In the riveting international thriller "The Kashmir Affair," an actor-turned-terrorist joins forces with an investigator to thwart a plot devised by his former comrades.

Sai Sankalap, published by iUniverse, Inc., the leading provider of publishing technology solutions for authors, announced today the release of "The Kashmir Affair" (ISBN 0-595-36116-1), an action/adventure novel.

In Afghanistan, a highly sought-after terrorist oversees the shelling of the tallest mountain-carved statue in the world—a Buddha situated in the Bamian Valley—and recruits men for his ruthless cause.

Meanwhile, in the United States, Bollywood actor Joshua Borendhi narrowly escapes an early-morning assassination attempt and learns that he is a prime target for the lethal terror cell. A former terrorist himself, Joshua left the organization against the wishes of the leader and moved to New York to study acting. Shortly after the botched hit, the terrorists are on the prowl again, and this time the target is the Times Square subway. The FBI emerges on the scene, sidestepping the wily, old NYPD Sergeant Hoyden McDonald. In a frantic race across America, Joshua and Sergeant McDonald match the terrorists step for step. The final destination: Seattle.

The FBI dispatches Joshua and Sergeant McDonald to identify and stop the war between the two countries with a violent history as war clouds loom on the horizon. Can the two men handle the heat of the Mujahideens, the violent Muslim guerilla warriors, infested in the Kashmir valley? And who is the radical mastermind leading them?

In "The Kashmir Affair," Sai Sankalap has amazingly blended action with sensitivity in a well-told international story. At the core of the novel is a simple theme of love, forgiveness and redemption. The Kashmir Affair is a story that will leave readers wanting more.

" 'The Kashmir Affair' is a well-written first effort and the story flowed in an action-packed, delightful fashion, with a tantalizing twist at the end… With his talent and an effort to read similar books in his genre and research his actions, it is this reader's opinion, that he will have a successful future…"
