About the Book: The Indus Intercept
A sharply plotted espionage thriller
Balochistan, 2003: a drama of insurgency and international intrigue unfolds in Pakistan’s dust bowl province. At the centre of it is the Mir, a militant Baloch separatist driven as much by the need to seek revenge as he is by his ardour for a free homeland. He leads a life in the shadows, eluding the ISI as he flirts with the CIA and RAW.
In the midst of this intrigue, American soldiers on the Af-Pak border discover a mysterious note written in the ancient Indus Valley script. The CIA tasks Alejo Covas, a deep cover agent living in Quetta, with deciphering its significance. His investigations lead him to the ancient archaeological site of Mehrgarh where he meets Adiva, an American-born Pakistani woman researching Baloch folklore. They are soon caught up in a chain of events that are unleashed by the Mir, who is planning his boldest strike yet – one that could set South Asia ablaze.
As Alejo races to avert a catastrophic war, political expediency intrudes on morality, deception lurks at every step, and love and betrayal go hand-in-hand.
