An interesting novel. The basic scenario was very clever, focusing on racial tensions in Bradford, though the characters seemed a little wooden. This was Ms Horton's first novel, and, having read one of her subsequent ones I can see that she did make the characters evolve and developed a greater facility for making them more plausible and realistic.

Rukhsana Mahmood is dead, found horribly battered. But who would want to kill a kindly young woman whose job as a visiting care worker made her loved and respected? Detective Inspector John Handford is assigned to the case. Along with Detective Sergeant Khalid Ali, who faces hostility and jibes of tokenism, DI Handford begins to probe possible motives for wanting Rukhsana dead. Hers was a mixed marriage, and her husband Amajit’s family make no secret of their pleasure at her death. But is this a punishment killing? Or was pleasant, quiet Rukhsana Mahmood betraying more than one person?
