A tough, gritty police procedural set in Leicester The discovery of a butchered pig deliberately left in a local mosque is the catalyst which ignites the simmering racial tension in inner-city Leicester into open warfare. As the police come under fire for their inappropriate response, and the violence starts to escalate, mixed-race Inspector Marjorie (Mo) Akanbai finds herself made into a convenient scapegoat. In addition to watching her painstaking community-relations police work go up in smoke and with her emotional life in crisis, Mo is faced with a terrified Serbian asylum seeker, the brutal murder of an Asian factory owner, a gang of white supremacists, a counterfeit CD scam and an unplanned pregnancy.
