The Soft Detective
Publisher: Bloomsbury Reader
DCI Phil Benholme has the reputation for being soft because he tries to see both sides of every story.
When Professor Unwala, Nobel Prize winner of 1945, is found dead, Benholme must find the right questions to ask. Was it a tragic accident? Was he a victim of a violent burglary? Or of a racist assault by Britforce troopers? Or did he know something about the collection of Celtic coins thought to be buried nearby?
When all leads point to a member of his own family, what will the 'soft cop' do to enforce the concept of innocent until proven guilty?
