City of Strangers

Wynton Lane, with its imposing Victorian houses, is a bastion of respectability.  Belfield Grove Estate is not.  Belfield Grove harbours families like the infamous Phelans.  Led by their foul-mouthed, beer-swilling patriarch, Jack, theyve dabbled in everything from prostitution to racial violence.  Now someone has struck back – with a firebomb.  Who killed Jack Phelan?  Almost everyone has a motive.  But the case soon reveals a startling truth: among the horrific Phelans there is a bit more good than anyone might have suspected.  And as for the upstanding citizens of Wynton Lane – murder is but one of their crimes.
