The Riot

(2013)
(The fifth book in the DI Ted Stratton series)
A novel by

 
 
August 1958. DI Stratton has just been posted to Notting Hill. Stratton's new manor is rife with racial tension. The end of the war saw a flood of Caribbean migrants. Now, a decade later, working-class Teddy Boys are showing mounting hostility towards their black neighbours.

Notorious landlord Danny Perlmann, a Polish refugee, is taking full advantage and is making a fortune off the high rents he charges. Caught in the middle of this war over rents and turf is Irene, a young runaway on the verge of going on the game. When Perlmann's rent collector is murdered, Stratton is called to investigate.

Notting Hill is a cauldron, and Stratton is right at the heart of it.
