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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
This up-to-the-minute debut is a scorching story of a city divided . . . Written with pace and precision, it gives us a character destined for television but also announces the arrival of a formidable crime writer. * Daily Mail *
Outstanding - relentless, multi-layered suspense and real human drama make this a crime debut to relish -- Lee Child
A tense slice of neo-noir that has won Dhand comparisons to both BBC drama Luther and HBO's The Wire * Observer *
Dhand's Streets of Darkness are in Bradford and they sure are dark . . . The blood count is high but the novel deserves attention for its sheer inventiveness and unbridled energy * The Times *
A sombre, gritty race through the unsettling underbelly of Bradford . . . compelling and unflinching * Yorkshire Post *
