When you open a can and it has prunes in it, it’s a can of prunes. Confirms all your expectations. But open a can of worms and your expectations go viral. Alfie Barnes, brother of Jack Shepherd’s close friend Linda, is beaten to death on the Downs. Shepherd is warned to stay away from the active police case. Then Danny Malone, a violent and dangerous ex-copper, knocks on his office door. Malone’s daughter, a 22-year-old soap superstar, has disappeared and he wants Shepherd to find her before the issue becomes a front page story. His reward, will be cast iron information on who killed Alfie. One case bleeds into the other. As the threats and the troubles multiply, Shepherd is dragged into the racist, murderous world of the city’s hard right and a campaign of brutal Islamophobia. A tough, current story which pulls no punches, from the author of Closing the Distance and Changing the Odds.
