The car that ploughs into the bus stop early one morning leaves a trail of death and destruction behind it. DS Ferreira and DI Zigic are called in from the Peterborough Hate Crimes Unit to handle the hit-and-run, but with another major case on their hands, one with disturbing Neo-Nazi overtones, they are relieved when there seems to be an obvious suspect. But the case isn't that simple and with tensions erupting in the town leading to more violence, the media are soon hounding them for answers. Ferreira believes that local politician Richard Shotton, head of a recently established right-wing party, must be involved somehow. Journalists have been quick to acclaim Shotton, with his Brazilian wife and RAF career, as a serious contender for a major political career, despite his extremist views, but is his party a cover for something far more dangerous?
Certain debut novels almost immediately create a stir for a variety of reasons: an unusual concept, a striking writing style. But Eva Dolan’s inaugural book in her series featuring detectives Zigic and Ferreira, Long Way Home, was something particularly special with its vision of contemporary Britain and the problems associated with immigrant communities. That book was highly impressive, making readers eager for the second book. And it’s good to report that Dolan has done it again, achieving something quite unlike the work of her contemporaries, as her detectives investigate a series of deaths after a car ploughs into a bus stop.
Tell No Tales is a powerful authentic, superbly written story, which proves that her brilliant debut was no fluke. Eva Dolan is definitely the real deal -- Howard Linskey Tell No Tales is a gripping insight into a rarely seen and highly relevant area of policing. Eva Dolan is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. -- Emma Kavanagh, author of Falling Fantastic... An utterly compelling crime novel that pierces the veil of social, racial and political issues in Britain today. I loved it -- Steve Cavanagh, author of The Defence
