On a February evening in northern Africa, Samira and Yasin Omer watch their parents die in the cross-fire of a hostage-rescue. Samira is vivacious and sociable. Yasin is a brilliant student and a thinker. They are twins, left with no family except each other.
ABSOLUTE MEASURES, chilling in its predictions of the upheavals sweeping the developing world, tracks the psychological complexity of the brilliant young student, Yasin. He sets out to become an international banker. He ends up planning a devastating attack on London – and the only one who can stop him is the only person he loves, his sister.
A novel of considerable power.
Too close to the real world for comfort.
