A Dangerous Crossing (Rachel Getty & Esa Khattak, #4) Read Online Free - For Inspector Esa Khattak and Sergeant Rachel Getty, the Syrian refugee crisis is about to become personal. Esa’s childhood friend, Nathan Clare, calls him in distress: his sister, Audrey, has vanished from a Greek island where the siblings run an NGO. Audrey had been working to fast-track refugees to Canada, but now, she is implicated in the double-murder of a French Interpol agent and a young man who had fled the devastation in Syria.
Esa and Rachel arrive in Greece to a shocking scene, witnessing for themselves the massive fallout of the Syrian war in the wretched refugee camps. Tracing Audrey’s last movements, they meet some of the volunteers and refugees―one of whom, Ali, is involved in a search of his own, for a girl whose disappearance may be connected to their investigation. The arrival of Sehr Ghilzai―a former prosecutor who now handles refugee claims for Audrey’s NGO―further complicates the matter for Esa, as his feelings towards her remain unresolved.
Working against time, with Interpol at their heels, Esa and Rachel follow a trail that takes them from the beaches of Greece, to the Turkish–Syrian border, and across Europe, reaching even the corridors of power in the Netherlands. Had Audrey been on the edge of a dangerous discovery, hidden at the heart of this darkest of crises―one which ultimately put a target on her own back?

I have read three of the four books in Ausma Zehanat Khan’s Getty and Khattak series, and I think A Dangerous Crossing was my favourite.
Khan’s series is based in Toronto and always focuses on crimes that have a contemporary international facet. In this case, Getty and Khattak are calle...

Thanks to NetGalley, Minotaur Books/St. Martin's Press and the author for sending me this ARC ebook. I found the the story to be absorbing and depressing. Rachel Getty and Esa Khattak, RCMP police officer partners, are sent to Greece on a personal mission by the Prime Minister to find a Ca...

I’m a big fan of this series for a bunch of reasons, but the biggest is that I get to travel the world while learning about important social issues. Khan has once again written a smart and thoughtful detective mystery which creates a bunch of characters in a way that steers far away from creating...

This is the fourth full length novel in Khan’s Esa Khattak & Rachel Getty mystery series, and quite possibly the best. It certainly is the most heartbreaking. Like her previous novels, the mystery is set against a backdrop of a humanitarian crisis. The Unquiet Dead dealt with the aftermath of...

This is another strong entry in the Rachel Getty/Esa Khattak series. As she has other volumes, Ausma Khan uses the device of a mystery novel to explore a serious human right issue. Earlier books have explored the aftermath of the Srebrenica genocide and the human rights abuses in Iran. A Dangerou...

I'm still enjoying the series, but it's getting further away from being the police procedural that it started out as. Getty and Khattak are interesting characters, and I'm still really enjoying the fact that each new book focuses on cultural and political issues in a different Muslim community, b...

I loved this book. I read Dangerous Crossing in preparation for a panel Ausma Zehanat Khan is going to be on about Writing as Activism at the Colorado Book Festival, and was so impressed. I'm not much of a mystery reader, but if more were as beautiful, and real, and poignant as this one, I would...
