‘A story as fresh as today’s newspaper headlines – and all the more potent for being so.’ Daily Mail
Amit Dhand was raised in Bradford and spent his youth observing the city from behind the counter of a small convenience store.
After qualifying as a pharmacist, he worked in London and travelled extensively before returning to Bradford to start his own business and begin writing.
The history, diversity and darkness of the city have inspired his Harry Virdee novels.
His novel, Streets of Darkness, was published to great acclaim in 2017 and the follow-up, Girl Zero, has been selected for this year’s Read Regional.
