Mark Twain [1835-1910] once said, "Man is a Religious Animal. He is the only Religious Animal. He is the only animal that has the True Religion--several of them."

Honour Killings in Canada

 

The New Crusades- Book 1
The Globe and Mail published a headline by Gerald Caplan in 2010: "Honour killings in Canada: even worse than we believe." That sort of claim was backed, for example, by the Shafia family murders of July 2009.

So, when Waldemar Guenter discovered a bloody body in the woods at Balls Falls, Ontario, he decided to write a murder mystery book about this incredible practice, as a kind of therapy. Wally did his research, specifically focusing his attention on Canadian honour killings. He was a photographer and had an eye for beauty and nature and scenery, and so a horrific discovery like he'd made was a very traumatic thing for him. Honour killings in Canada? How could that happen in his country!

The dead girl's name was Hazirah. It was agreed among the family that Aamir, her own brother, would kill her, because she obstinately refused to stop dating an infidel, a white Christian boy. After the deed was done, the parents emptied their bank account and helped Aamir escape to Syria so he could join ISIS. Two detectives, in the Niagara Region, arrested the parents for their complicity in the honour killing. Meanwhile, Aamir was trained by ISIS, given a false passport, and ordered to return to Canada on a mission to continue "unfinished business."

“Let what is right be right,” said the father. “It was an honor killing, not a murder, as Allah is our witness.” The parents demanded to be tried under Shari'ah Law. They did not recognize Canadian Law. They would appeal the court decision if found guilty.

Wally, who discovered the gruesome body, just couldn't fathom the extremes of Islam. How could anybody's God, whether Islam...or Christian, condone such a thing?

Detective Spencer and Abqurah follow through on wedding plans. Abqurah is the surviving daughter from the first novel. So in this sequel, where else do Spencer and Abqurah go for their honeymoon but Paris, France? It happens to be January 7, 2015. The Kouachi Brothers have just massacred a bunch of employees at the Charlie Hebdo Magazine. France is on high terror alert. Yet, not all is lost for the honeymooning couple because they run into a guy named, Jack.
