The Leopard’s Daughter: A Pukhtun Story by David Raeburn Finn is out now, published through Lemahouse.
The novel, which has a strong anti-war message, relates the story of Mohammed – a skilled, politically naïve surgeon of Pashtun descent who joins US Special Forces as a front-line medic at a secret base in Kunar, Afghanistan.
His Muslim faith and background already have him on a secret CIA watch list dubbed OWL (Others Watch List). Alerted by OWL, his base commander’s suspicions heighten as Mohammed converses and prays with, then physically defends, Afghan civilian villagers against murderous company soldiers.
Mohammed survives a cross-border ambush and is taken in by a passing Pashtun family. Here, Mohammed falls in love with a young Pashtun widow, Shahay. His visit, however, unknowingly sets in motion a CIA operation aimed at discovering Mohammed’s true allegiance – one which will brings horror to Shahay’s family and gruesome deaths to her community.
