    • Abstract:
      Summary: "From the critically acclaimed author Ausma Zehanat Khan, A Deadly Divide is the devastatingly powerful new thriller featuring beloved series detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty. In the aftermath of a mass shooting at a mosque in Quebec, the local police apprehend Amadou Duchon--a young Muslim man at the scene helping the wounded--but release Etienne Roy, the local priest who was found with a weapon in his hands. The shooting looks like a hate crime, but detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty sense there is more to the story. Sent to liaise with a community in the grip of fear, they find themselves in fraught new territory, fueled by the panic and suspicion exploited by a right-wing radio host. As Rachel and Esa grapple to stop tensions shutting the case down entirely, all the time, someone is pointing Esa in another direction, a shadowy presence who anticipates his every move. A Deadly Divide is a piercingly observed, gripping thriller that reveals the fractures that try to tear us all apart: from the once-tight partnership between detectives Esa and Rachel, to the truth about a deeply divided nation"-- Provided by publisher.

Booklist Reviews 2019 February #2

The first case in Quebec for National Community Policing detectives Esa Khattak and Rachel Getty's (last seen in A Dangerous Crossing, 2018) proves personally and professionally dangerous. In Saint-Isidore-du-Lac, dozens of worshippers have been murdered in the town's mosque. Young congregant Amadou Duchon is arrested as he runs from the mosque. Inside, the town's priest, Father Etienne Roy, is found holding an automatic rifle, but somehow isn't detained by the Sûreté de Québec. As activist Diana Shehadeh stirs media and protestors, Isabelle Clement arrives to represent Quebec's premier, and the town's white nationalist Wolf Brotherhood vows to protect Quebecois culture by any means necessary. Esa and Rachel attempt to awaken the lead detective, Christian Lemaire, to evidence of alternative suspects, but Esa is off his game, shaken by the enraged anti-Muslim movement infecting Quebec and unexpected emotions sparked by the involvement of Alizah Siddiqui, whom he connected with on an earlier case. Khan masterfully weaves story-driving character development and pitch-perfect investigation with timely social commentary on the impact of cultural tensions. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

PW Reviews 2018 December #4

Issues of religion, culture, and racism take center stage in Khan's outstanding fifth novel featuring Insp. Esa Khattak, the Toronto-based head of Canada's Community Policing Section (after 2018's A Dangerous Crossing). Esa and his partner, Sgt. Rachel Getty, travel to the small Quebec town of Saint-Isidore-du-Lac, where eight people have been shot dead in a mosque in an apparent hate crime. The local police, led by racist Insp. Christian Lemaire of the Sûreté du Quebec, quickly arrest Amadou Duchon, a young Muslim man who was at the scene helping the wounded. The Quebec police also conduct a superficial interview with priest Étienne Roy, who was holding the murder weapon, before releasing him. The priest denies having fired it. In the course of their investigation, Esa and Rachel find a town divided by cultural differences, egged on by a right-wing radio host, and panicked by immigrants and the small Muslim community whose religion is compromised by Quebec's controversial Codes of Conduct, which favor Catholics. Khan perceptively explores how fear can quickly erupt into violence. Agent: Danielle Burby, Hannigan Salky Getzler. (Feb.)
