Reviews


This idiosyncratic and individual thriller writing from a novelist and filmmaker whose knowledge of and experience in the region he describes grant a fierce verisimilitude to the narrative. At a stroke, The Warehouse identifies Mausoof as a writer to be watched with close attention
Barry Forshaw, Financial Times
The Warehouse has all the black arts of a regular thriller in a setting you only hear of in disturbing late-night new programmes... this is Philip Marlow stuff with a frighteningly real-life AK47-toting edge, and you'll want to follow Cash, but from a safe distance
Jon Wise, Sunday Sport
'[The Warehouse] is an illustration of the width of the 'crime fiction' genre… a Swiftian exploration of the madness of war... [S.S. Mausoof] pulls no punches in depicting human cruelty both personal and institutional'
Chris Roberts, Crime Review
 This is a novel of action and adventure, with its questions and its twists and turns. An intrigue under the sign of death, where the hero is confronted with multiple dangers           
Clause Le Nocher, Action-Suspense

Karachi insurance surveyor Syed Qais Ali Qureshi, or "Cash" to his friends and enemies, manages to remain wisecrackingly jaunty as a dubious mission to investigate a warehouse fire in Taliban-controlled Waziristan goes all kinds of wrong. First in a new series that puts an endearingly Chandleresque hero in a location that's been a byword for treachery since the Great Game
