Based in Corham, a town with Roman, medieval and industrial heritage, Paz and Rutherford investigate a murder at a brothel run by the Albanian mafia.

Carnal Acts explores abuse of many kinds sexual, psychological, economic taking the police procedural to places it has never been before.

Press Reviews

'[An] exciting, gritty thriller. . . Although lurid and graphic, the book is an enthralling tale, rather than an exploitative one.'
