In the aftermath of September 11, Those Houses on the Ridge is an intelligently spun tale written in the name of the children who die as suicide bombers. When Margaret, an anthropologist from London, embarks on an excursion to study the inhabitants of a remote area in Pakistan, little does she know about the involvement she will have in the lives of an innocent family in Those Houses on the Ridge. What follows is a tale of suicide bombers and human trafficking that can even seep into that hidden part of the world. The story follows the trails of Jaffer, an innocent boy lured into religious fanaticism, and his journey to break away from it as he enters adulthood. He treads many shores and wanders hopelessly to pick up the missing pieces of his childhood (including his missing father), and to break free from those suicide bombers who would not let him walk away alive. But does his livelihood and freedom mean letting go of his only blood relative, his mother? Or will he choose to return to his only true love, Zubaida, who might not even be there This explosive novel has it all to tell Javaid Syed is a widely traveled academic who has delivered lectures at universities in the United States, Canada, Britain and the Far East.
