Blood At The Root

Detective Chief Inspector Alan Banks is ordered to run an investigation from his desk without further incident--or find himself on traffic duty. Soon he's outside the investigation and his own department while his own 20-year marriage crumbles around him. On his own, he discovers he's following a trail whose end may lead to his own destruction.

Hatred and murder breed in dark places ...

In the long shadows of an alley a young man is murdered, savagely kicked and beaten to death by assailant or assailants unknown. It is a crime shocking in its raw brutality, and its shattering repercussions will be felt throughout a small provincial community on the edge -- because the victim was far from innocent, a youth whose sordid secret life was a tangle of terrifying contradictions and virulent racial hatred. And now a dedicated policeman beset by his own tormenting demons must follow the leads into the rankest pits of man's inhumanity to man -- to catch a killer before his village explodes.
