Emran Mian

The Banker's Daughter
  • 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?

Emran Mian is a civil servant working in the Cabinet Office. He wasn't involved in the bank bailouts; on the other hand, he did write the report that led to higher university tuition fees. He is a frequent contributor to Prospect magazine and the author of an acclaimed non-fiction book about the lives of autistic adults, Send In The Idiots: Stories from the Other Side of Autism. This is his first novel.
