Minds That Hate
Everyone knew Gary Vickers was guilty - the evidence was overwhelming. Convicted of the rape and murder of his lover's daughter, he is now due for release from prison. Against all advice, he insists on returning to Helmsdale, where it falls upon Mike Nash to protect him. But Nash has other, more pressing worries... With extremist politicians fanning racial hatred and provoking attacks on migrant workers, Nash has to prevent an explosive situation from boiling over into civil unrest. During such fraught times, Nash's small team of detectives has little time to spare for convicted sex attacker Vickers. But as Nash becomes acquainted with the facts, doubts start to grow about Vickers' conviction. Proving him innocent will be difficult enough... but keeping him alive until they find the truth may well be impossible.
