About ‘The Party Worker’

Omar Shahid’s The Party Worker is a story which depicts Karachi’s criminal mafia, in cautiously divided chapters.

Each chapter of the book is dedicated to one character from the book. The characters all deliver their particular perspectives in this underworld and ‘give birth to varying consequences to the eventual truth‘.

The book is set in the midst of violence in chaos-torn Karachi.
