Barbara Nadel - A Private Business

A new crime series from Barbara Nadel, author of the acclaimed Ikmen series

Former cop PI Lee Arnold and his Muslim assistant Mumtaz Hakim run a detective agency in a community fraught with conflict and tension. It is London 2012 and Stratford in the East End is at the center of the world; but next to the Olympic Park are some of the poorest and most crime-ridden streets in the city. Approached by a terrified woman, Arnold and Hakim start to investigate her fears that someone is following her. But what they discover turns the inquiry in an even more sinister direction.
