book.. a true joy." Mohammed Quayyum

"Ambitious, compelling, gripping, horrifying." Gillian Carey

"Freddie Omm is that rare beast: a thriller writer with a full arsenal of literary skills... Stylish, sharp and masterful, Honor is a real thrill to read... a pleasure on every page." James Wood

From the Author

When I first wrote my thriller, Honor, the feedback I got from agents and publishers was that its subject was way too controversial for them to touch - "too explosive" a topic for a novel to handle, especially a book pitched as a "darkly comic thriller."

So I shelved it for a while.

But times change and I think people these days are much more open and receptive, less stiffly "correct" and uptight about the subject.

Anyway, I am very happy that the book has been published by Mad Bear Books. And I am even more delighted with the extremely positive response the book has had, both from critics and customers!

I hope you enjoy it too!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stylish, sharp, compelling, shocking, intelligent and exhilirating, "Honor" is a page-turner about a young man with a dangerous jihadi past... but then he falls in love with a westernized woman, Shirin. It drives him into a lethal confrontation with his friends, his beliefs, his ideals..

The cast includes jihadi sheikhs and agitators, advertising men and marketers on the edges of mayhem, turning a blind eye to terror in the interests of consumerism, a young girl in an honor attack, a wide-eyed young lad being groomed for a suicide bombing, a fiery, racy feminist. Omm's skill at making them all come to vibrant life is masterful. The way you end up almost sympathizing with the key jihadist, Abdul Khattak, is a satirical master-stroke, as well as a deeply sympathetic portrayal.

Set in England, France and Turkey, "Honor" is atmospheric, disturbing, always riveting. The book's fluid point of view is powered through interwoven narrative threads, whose intricacy mimics the interweaving motivations of the characters in their ironic, multi-perspectived counterpoint. The romantic love story between Azeem and Shirin plays out in a context of murderous rivalry and twisted idealism. Azeem has seen the jihadi killing fields and knows the jihadi techniques, but he turns his back on that life for the love of a woman.

Omm is that rare beast - a thriller writer with a full arsenal of literary skills. Some readers may be taken aback by the mix of comedy and tragedy. But this aspect helps make "Honor" such a thrill to read, there is pleasure on every page. It would make a great independent film by a director like Tarantino or the Coen brothers.

I would recommend this book to anyone who loves well-written, pacy, intelligent thrillers. This one does a great job stimulating the mind, as well as giving shots of adrenalin.
