Hamad AlHamady’s ‘Is There More?’: New Emirati Thriller in Translation

Arabic Literature (in English)

Sawad Hussain brings an excerpt of Hamad AlHamady’s terrorism thriller Is There More? into English:

By Sawad Hussain

Hamad AlHamady’s Is There More? is a fast-paced thriller based on real-life events surrounding the biggest known planned terrorist attack on the UAE. The novel jumps between Iran, the home base of the attackers; the UAE, where a family finds itself smack in the middle of the plot; and Syria. The reader is taken on a roller-coaster ride through the genesis and development of a major attack, as well as the measures adopted by those aiming to foil it, with each chapter leaving unanswered questions and more rabbit holes to travel down in search of the truth. Is There More? is a welcome genre addition for Arabic literature, and promises to keep the reader engaged from start to finish.
