DEATH IN DARK WATERS by PATRICIA HALL
The Carib Club is one of Bradfield's most popular night
clubs, especially in the local black community-but it's in
the heart of a Muslim district. Members of the local mosque
are keen to get the club closed down, so when, after a
night out clubbing, Jeremy Adams is knocked down by a taxi
and left in a coma, the pressure on the Carib Club starts
building. Jeremy had taken ecstasy tablets before the
accident happened and his father, wealthy local businessman
Grantley Adams, wants to know who supplied him with the
DCI Michael Thackeray is put on the case but when none of
the boy's friends seem willing to talk he finds himself
getting nowhere fast. Meanwhile Thackeray's girlfriend,
reporter Laura Ackroyd, is conducting her own investigation
into Bradfield's drugs problem. A young boy has died after
falling from a tower block on the Wuthering Heights housing
estate-the police are blaming the accident on a heroin
overdose, but his friends swear that he was clean.
A gripping and thought-provoking mystery, Death in Dark
Waters is the latest to feature Patricia Hall's acclaimed
Thackeray and Ackroyd, and is sure to please fans of this
always fascinating, intelligent series.
