Lost Riders This novel dramatises a contemporary form of slavery in its account of two young Pakistani boys trafficked from their rural village, their widowed mother duped into believing that rich families in the Gulf States are willing to pay for playmates for their children. On arrival in Dubai, eight year old Rashid and his little brother, Shari, are separated and taken to camps where - prized for their small stature - they are forced to train as camel jockeys. Rashid's determination that he and his brother should escape this brutal world and regain their freedom gives the story is shape and exciting pace.
