Long Way Home Synopsis

The launch of a major new detective series from the publishers of Henning Mankell, Arnaldur Indridason and Fred Vargas A man is burnt alive in a suburban garden shed. DI Zigic and DS Ferreira are called in from the Peterborough Hate Crimes Unit to investigate the murder. Their victim is quickly identified as a migrant worker and a man several people might have had good reason to see dead. A convicted arsonist and member of a far-right movement has just been released from prison, while witnesses claim to have seen the dead man fighting with one of the town's most prominent slum landlords. Zigic and Ferreira know all too well the problems that come with dealing with a community that has more reason than most not to trust the police, but when another migrant worker is attacked, tensions rapidly begin to rise as they search for their killer.

The Good Book Guide Review

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.

Eva Dolan Press Reviews

A stunning debut... The subject matter is fascinating, the execution of it is a joy to read -- James Oswald, author of Natural Causes, the winner of the Richard and Judy 2013 Summer Book Club Long Way Home is one of the strongest debut novels I've read in a long time. Beautifully written and imagined, Dolan renders a previously hidden world alive with compelling detail. Original and gripping, compassionate and salutary, you won't want to stop reading until the final page -- Stav Sherez, author of A Dark Redemption Cool, confident and classy, Eva Dolan's LONG WAY HOME is a stand out debut that combines intelligent, issue-led crime fiction with a vivid prose style, a compelling plot and a detective duo to root for. Dolan provides a fresh and fascinating insight into a little-known aspect of Modern Britain, and I can't wait to read more of DI Zigic and DS Ferreira in future books -- Chris Ewan Long Way Home is a truly exceptional debut crime novel, a perceptive, smart and harrowing look at modern England. Written with great skill, confidence and originality, it feels like a game-changer for twenty-first century British crime fiction -- Doug Johnstone, author of Smokeheads and Hit and Run Long Way Home gave me that tingle of excitement that only happens rarely, the feeling I got when I first read George Pelecanos and Dennis Lehane - the combination of brilliant writing, a thrilling plot and social heart. I genuinely think it's one of the best debuts I've ever read -- Mark Edwards
