On a rainy night in Eastvale, a teenager is found in an alleyway, smashed over the head with a beer bottle and beaten to death. What first looks like a typical after-hours pub brawl gone seriously wrong soon becomes more complex and more sinister. The victim, Jason Fox, was a member of a white power organization known as the Albion League, and had recently been let go from his factory job because of his racist views.

So who was his killer? The Pakistani youths he had insulted in the pub earlier that evening? The shady friends of his business partner, Mark Wood? Or could it have been someone from the organization who was concerned with Jason's growing power?

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks and Detective Constable Susan Gay must struggle with a case complicated by escalating racial tensions and simmering departmental politics.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Inspector Banks Once Again Although another great mystery, I’ll have to say that I liked this Peter Robinson book a little less than his previous novels. The plot was solid and interesting but there was no great mystery or guessing game to this book. Inspector Alan Banks has a lot of personal things that happen to him, which will perhaps impact future books that Robinson has written and might just be the reason this particular novel was a more quiet mystery than others. As I’ve said before...Robinson’s books flow with a special cadence that continues to make him one of my favourite mystery authors. Looking forward to seeing what Banks is up to in the next one!
