Read full description of the books Surat-surat Misterius:"In 1986 Pakistan's greatest poet was found brutally murdered, beaten to death by government thugs. Two years later his lover, fearless activist Samina Akram, disappeared. Her daughter, Aasmani has always assumed her mother simply abandoned her - since she had left so many times before, following the Poet into exile." But now, working at Pakistan's first independent TV station, Aasmani runs into an old friend of her mother's who hands her a letter written - recently - in the Poet and Samina's secret code. As more letters arrive, Aasmani becomes certain that will lead her to Samina. Despite menacing signs, the disbelief of her family, and the worries of her new lover, Aasmani decodes the letters and searches for their source. But if she manages to locate it, will she find what she's looking for?
