Treading the fine line of the law and destined for the small screen, Harry Virdee is Bradford’s answer to Luther – this is the next in the explosive book-a-year series

'A story as fresh as today’s newspaper headlines — and all the more potent for being so' Mail on Sunday

Answering a routine call on the outskirts of the city, Detective Inspector Harry Virdee finds something he never thought he’d have to face – the cold body of his beloved niece.

He’s immediately banned from working the case, but there’s no way Harry can walk away while the monster who killed his flesh and blood is still walking the streets. But before he can find the killer, he must tell his brother, Ron, the terrible news.

Impulsive, dangerous and frighteningly well connected, Ron will act first and think later. Harry may have a murderer to find but if he isn't careful, he may also have a murder to prevent.

Reviews

Harry Virdee is one of the most multi-layered policemen to have appeared in recent years. Girl Zero is a story as fresh as today’s newspaper headlines — and all the more potent for being so . . . Fierce, fast-paced and vivid, it underlines just how good Dhand is .
