Long Way Home
The start of a stunning new crime series from a new young talent: DI ZIgic and DS Ferreira from Peterborough's underfunded Hate Crimes Unit are called in when a man is burnt to death in a garden shed.
The locals call it Englandistan. It lies just north of Peterborough's city centre. It's where the migrants who build your houses, clean your offices and pick your food live. Where gang leaders and slum landlords abuse cheap foreign labour. Where a man can be burned to death in a garden shed without the owners raising the alarm.
DS Ferreira dn DI Zigic from the underfunded Hate Crimes Unit are both representatives of earlier waves of migration to the UK; their experiences give them a personal understanding of the issues involved, but does it also risk clouding their judgement? Against a background of simmering racial tension, Ferreira and Zigic must work with both victims and villains alike in this brilliantly written debut from a new crime writing talent."
