GENRE: Crime Fiction

SUMMARY: Louis grew up in the toughest streets of Birmingham. The streets where his own friends wouldn’t think twice before stabbing him in the back. The streets where women were seen as sex objects, rather than people. The streets where showing emotion was seen as a weakness. The streets where “kill or be killed” was the code that you needed to live by in order to survive…

The BookViral Review:

An edgy and hard-hitting read from the start, Kill or be Killed (Mafia Kingpin Book 1) keeps it real with Khaliq plumbing the darker depths of society. Not only telling a compelling story but ably managing to avoid the spectre of predictability which seems the bane of the genre.

There are few things more rewarding in crime fiction than good plot twists, but get it wrong and writers risk leaving their readers feeling swindled. Khaliq, however, pitches it just right with multiple narrative perspectives, giving us just enough to ensure momentum doesn’t falter whilst she keeps us guessing as to where loyalties will ultimately lay.

Writing in acerbic prose with a strong eye for detail her characters are insightful and deftly drawn, shunning the genre tendency towards apathetic stereotypes to deliver flawed real-world personas that will powerfully resonate with Khaliq’s readers. They’re caustic and energetic. Ensuring narrative momentum doesn’t falter as plotlines converge and darkly disturbing events unfold. And through them, Khaliq not only maintains psychological tension but encourages us to reflect on the consequences of peer pressure and the often tragic consequences of online grooming.

A dark and compelling start to Khaliq’s Mafia Kingpin series, Kill or be Killed is certainly recommended..

How Science Fiction Authors Are Shaping Our Future

As fantastical as science fiction seems, there is often something familiar about the incredible concepts dreamt up by its writers. In fact, not only familiar at times but eerily accurate about future advances. Is this some kind of scientific prophesy? Is there something sinister going on?
