Di Stratton, Fiction, Crime & mystery

In the heat of summer, 1958, tensions are escalating in DI Stratton's new manor of Notting Hill, as a murder exposes society's divisions.

1958: Notting Hill is sweltering in a heatwave. It's DI Stratton's new manor and a powder keg of racial tension. A rent collector is stabbed and a series of street fights between teddy boys and Caribbean immigrants sparks further unrest.

Young runaway Irene, on the verge of prostitution, finds her loyalties lie on both sides of the fight. A race riot breaks out - the worst Britain has ever seen.

Stratton must tread a path through the violence and prejudice to find the killer and save Irene before Notting Hill explodes.
