AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Australian teenager, Jaime Richards, was back on holidays in the Pakistan she grew up in. The old world charm was still there - the villages, the bazaars and the mysterious rugs - but the barrel of a Kalashnikov changed it all.'

'Taken at gunpoint beyond the ancient Khyber Pass, Jaime and her friends were to be caught up in a shadowy secret world of intrigue and terrorism. Would they escape the Mujahadeen, fighting their holy war? And what of Jasper's own struggles within?

'For Jaime, this trip was to prove painful enough to change her life forever, yet also it was to prove strangely rewarding'. (Source: back cover.)
