"Kester Aspden's brave book finally puts the life and death of David Oluwale where it always should have been: centre-stage in the criminal, political and social history of postwar England" (David Peace)

"This is a shocking and engrossing story... A true story with all the material of a novel, the book is a kind of In Cold Blood set in Leeds" (Jonathan Sale Financial Times)

"Aspden's painstaking research, empathetic approach and ability to weave together a vivid wider social critique show Oluwale was done a terrible disservice... This tenderly compiled book will still make you weep" (Metro)

"Aspden writes compassionately of his character, weaving information into a gripping narrative and attempting, with a novelist's skill, to give a heartbeat to the dry statistics on his life" (Independent)

"Aspden's meticulous work does justice to a largely forgotten case" (New Statesman)

Book Description:

An extraordinary 'micro-history' which exposes the beginnings of institutionalised police racism in Britain.
