Luther meets The Wire, this is the first Detective Harry Virdee novel
The sky over Bradford is heavy with foreboding. It always is. But this morning it has reason to be - this morning a body has been found. And it's not just any body.
Detective Harry Virdee should be at home with his wife. Impending fatherhood should be all he can think about but he's been suspended from work just as the biggest case of the year lands on what would have been his desk. He can't keep himself away.
Determined to restore his reputation, Harry is obliged to take to the shadows in search of notorious ex-convict and prime suspect, Lucas Dwight. But as the motivations of the murder threaten to tip an already unstable city into riotous anarchy, Harry finds his preconceptions turned on their head as he discovers what it's like to be on the other side of the law...
