A reformed Sicilian criminal, Carmelo Trapani, has been kidnapped and his search for the aged Carmello leads Staffe all the way back to a terrible act at the Battle of Cable Street. Meanwhile, Staffe's own loyal servant, DS Pulford, is in Pentonville awaiting trial for the murder of Jadus Golding, the very man who attempted to murder Staffe, leaving wounds from which Staffe is still recovering and it suits some in the heirarchy to see Pulford go down. Can Staffe save Carmelo without leaving Pulford to the political vultures? As he battles find the man who murdered his own assailant, pressures also mount from within and Staffe's heart falters - in every way. His job is on the line and when he least expects it, his own past puts a gun to his head. Hailed as 'London's answer to The Wire,' Kill And Tell takes the Staffe series up a notch and into the very highest echelon of contemporary crime writing.
December 2009 Book of the Month. A gritty crime novel, sometimes making for uncomfortable reading, Adam Creed has DI Staffe, covering a case where a paedophile has been murdered. The reader finds themselves wondering whether to take the side of the vigilantes or the law and this is cleverly done and makes for a tense read at times but the plotline propels the reader through to a great ending.
