Homo Jihad

David Underwood, a hopeless romantic and regular on the drug-fuelled gay scene in London, meets Yossi, an Israeli Jew, at a nightclub. A long distance relationship develops and David begins to uncover the truth behind Yossi's tragic past. 

But what will happen when David's ex, Ahmed, who is under intense family pressure to marry, makes a sudden reappearance? And how does the terrorist atrocity of 7/7 mark a turning point for the lovers? Will David find a way to be with Ahmed or will he start a new life in Israel with Yossi? 

“This has to be one of the most ambitious novels ever written, dealing with everything from illicit Muslim homosexuality and hate crime to GHB abuse and international terrorism. Graves is a writer to watch.” Attitude

Homo Jihad is an impressive debut from an exciting new voice in gay fiction.” Time Out

"Homo Jihad is a high-octane account of a gay love affair set in a world of chemical highs." - Paul Burston, author of The Gay Divorcee 

"Homo Jihad is a compelling gay love story which, in many ways, captures the zeitgeist of our times. Powerful stuff! A real page turner." - Amjeed Kabil, author of Straightening Ali
