A serial-killer is picking off the England cricket team, and in Brixton, a vigilante group is hanging dope dealers from lampposts. Chief Inspector Roberts and Detective Sergeant Brant, two tough, corrupt cops, are out to clean up the streets.'
From the Publisher
The first in the ground-breaking 'White Trilogy'
"'A White Arrest' pits a double act of corrupt cops against serial killer The Umpire, who is gradually picking off the England cricket squad. DS Brant is a fat, obnoxious enforcer with a bitter sense of humour and everyone in his South London manor serving his needs. CI Roberts really can't be bothered any more, but the Commissioner's on his back. Both need a 'white arrest' to stop their careers from hitting the skids, but, as the plot grows stickier, it becomes evident that neither are going to get off lightly." - BizArre magazine
"An absolutely cracking read, it rolls along bretahlessly, inviting you to grab on tight and enjoy the ride. This is a fine novel that just happens to be a crime novel." - Time Out
"With his latest, theb stunning, fast moving. 'A White Arrest', he has once again shown himself to be a master of plot, pacing, and character... 'Books In Ireland' once declared, 'If Martin Amis was writing crime novels, this is what he would hope to write'. But he wouldn't be able, let's be honest.' - Galway Advertiser.
