One Way Out - reviews are in!

A bomb detonates in Bradford’s City Park.

When the alert sounds, DCI Harry Virdee has just enough time to get his son and his mother to safety before the bomb blows. But this is merely a stunt.

The worst is yet to come.

A new and aggressive nationalist group, the Patriots, have hidden a second device under one of the city’s mosques. In exchange for the safe release of those at Friday prayers, the Patriots want custody of the leaders of radical Islamist group Almukhtaroon – the chosen ones. 

The government does not negotiate with terrorists. Even when thousands of lives are at risk.

There is only one way out.


But Harry’s wife is in one of those mosques. Left with no choice, Harry must find the Almukhtaroon, to offer the Patriots his own deal. 

Because sometimes the only way to save lives, is to take them. 


"One Way Out is his most provocative novel yet...Dhand never forgets the imperatives of the page-turning thriller..." (Barry Forshaw, Financial Times)

"This couldn't be more topical if A.A.Dhand was handing you the freshly written pages as he watched the news. It's hugely exciting too..." (Jake Kerridge, Sunday Express)

"The action scenes are exciting, the struggle of Harry's parents is moving, the moral questions Harry must answer are important and Dhand's portrait of 21st-century Britain is terrifying" (The Literary Review)

"It's fast and furious, compounded by some sublime plotting, and yet moments of solemn pause for thought. There's a real sense of Dhand pushing himself a little bit further with every book, that is leading to some absolutely superlative writing..." @ravencrime review

"Impeccable writing, well-crafted layers, a suffocating tension, outstanding characters put in impossible situations, served with twists and developments galore. One Way Out absolutely blew my mind..." @Choconwaffles book review
