A Time to KillWhen the past comes When Detective Nick Jellicoe is posted from the London Met to a quiet seaside town he is quickly called upon to investigate a murder and a kidnapping.

The Bus StopYou can escape anything except the colour of your skinThe body of a woman is found near a remote bus stop. The finger of blame points towards the bus driver, Chester Johnson. The victim is a family friend of British far-right activist, Oswald Moseley while Johnson is a black American ex-serviceman. Racial tension mounts as DI Nick Jellicoe investigates a murder where all is not as it seems.

Trio Two murders and a spate of jewel robberies mean that DI Jellicoe and Chief Inspector Burnett have their hands full. A National Serviceman is killed while attempting to escape from his army camp. One night later, American band leader, Desi Denby, plays his last 'Do Wap' and waltzes off to that great dance hall in the sky. Is there a connection between the two deaths? Prejudice, jealousy, McCarthy witchunts and Foxtrots come crashing together as Jellicoe and young DC Wallace investigate while, all the time, dealing with the demons of their past.
