Chief Inspector Jacobson hates drug-related cases. Not least because it means he has to work with the drug squad. But there's no alternative when a local dealer turns up burnt, battered and dead. Just another hopeless, pointless sink estate incident in the middle of a grey, Crowby February. But even so Dave Carter's torched body is the stuff of bad dreams. Death doesn't get any grimmer, Jacobson thinks. But that's because Jacobson, DS Kerr and Crowby CID are still forty-eight hours away from the 'Perfect Family' killings ... five dead in a leafy suburb where bad things aren't supposed to happen. And the only witness may never speak again.

Iain McDowall

Iain McDowall is a British crime fiction author. He has written seven novels in his Crowby series, featuring the present-day investigations of Inspector Jacobson and his team of provincial police detectives.

The Crowby novels broadly follow the conventions of the police procedural but they are distinguished by an unusual narrative emphasis on the point of view of their non-police protagonists. McDowall’s books are frequently concerned with controversial social and political themes. Since 2007, his books, in translation, have also achieved success in Germany.
