From the critically acclaimed author Ausma Zehanat Khan, A Deadly Divide is the devastatingly powerful new thriller featuring beloved series detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty. In the aftermath of a mass shooting at a mosque in Quebec, the local police apprehend Amadou Duchon—a young Muslim man at the scene helping the wounded—but release Etienne Roy, the local priest who was found with a weapon in his hands. The shooting looks like a hate crime, but detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty sense there is more to the story. Sent to liaise with a community in the grip of fear, they find themselves in fraught new territory, fueled by the panic and suspicion exploited by a right-wing radio host. As Rachel and Esa grapple to stop tensions shutting the case down entirely, all the time, someone is pointing Esa in another direction, a shadowy presence who anticipates his every move. A Deadly Divide is a piercingly observed, gripping thriller that reveals the fractures that try to tear us all apart: from the once-tight partnership between detectives Esa and Rachel, to the truth about a deeply divided nation.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Peter Ganim dramatizes the ethnic and religious tensions at the heart of this crime novel set in Quebec. In a baritone voice, he recounts the danger and dilemmas facing the police after an attack at a local mosque. He portrays both male and female characters equally well as the story moves between detectives Rachel Getty and Esa Khattak. Ganim credibly delivers the French words scattered throughout the novel and produces believable French-accented English for the many minor characters. His narration moves the story between dialogue, action, and long passages from online commentators who debate the issues at the heart of the novel on social media.
