Houston, TX (PRWEB) October 21, 2011
Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Murder Of Hasna, a mystery fiction authored by Arwa Kaso. In this book, the author introduces to readers a woman who is haunted by an apparition of her murdered friend.
Mona Ibrahim is a journalist of Syrian birth, who is haunted by her childhood friend, Hasna, who died an untimely and brutal death at the hands of her estranged husband and cousin, nicknamed Ajou. When Hasna appears before Mona, she recounts in vivid detail, the story of her murder, the events that lead up to it, and the witness who was her six-year-old daughter, Wijdan, a mute child who miraculously spoke to reveal the details of the crime.
Hasna appears both in Mona’s dreams and when she is awake, causing her much torment to the point that she is unable to live a normal life in her new homeland, United States. Perplexed at what could be causing it, she consults regularly with a professor of Philosophy, Professor Shirazi. A man of sharp character, the professor recommends that Mona would not be able to erase the ghosts of her past without returning to her homeland and facing the characters involved in the life and murder of Hasna.
Will this journey back home bring Mona the peace she has been longing for? A tale of self-discovery and acceptance, Murder Of Hasna is a story that will engage readers from beginning to end.
This book will be featured at the New York Library Association Book Exhibit in Saratoga Springs, NY on November 2-5, 2011. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to http://www.Xlibris.com.
