White Riot: A Joe Donovan Thriller

When the savagely beaten body of a Muslim student is discovered in a rundown area of Newcastle, blame falls on the far right National Unity Party - but for once they appear to be innocent. Not the best time for Trevor Whitman to return to his native north-east. Haunted by his violent past, Whitman is tormented by anonymous calls alluding to the murder of a policeman 30 years before.

Publisher's Summary

When the savagely beaten body of a Muslim student is discovered in a rundown area of Newcastle, blame falls on the far right National Unity Party - but for once they appear to be innocent. Not the best time for Trevor Whitman to return to his native north-east. Haunted by his violent past, Whitman is tormented by anonymous calls alluding to the murder of a policeman 30 years before.

Investigator Joe Donovan's team are called in to investigate. But, following the death of a supposed suicide bomber, what should be a routine investigation takes a more dangerous turn as the team find themselves the target of a ruthless killer. A killer who will do anything to ensure an explosive secret remains buried.

What the Critics Say

"White Riot is written in the sort of bovver-boots-and-dustbin-lids staccato prose that doesn't so much leap off the page as threaten to smack the reader in the mouth." (Guardian)
"Hard-hitting, socially-concerned crime of the highest caliber with the potential to emulate Mark Billingham." (Maxim Jakubowski, The Bookseller)

    "Brutal Brit Crime Fiction"

    This is my first audiobook by author and narrator Martyn Waites. Waites delivers a good story. His stage, screen and TV acting chops pays off in the narration department. A superior performance.
