Darkness Rising



Dhand takes us back to the beginning of Harry Virdee's story in this short story for Quick Reads 2020. A thrilling read.

'One of the most multi-layered policemen to have appeared in recent years.' - Mail on Sunday

Detective Inspector Harry Virdee has a lot on his plate. His team is facing government cuts, tensions are building between Bradford’s two rival drugs gangs and his wife Saima is due to give birth any day now.

So when bodies start turning up in the old industrial district, the pressure is on to get the case wrapped up as quickly as possible, or risk a full-scale gang war.

But the man behind the murders is ruthless and pushy. And things are getting personal. Harry must think fast and bend the rules if he wants to keep his city, and his family, safe . . .
