John Ling is a Malaysian-born writer based in New Zealand. By day, he works as a producer at TVNZ, the nation's largest broadcaster. By night, he is the managing editor of Kia Kaha Press, a publishing imprint. His thriller, The Blasphemer, is available now as an e-book from Amazon.com
When Abraham Khan releases an e-book condemning radical Islam, the consequences hit him fast and hard -- an armed fanatic smashes into his home one evening, trying to kill him. He survives the harrowing attempt. Just barely. But will he survive the next one?
Maya Raines is the security operator brought in to protect Abraham. She is tough and committed. The very best at what she does. Always one step ahead of the threat.
But Abraham is no ordinary principal -- he will not hide, and he will not stay silent. And as rage explodes on the streets and the nation is propelled to the brink, Maya will have to ask herself the hardest question of all: how far would you go to protect one man's right to speak?
