The third novel in the acclaimed Joe Donovan series by “Britain’s answer to Michael Connelly” (Ken Bruen).

When the savagely beaten body of a Muslim student is discovered in a rundown area of Newcastle, blame falls on the far right National Unity Party—but for once they appear to be innocent. after the death of a supposed suicide bomber, the investigation takes a more dangerous turn as our protagonist and his team find themselves the targets of a ruthless killer unlike any they have faced before. A killer who will do anything to ensure an explosive thirty-year-old secret remains buried. Anything—even orchestrating a brutal race war that will tear the city apart, with Donovan caught in the middle.
