Dirty Weekend

By Alan Scholefield

An Easter weekend in cold, misty London. A man is found stabbed to death.

Most of the inhabitants are spending a quiet few days with family and friends. But under Hungerford Bridge, where the homeless sleep, the body of a well-known television personality is found murdered.

Terry Collins, a young street kid, is running away from the murder, with blood still on his hands; two others are so running – towards it and its consequences.

There is Jack Benson, a shady businessman, who, with the wisdom of panic, is running for his life from the Triads in Hong Kong. And Maria Dunlap who, with the wisdom of self-betrayal, is running from what she believes is a broken marriage.

All their lives are going to merge. They will never be the same again, and murder is the catalyst.

This contemporary, hard-edged mystery is the first in the series featuring Detective Superintendent George Macrae and Detective Sergeant Leopold Silver of London’s Cannon Row police station.

Alan Scholefield is South African by birth but came to England in 1961 where he has lived ever since. By training as a journalist, he has been a full-time novelist since the early seventies. Three of his novels have been made into films, including the award-winning Venom. He also writes under the pseudonym of Lee Jordan.
