Among the Ruins is the third book in the mystery series that follows Rachel Getty and Esa Khattak. While I recommend reading the first two books because they are fantastic, they also work as standalone mysteries if you are new to the series. Esa Khattak is a Muslim Canadian detective and the latest book leads him to Iran where he is looking into the suspicious death of a Canadian-Iranian filmmaker. Khan perfectly combines a classic mystery style with a modern and unique view by focusing on Muslim characters and issues. These books are perfect for anyone who loves mysteries and wants to widen their scope beyond the Western world.
