Inspector Matthew Merry and Sergeant Julie Lukula have to deal with the consequences of violence and murder on a daily basis and in the case of Gerry Driver they both see that hatred is the prime motive. But is it, as Julie thinks, one of a series of hate crimes that has led to this killing? Or, is Matthew right in saying, ‘Driver’s death is undoubtedly a hate filled crime but I’m just not convinced that there are sufficient links to suggest it is part of a pattern of hate crimes.’

Only time and their investigation, which takes as many twists and turns as the Thames does along it course through London and past Wapping Old Stairs, will tell.

The police knocking and giving her the heart wrenching news. I could actually feel that emotion it was like a kick in the gut.

The descriptive writing had me in the park with the police, had me sitting in the front rooms questioning people, in the police room being part of the team
says Zoe @zooloo2008 online reviewer on Goodreads and Amazon.

I found myself carried along with the story as it twists and turns, incidentally presenting an interesting picture of twenty first century life.
Says Julie @NorthernReader online reviewer on Goodreads and Amazon.

A well written book that draws you into the detectives world. The author succeeds in creating memorable characters that stay with you. Highly recommended. 5 stars.
Says Caroline @thedivinewrite1 online reviewer on Goodreads and Amazon.

This book is a complex and clever read which deals realistically with many who are marginalised and meet with prejudice.
Says Julie @NorthernReader online reviewer on Goodreads and Amazon.

The story is an even pace that kept me entranced and determined to find out who murdered Geraldine and why. Recommend highly.
