UP IN FLAMES

#1 IN THE CASEY & CATT BRITISH POLICE PROCEDURAL SERIES

'Well-researched. Intriguing plot. Good pace. Excellent characterisation and wry humour makes this a very enjoyable read. Highly recommended.' MYSTERY WOMEN

Fancy some light relief after yet another serial killer book about the unspeakable doings of the latest sadist? Then UP IN FLAMES, No.1 in the Casey & Catt procedural series, should do it. Up in Flames, is a Cozy Procedural, that has as much to do with family relationships as it has to do with crime.

If you enjoy some humour with your murders, you'll likely love this British detective series.

When Chandra Bansi and her baby, Leela, are burned to death, DCI ‘Will’ Casey and his less than politically-correct sergeant, Thomas Catt, rapidly come under pressure from their superintendent to put a couple of skinhead thugs behind bars for arson.

Superintendent Brown-Smith, acutely aware, after the fiasco that was the failed inquiry into the murder of black, south London, teenager, Stephen Lawrence, that he is in the hot seat, is desperate for a speedy and politically-satisfactory solution to the case. Worried that his previously smooth and upward career progression will be irretrievably damaged, he places additional pressure on Casey.

But the investigation quickly unearths suspects other than the skinheads, suspects unlikely to endear him either to his superiors or the Asian community.

The resolution of the most difficult case of his career is not eased by the arrival of his impecunious hippie parents. Urgently in need of a temporary home, they selfishly concluded that decamping to Casey's peaceful haven will provide the solution to their current difficulties.

But their raucous, undisciplined lifestyle causes Casey sleepless nights at a time he most needs calm. Bedevilled at home by his irresponsible parents, bedevilled at work by accusations of discrimination from the usual quarters, Casey and ThomCatt must wend a circuitous path through all the additional problems the investigation throws up.

For instance, just how respectable is Chandra’s businessman father? And what about her in-laws, who seem to have blamed their westernised daughter-in-law for the death of their only son? Other members of the victim's family also come under suspicion. Casey must use the utmost sensitivity in his handling of the case if he is not to cause unrest in the Asian community.

And, at the heart of the case is the fact that Chandra, a modern young woman, had been uncomfortably caught between two cultures. It’s hard to say which is the more dangerous.

For lovers of cozy mysteries and procedurals
