'Highly recommended. Crime Writing at its very best' - Kate Rhodes on The Last Straw, book 1 in the DCI Warren Jones series How do you catch a man's killer when everyone wanted him dead? In Middlesbury, a rally is being held by the British Allegiance Party - a far-right group protesting against the opening of a new Mosque. When the crowd disperses, a body is found in an alleyway.

Tommy Meegan, the loud-mouthed leader of the group, has been stabbed through the heart. Across town, a Muslim community centre catches fire in a clear act of arson, leaving a small child in a critical condition. And the tension which has been building in the town for years boils over. DCI Warren Jones knows he can't afford to take sides - and must solve both cases before further acts of violent revenge take place.

But, in a town at war with itself, and investigating the brutal killing of one of the country's most-hated men, where does he begin?
