This is the first book in a new series featuring DI Zigic and DS Ferreira who work together on the Hate Crimes Unit in Peterborough.

Peterborough has seen an influx of immigration and Dolan has tackled this issue and its impact on both the immigrants and the local people head on. It is an interesting and topical subject which is handled sensitively and realistically, highlighting the prejudice against immigrants and also the terrible conditions they work and live in. Long Way Home is a great combination of a emotive subject and a gripping detective thriller, Zigic and Ferreira are a wonderful combination - they are like chalk and cheese that completely works!

This is a brilliant debut, Zigic and Ferreira are well-rounded and developed characters, having both a relevant back story to explain their commitment to the Hate Crimes Unit and those members of the public they serve, they have empathy with the victims from shared experiences. Also, Long Way Home is well plotted out, building tension through the narrative and the fractious relationship between the locals and the immigrants. It keeps the reader guessing through to the end of the book and I look forward to reading Tell No Tales.

I purchased this book almost 12 months ago and after reading it, I am kicking myself for waiting so long! The cover is stunning, the story is captivating and the characters are …well….pretty damn awesome! If that isn’t the recipe for a perfect read, I don’t know what is!

Set in Peterborough, the themes of racism, immigration, politics, loss, love and betrayal can be found – although they are not all that we find in the pages of this story.

For me, the pace was set perfectly! Thrusting you full throttle into the story with a great build up and then evening out until you are again grabbed by the throat with a fantastic reveal. I found myself questioning everything, thinking #DIHolten has solved the case before the book even ended – boy was I wrong!! That is what I loved about this book ~ all is not what it seems!

DI Zigic and DS Ferreira (how great are those names!!) are the two main characters from the Hate Crimes Unit. What a pair these two are! I freakin’ LOVED the way they bounced off each other! I also enjoyed the fact that the author shares some insight to what this pair are like outside “the job” ~ leaving us guessing and wanting more!

This is a no holds barred, straight-talking story about immigrants coming to the UK and what they have to face in Peterborough. I felt all the chracters had depth and a realism that is often hard to find when talking about such a fiery, divisive topic.

For a debut novel, this was a corker! I am somewhat glad that I still have two more to read and cannot wait to get stuck in. If you want a gritty, gripping page-turner to get stuck into, I highly recommend you check out Eva Dolan as this book kicks a**!

Not for me, never found myself itching to read "just one more page". The Ferreira character is unlikeable for a main character you need to like

Wow! What a stunning debut novel. I can't wait for the second in the series to get to know Zigic and Ferreira better. They head up Peterborough's Hate Crimes Unit and this story centres around a man found burned alive in a garden shed. All is not what it first seems. The novel focuses on Peterborough's immigrant community made up largely of Eastern Europeans who have come to the UK with promises of work and good wages. For many this isn't the case and as the investigation moves on, Zigic and Ferreira discover a host of migrant workers who are being kept as slaves. If any of the victims protest at their treatment, their punishment is death. This is a political novel, yet still pacy and enjoyable. Eva Dolan's writing is gritty, edgy and takes us to a place we never thought we'd go. Do such things go on in modern day Britain? Sadly, the answer is yes.

By Lincs Reader TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 27 Oct. 2014
Format: Paperback
This is a bleak, violent, no-holds-barred crime novel that is exposes the darker side of the issue of migrant workers and their gang masters in the fens around Peterborough.

DI Zigic and DS Ferreira work on the Hate Crime Unit and when a man is burnt alive in a garden shed, their investigations reveal a complex and incredibly violent underworld in a fairly run-down and deprived Peterborough. Both of these Police Officers are from ethnic minority backgrounds, a fact that helps and sometimes hinders their investigations.

Be prepared for some pretty full-on, explicit scenes of cruelty and suffering in Long Way Home, but also be prepared for an extremely well written crime story that explores issues that many of us are unaware of. Eva Dolan writes with authenticity, her descriptive prose is excellent and her two main characters are very well formed. Zigic and Ferreira are complex characters, each with their own complications and distinct story, so different to each other, yet the perfect partners for investigation crime and getting to the bottom of things.

Eva Dolan, Zigic and Ferreira are welcome additions to the world of the police procedure series; new and exciting, great writing, fast moving plot and exploring a theme that has rarely been written about in fiction. This is gritty and real, often uncomfortable, sometimes shocking, but very impressive.
