You may have caught some of the Inspector Lynley Mysteries on TV. If so then this will fill in a lot of background for you, in fact the private lives of Havers, Nkota and Lynley could almost be a separate book! This latest case involves “institutionalised racism”, it’s involved, on occasions a bit “ploddy” but keep with it, the rewards are there. It’s dramatic stuff.

Comparison: P D James, Jim Kelly, Ruth Rendell.
When the Metropolitan Police fail to realize a serial killer is at work, London ignites over the fact that the killer’s victims are young black and mixed race boys. Institutionalized prejudice is claimed by the community’s activists and tabloids alike. Acting Superintendent Thomas Lynley is given the case, and his Scotland Yard task force is soon handling more killings and a looming tragedy.
