Hatred and murder breed in dark places ...

In the long shadows of an alley a young man is murdered, savagely kicked and beaten to death by assailant or assailants unknown. It is a crime shocking in its raw brutality, and its shattering repercussions will be felt throughout a small provincial community on the edge -- because the victim was far from innocent, a youth whose sordid secret life was a tangle of terrifying contradictions and virulent racial hatred. And now a dedicated policeman beset by his own tormenting demons must follow the leads into the rankest pits of man's inhumanity to man -- to catch a killer before his village explodes.

What a book! Peter Robinson really knows his stuff about racism in Britain these days. Immigration appears to be as much a problem today as it was in the '50's. Many English people left Britain in the '50's & '60's as immigrants came in. Of course, not all immigrants fell into crime but English people somehow "felt" they were the cause of the trouble that occurred. Robinson captured the racism at its best. Interestingly, the main characters are white. What is to happen to CDI Banks now he is suspended? Now I need to read the next book to find out!
