A deeply involving book, although I can't say I really enjoyed it. It was grim, messy, gritty and felt very realistic. Could you say you wanted to know any of the characters? Maybe not, but if you did, you know you've met a character.
The story starts with Anna, a new sergeant in charge of a bolshy team, including an ex-lover. She gets off on the wrong foot with them all except Jamie, too posh, too ambitious, too aloof to fit in. Prostitutes on the Drag are being attacked and having their faces slashed, adn in a tenement, an elderly Polish WWII veteran is killed. Jamie's wife Cath, ex-police herself, and suffering from post natal depression is drawn into the story after bumping into Anna and finding that actually, they don't hate each other.
No-one is white and no-one is black; everyone has some sympathetic and some offputting characteristics.

I think it's a book I will remember for quite some time. ( )
