9780099572220: The Banker's Daughter

All of our parents have secrets. But Hanna Mehdi's father is unusual. He ran a major bank that collapsed in suspicious circumstances. When it fell, he turned up at her door and told her they had to run away. They fled to a luxury hotel in Beirut which has now become home.

One day Hanna discovers that her father may have done far worse than make risky bets on the money markets. She finds a photograph that turns her privileged life upside down. As Hanna follows the trail of blood from Beirut to Lahore to London, her eyes are opened to the real world in which she has been living. Suddenly she is forced to grapple with the costs of her freedom and choose - the dull and guilty ease of being the banker's daughter? Or the rough comfort of facing up to the truth?
