Khadija Khan is a young, intelligent woman devoted to her family and community in northern Pakistan.
A few years earlier she had travelled abroad to New York to study Western Civilization and pick up a practical Accounting degree to help her family’s business.
Professor Collins, from NYU needs Khadija’s help to solve an ancient Alexandrian mystery in the Hindu Kush, where over 2,000 years earlier, Alexander the Great and his massive Greek army had traversed over in their campaign to conquer India; a very rugged Mountain range Khadija is very familiar with.
With Khadija’s younger brother Inzamam and the American research team, they trek this breathtakingly beautiful landscape in order to solve an historical mystery.
However, there appears to be an ulterior motive to this expedition that involves Khadija’s older brother Shoaib, who has not been heard from since his return home from New York; dropping out midway of his Medical Degree in October of 2001.
What does Khadija know and why is the CIA so interested in her that they’ll do anything to find out?
Khadija’s War is a novella story of family ties, cultural affiliations and historical colonialism’s impact with the West’s global War on Terror and questionable executive powers of the President; to surveil and assassinate civilians outside the United States.
