The Beat: Black and Blue
by David Belbin
Racist cops, bent lawyers and broken romances confront Ben Shipman in this gripping, hard edged mystery from the author of 'Bone and Cane'. A violent attack on an alternative bookshop leads to an incendiary situation on the streets of Nottingham, where young police officers confront prejudices of every kind. With a new afterword by the author describing the events that this story was based on.
