As promised during Karachi Literature Festival 2014, Omar Shahid Hamid is releasing his new book "The Spinner's Tale" on 19th June 2015. Different from "The Prisoner", the successful take on Karachi's violent politics and terrorism, "The Spinner's Tale" deals with the same problems of violence and terrorism.

Omar did not confirm if it was continuation of The Prisoner, with same characters, but he did say it dealt with the same challenges that were explored in the first novel.
