David Underwood, a hopeless romantic and regular on the drug-fuelled gay scene in London, meets Yossi, an Israeli Jew, at a nightclub. A long distance relationship develops and David begins to uncover the truth behind Yossi's tragic past.
But what will happen when David's ex, Ahmed, who is under intense family pressure to marry, makes a sudden reappearance? And how does the terrorist atrocity of 7/7 mark a turning point for the lovers? Will David find a way to be with Ahmed or will he start a new life in Israel with Yossi?
"Homo Jihad is a high-octane account of a gay love affair set in a world of chemical highs and religious fervour. It's an impressive debut from an exciting new voice in gay fiction."
Paul Burston, author of The Gay Divorcee
"Homo Jihad is a compelling gay love story which,
in many ways, captures the zeitgeist of our times.
Powerful stuff! A real page turner."
Amjeed Kabil, author of Straightening Ali
