Poisoned Ground

Ex-soldier Lee Arnold and his Muslim assistant Mumtaz Hakim run a detective agency in London’s ethnically diverse, crime-ridden East End.

Mumtaz is approached by an Egyptian woman, Salwa, whose husband is in Belmarsh prison on terrorism charges.

Salwa convinces Mumtaz of her husband’s innocence and persuades her to go undercover to prove it. But Salwa is not what she seems.

Trapped in an old tunnel that leads to the London docks, will Mumtaz escape with her life?

The plot is intricate and keeps you guessing until thevery last minute . . . This series has brilliantly established itself and this latest is another masterpiece from Barbara Nadel. Long may it continue!

There's no shortage of crime fiction set in London yet it's not often it's of a standard as high as this. Definitely not one to miss
Bookaddict Shaun
An intelligent crime novel that explores the fractures that can occur in a multi-cultural, multi-religious community... Well written and thoughtful, this is a powerful novel that addresses serious issues and also provides some good thrills
