Author description

Sarbjit Athwal is a British Indian, whose sister-in-law Surjit was the victim of a forced marriage and honour killing. Sarbjit secretly and bravely campaigned for justice for Surjit, seeking murder convictions for her husband's mother and brother. They were jailed but Sarbjit continues to receive death threats and ostracisation by the Sikh community in Britain. She has now become a police community support officer, in gratitude for the staunch support of Detective Chief Inspector Clive Driscoll.
