The war in Bosnia and its aftermath have been largely overlooked by the West. The same is not true of those who experienced it. Set in Canada, The Unquiet Dead is both a mystery and a commentary on the aftermath of war and its effects on many survivors. Inspector Esa Khattak finds himself investigating the seemingly accidental death of Christopher Drayton by a fall off a cliff path. But some evidence doesn’t line up and then, either does Drayton’s life and maybe his identity. As more comes to light, Khattak is caught between loyalty to the Muslim immigrants with whom he identifies, and his duties to pursue the truth wherever it leads. When does justice become retribution and whose rights are the most valid? These and other ethical and moral questions arise in this tautly written novel.
