Paperback / softback


FULLY REVISED NEW EDITIONPraise for Adrian Magson'... a classic crime star in the making' Daily Mail'A gripping police procedural' EurocrimeCaught between instinct and authority, Rocco must decide where his loyalties lie... Picardie, 1963. A truck drops a group of illegal workers by a deserted stretch of canal in the dead of night near Poissons-les-Marais.

Days later, one of them surfaces, stabbed to death. For Inspector Lucas Rocco, finding the victim's fellow travellers presents problems.

Most Algerian immigrants are welcome, but trawling for any who aren't is a sensitive issue loaded with threats of civil unrest, something which terrifies his bosses in the Ministry. And when Rocco is ordered to stay away from one factory, where he suspects illegals are being employed, it goes against everything he knows. An absolutely gripping historical crime thriller, for fans of Peter May and Stuart MacBride.
