Description

Girls from immigrant communities have been disappearing for months in the Colorado town of Blackwater Falls, but the local sheriff is slow to act and the fates of the missing girls are largely disregarded. At last, the calls for justice become too loud to ignore when the body of a star student and refugee—the Syrian teenager Razan Elkader—is deliberately positioned in a mosque. Detective Inaya Rahman and Lieutenant Waqas Seif of the Denver Police are recruited to solve Razan's murder, and they quickly uncover a link to other missing and murdered girls. But as Inaya gets closer to the truth, Seif finds ways to obstruct the investigation. Inaya may be drawn to him, but she is wary of his motives: he may be covering up the crimes of their boss, whose connections in Blackwater run deep. Inaya turns to her female colleagues, attorney Areesha Adams and Detective Catalina Hernandez, for help in finding the truth. The three have bonded through their experiences as members of vulnerable groups, and now they must work together to expose the conspiracy behind the murders before another girl disappears. A gripping thriller from one of the genre's finest writers, Blackwater Fallsexamines a series of crimes within the context of contemporary American politics with searing insight.

        Starred review from September 5, 2022
        At the start of this stunning series launch from Khan (the Esa Khattak series), the corpse of high school student and Syrian refugee Razan Elkader is found nailed to the door of a mosque in Blackwater Falls, Colo. Lt. Waqas Seif of the Community Response Unit, a small team assigned to cases involving vulnerable and minority groups, selects detective Inaya Rahman for the investigation, her first hands-on case since moving to Blackwater six months earlier. Rahman discovers that two Somali girls who were friends of Razan’s disappeared months before, but were dismissed as runaways by Blackwater’s powerful sheriff, who’s known to mistreat minorities. Though the girls’ bodies haven’t been found, Rahman fears they too may be dead. Activist-attorney Areesha Adams and criminal psychologist Catalina Hernandez offer Rahman both support and assistance as the investigation leads to the aerospace company at which Razan had interned, the meatpacking plant that employs the three girls’ fathers, and an anti-Muslim evangelical church. When Seif unexpectedly starts to oppose Rahman’s efforts, she wonders whether he has an agenda other than solving the crime. Khan brilliantly depicts the complexities of her characters and the tensions of a multicultural American community struggling with bias, fear, and corruption. At once suspenseful, moving, and thought-provoking, this is not to be missed. Agent: Danielle Burby, Nelson Literary.

      • content: Fareeda Pasha's calm, eloquent narration adds a layer of reality to this chilling story. Her tone is soft yet packs a punch that heightens the drama. A young, exemplary Muslim girl is found brutally murdered, and two other Muslim girls are missing. A Muslim woman from the Community Response Unit of the police department, Inaya, must work quickly to uncover the truth in a town in which racism, police corruption, and religious fervor walk hand in hand with corporate greed. Pasha's portrayal of the characters, complete with her beautiful pronunciation of names, gives listeners a front-row seat to the reality of a town such as this.
