In September 1996, a fourteen-year-old Fatima Bhutto hid in a windowless dressing room, shielding her baby brother while shots rang out in the streets outside the family home in Karachi. This was the evening that her father Murtaza was murdered, along with six of his associates. In December 2007, Benazir Bhutto, Fatimas aunt, and the woman she had publically accused of ordering her fathers murder, was assassinated in Rawalpindi. It was the latest in a long line of tragedies for one of the worlds best known political dynasties.
Songs of Blood and Sword tells the story of a family of rich feudal landlords the proud descendents of a warrior caste who became powerbrokers in the newly created state of Pakistan. It is an epic tale full of the romance and legend of feudal life, the glamour and licence of the international political elite and ultimately, the tragedy of four generations of a family defined by a political idealism that would destroy them.
The history of this extraordinary family mirrors the tumultuous events of Pakistan itself, and the quest to find the truth behind her fathers murder has led Fatima to the heart of her countrys volatile political establishment. It is the history of a nation from Partition through the struggle with India over Kashmir, the Cold War, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan up to the post 9/11 War on Terror.
It is also a book about a daughters love for her father and her search to uncover, and to understand, the truth of his life and death. It is a book about a family and nation riven by murder, corruption, conspiracy and division, written by one who has lived it, in the heart of the storm.
Songs of Blood and Sword is a book of international significance by a young woman who has already established herself as a brave and passionate campaigner.
