Publisher's Summary

If Luther was set in Bradford.... 

The government is firm, it does not negotiate with terrorists. But Detective Harry Virdee's wife has been taken hostage. He can see only one way out. 

Imminent security alert, leave city park immediately.

DCI Harry Virdee has just enough time to get his son and his mother to safety before the bomb blows. But this is merely a stunt; there is worse to come. 

A new and aggressive nationalist group, the Patriots, have hidden a second device under one of the city’s mosques. In exchange for the safe release of those at Friday prayers, the Patriots want custody of the leaders of radical Islamist group Almukhtareen - the chosen ones. 

The government does not negotiate with terrorists. Even when thousands of lives are at risk. 

But Harry’s wife is in one of those mosques. Left with no choice, Harry must find the Almukhtareen to offer the Patriots his own deal. Because sometimes the only way to save lives is to take them.

A bomb in Bradford's Milennium Park is just unthinkable, and then hundreds of people are trapped in mosques around the city after bomb threats! It sounds all too plausible, and A A Dhand has delivered another heart pounding crime thriller that I couldn't stop listening to, and the ending is completely chilling. I listened to all 4 books in this series in 4 days. Yes, they are that good!

This book has yet another different narrator. Such a shame they can't keep continuity of narrators for each book in the series. Still, Ash Tandon did a good job.

Another good listen!

Not as gripping as previous books, still enjoyable. I do like Harry Border though and his antics.
