Publisher's Summary

August 1958. DI Stratton has just been posted to Notting Hill. Stratton's new manor is rife with racial tension. The end of the war saw a flood of Caribbean migrants. Now, a decade later, working-class Teddy Boys are showing mounting hostility towards their black neighbours.
Notorious landlord Danny Perlmann, a Polish refugee, is taking full advantage and is making a fortune off the high rents he charges. Caught in the middle of this war over rents and turf is Irene, a young runaway on the verge of going on the game. When Perlmann's rent collector is murdered, Stratton is called to investigate.
Notting Hill is a cauldron, and Stratton is right at the heart of it.

An excellent series continues

Time is moving on for DI Statton and an insight into changing social attitudes have been skilfully interwoven with each book's main plot throughout the series. Finding his feet on his new and very different patch Stratton is now caught up with slum landlords and racial tensions. A good thought provoking story as always brilliantly read by Sean Barrett.

Great Period Feel

Excellent period feel on this novel set in the race riots of the late 50's in Notting Hill. The dialogue was totally convincing and Sean Barrett is one of the great narrators anyway. It is totally convincing as a novel that was actually written at the time which is a great achievement. I enjoy the combo of Laura Wilson and Sean Barrett.
