Publisher's Summary

When a bunch of neo-fascist thugs named The Bulldogs attack a Gay pride march in the sleepy country town of Lafferton, detective Simon Serrailler moves quickly to find the assailants. He's already got his hands full making security arrangements for a memorial service to honour soldiers returning from Afghanistan. When anonymous threats come in, Serrailler wonders if the Bulldogs are behind these too - and worries that they know the Prince of Wales will be in attendance. As the day approaches, the threats intensify, and Serrailler finds himself racing against the clock to prevent catastrophe.

Police have very politically correct attitudes.

Not very exciting. Politically correct viewpoints. Lots of domestic padding. Few chapters for main story line. And I think that decisions made would have been done by somebody considerably more senior than a Major. A relatively junior officer.
I'm glad I'm not a neighbour of the terribly boring central character!
