Summary

Random House presents the audiobook edition of City of Sinners by A. A. Dhand, read by Ramon Tikaram.

It is an ordinary Yorkshire morning, cold and miserable. 

The streets are not yet busy. Police cars hurriedly pull up in the centre of town, but none of their lights are flashing and the sirens are silent.

A body has been found, elaborately and painstakingly positioned to send a message. But what message? And to whom?

It’s DCI Harry Virdee’s job to find out. But Harry doesn’t know that the killer is watching him, that the killer is coming for him.

Because this is personal.

A DI Harry Virdee Thriller.

What line wouldn't you cross?

This is the first in the series I have listened to but I will be going back to the beginning. Bradford like many old cities born out of the industrial revolution has both historic beauty and roads if at all possible you don't turn down. Here is where I got to meet DCI Harry Virdee a stalwart of the city, fighting to keep his city together and hoping for a renaissance. This tale takes in the difficulties of modern multicultural societies and this not the simple black versus white which leads to the deaths of four Asian women and has links with Harry's own personal history. Ramon Tikram was the appropriate narrator for this gritty tale that hold's your attention from the off.

A fitting conclusion to an intriguing trilogy

I read book one in paperback and heard book two on Audible. Book three is a continuation of the imaginary story of racial 'issues', policing and organised crime in the city of Bradford. All three books are irresistible page-turners and book three ends with the suggestion of a possible career change for the main protagonists - I really hope that the author manages to find a brand new platform for his undoubted talent.

In my opinion, the narrator of book three was too technically perfect and lacked the rawness of book two.
