One Good Reason

(The first book in the DS Ashcroft series)
A novel by

A double-murder.
Two warring gangs.
A location known as No Man’s Land.
Meet DS Chris Ashcroft, murder detective. He’s diligent, ambitious, and Black. Top Brass take advantage of that when they assign him to an investigation in an area simmering with racial tension and police mistrust.
‘We don’t want this turning into something it isn’t,’ claims his Chief Super.
It’s clear that he's been brought in because of his ethnicity, rather than his ability - the very reason he left The Met and moved to Greater Manchester Police five years before. As he starts to investigate the double shooting of a young couple on the outskirts of a notorious estate, he realises there's much more to the murder than his colleagues first thought. Is it possible the brutal killing of a child on a neighbouring estate six weeks earlier is connected?
If so, he must track down those responsible quickly to stop the reprisals that will surely follow.

A plot simmering with tension, perfect for those who enjoyed DI Ray, Top Boy and The Wire.
