From the Publisher
Annotation The third book by Martyn Waites to feature private investigator Joe Donovan focuses on a series of racial murders in Newcastle, England. Waites elevates the classic thriller plot with subtle explorations into the nature of the racial sects and splinter groups, revealing the often mundane motivations of people preaching extremist doctrines. Unlike countless other suspense protagonists, the character of Joe Donovan continues to evolve and mature throughout the series, as he is actually impacted and affected by the dark, violent world he is forced to inhabit.

Editors Note When a former 1970s radical begins receiving death threats in the aftermath of a Muslim student's brutal murder, investigator Joe Donovan explores the ex-radical's alleged ties to the death of a policeman years earlier; a case that is further complicated by a suicide bombing and racial tensions.
