The murder of black teenager Stephen Lawrence by a gang of white youths at a bus-stop in south London, and the failure to bring anyone to justice for the crime, outraged the country. In this book Brian Cathcart decribes in detail what happened on the night,and follows step-by-step the police investigation. The result is a riveting and disturbing account of the criminal culture of south-east London, and the workings of the London police.

From the Publisher:

Press reviews of the book
"As involving as any thriller, and rather more educational. Cathcart writes a sparse, tight prose, and takes the reader through the long narrative of assault, police incompetence, half-hearted internal ‘inquiries’ and public outcry with great tact." - Financial Times.

"One of the few genuinely informative accounts... An enthralling book which is the definitive history of the case so far... Eradicating (racism) will be a long and painful process. Brian Cathcart’s book will be a constant and unanswerable reminder to those responsible of the need to purse their task with determination and vigour. - Ham and High

From the Author:

A tragic story that needed to be told.
I wrote this book partly to tell the tragic, powerful and moving story of a race murder and of how a black London family, let down by the system, eventually forced the whole country to sit up and take notice. I also wrote it in the hope of informing the very important debate that has followed about race, policing and society in Britain. The Lawrence story is long and complex and the crime remains on the unsolved list, but despite all the controversy people still know little of what happened. I hope the book will help to fill the information gap.
