Book of the Week, Hood Rat Episode 2 of 5

Written by Gavin Knight. The reader is Siobhan Redmond.

There is anger and a sense of urgency when four young men are murdered in South London in a single weekend. But that level of crime is normal for Glasgow and instead of anger the reaction is indifference and acceptance. Karyn McCluskey and her colleague John Carnochan are determined to find a way to break the cycle of violence.
