He Kills Coppers (Paperback)Jake Arnott (author)
- Not available
August 1966: the long hot summer of World Cup euphoria is suddenly shattered by a brutal crime that shocks a nation seemingly at ease with itself. Three characters' fates are irrevocably bound up with this event and consequences that reverberate across three decades: an ambitious detective dragged into intrigues of corruption; a gutter press journalist with a nose for a nasty story; and a disaffected petty criminal pushed over the edge by a violent crime that haunts him.
An epic story that looks at morality and corruption on both sides of the law and at the very heart of the state.
