Race to the Kill
Allison & Busby
Foreign rights controlled by:
Approaching the end of a long night shift, PC Sean Denton and his partner Gavin Wentworth are approached by a dishevelled-looking woman desperate that they follow her. She leads them to the old Chasebridge High School where they find the dead body of a Syrian refugee. The investigation which points to the neighbouring greyhound stadium finds Denton caught up in a world of immigration, drugs and sexual abuse, and one in which his private life becomes increasingly entwined.
'Cadbury had deeply held convictions about social justice ... In her fiction these translate into compelling stories that explore these themes, but are about people, and twist and turn to knit seamlessly together by the end. A Race to the Kill is an authentic and assured swansong.' York Press
