Publisher's Summary

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. Not the best time for Trevor Whitman to return to his native north-east. Haunted by his violent past, Whitman is tormented by anonymous calls alluding to the murder of a policeman 30 years before. Investigator Joe Donovan's team are called in to investigate. But, following the death of a supposed suicide bomber, what should be a routine investigation takes a more dangerous turn as the team find themselves the target of a ruthless killer. A killer who will do anything to ensure an explosive secret remains buried.


What the Critics Say

"White Riot is written in the sort of bovver-boots-and-dustbin-lids staccato prose that doesn't so much leap off the page as threaten to smack the reader in the mouth." (Guardian)
"Hard-hitting, socially-concerned crime of the highest caliber with the potential to emulate Mark Billingham." (Maxim Jakubowski, The Bookseller)
