From the publisher

In the 1980s, London is a melting pot of cultures, but race and class create sharp divisions.

Black British journalist Sam Dean looks for stories, not missing persons.

When and old friend asks for help tracking down a White Conservative MP’s daughter, he feels he can’t say no. Virginia’s disappearance is tangled with the fate of Roy, a young mixed-race boy who reminds Sam of his own son, and Sam becomes determined to find the truth.

A trail of secrets leads Sam into backstreets of Black British culture, to the crossroads of race and class where you’ll find seedy walk-up flats, betting parlors, and smoky nightclubs.

London’s answer to S.A. Cosby, Blood Rights is a riveting time capsule of London’s multi-cultural history wrapped up in a tense thriller.
