I wanted to share with you my latest read. At our local Tesco they have been doing a book deal with the newspaper. If you buy the sun you get a book for just £2! I much prefer an actual Book to a kindle alternative, this is a great way to grow my collection.
‘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…’
Firstly I really enjoyed this book in the end and can’t wait for the second book to arrive. Harry Virdee is a detective inspector who has recently been suspended from work. Harry was suspended as he assaulted another man, Pradeep. Pradeep doesn’t agree with Harry’s choices to marry a Muslim lady, Saima.
Harry and Saima are very happy together even if it is jut the two of them. They have both been disowned by there families for wanting to be together, but there love for each other was always stronger. Now married and expecting their first baby together, things should be good for them. However Harry’s potential job loss weighs on them both.
Harry is given the opportunity to save his job by finding the EX- leader of the BNP, Lucas Dwight- who has just been released from prison. Lucas is the suspect for the city’s most recent murder. However when Harry starts to believe that Lucas didn’t actually commit the crime, the pair work together to try and solve the case and regain Lucas’s freedom.
Harry and Lucas have to work through many issues to help get to the bottom of the case. Things take a turn for the worst after Harry’s wife, Saima, disappears from their home. With Saima due to go into labour any minute, a Harry does everything he can to ensure he can find her safely. However sometimes you have to cross the wrong side of the law to get things like this done.
Just how far will Harry go?
Will Saima have her baby?
Did Lucas really kill anyone?
There are so many questions you may have for this book, without ruining the end, things just aren’t always as they seem. And it’s a very small world in the end.
If you like fast paced, gripping books then this is definitely one for you! It also explores the divide between religions that I myself didn’t really understand st the beginning.
Hope you enjoyed this review. I recommend this to anyone.
Thanks for reading
