Silence hides the worst crimes. A man is burnt alive in a suburban garden shed. No witnesses, no fingerprints - only a positive ID of the victim as an immigrant with a long list of enemies. Detectives Zigic and DS Ferreira are called in from the Hate Crimes Unit to track the killer, and are met with silence in a Fenland community ruled by slum racketeers, people-trafficking gangs and fear. Tensions rise. The clock is ticking. But nobody wants to talk.

Eva Dolan’s debut crime novel tackles a contemporary issue, people trafficking, with great sensitivity and a compelling plot. The Hate Crimes Unit is called in when a body with no fingerprints, but a positive visual ID as an immigrant is found in a burnt-out garden shed. Is the dead body on the railway track linked? Are the owners of the shed as innocent as they claim? The Fenland community is resolutely taciturn, but Detectives Zigic and Ferraira pursue any possible lead as the tensions in the community rise. An impressive series debut, and the next book will be eagerly awaited.
