Reporter Rex Tracey has just recovered from his affair with Lithuanian artist Milda Majauskas when she disappears. He’s got other concerns, not least an anti-immigration group spreading hate across his beloved Tottenham and a string of attacks on young women at the local beauty spot, Alexandra Palace.
But when Rex himself becomes a suspect, he is forced to seek answers amongst the teahouses and tower blocks of this little-glimpsed, ever-changing quarter of London.

"With an appealing protagonist, a cast of vivid characters and a powerful sense of place, this is an excellent crime novel as well as a sharply observed slice of contemporary London life - and the good news is that it promises to be the first in a series." (Guardian)
"M. H. Baylis introduces the London borough of Tottenham to crime fiction, and it performs extremely well...fast-moving, committed and very entertaining." (The Times)
"A sparky, unexpected thriller...His delicate sense of place gives Baylis a special authenticity, which - when you add neat characterisation and plotting - make him a crime writer to watch." (Daily Mail)
"A richly enjoyable novel, working as both a satisfyingly plotted crime thriller, and a love letter to an often-overlooked corner of London." (Independent)
