"a solid and well-constructed police procedural"

When family-run Greenaway Engineering is sold, the employees are told their jobs will be safe; but the new owners immediately close the factory, leaving the workers to an uncertain future, and the former owner Marcus Greenaway dies in a helicopter crash soon afterwards. Five years later, student journalist Jordan Radley persuades the redundant men to discuss their mental health problems for an article. When he is murdered, and his laptop and notes stolen, Zigic and Ferreira begin to suspect that it may contain research on Greenaway’s apparently accidental death. Dolan takes aim at unregulated capitalism in a solid and well-constructed police procedural that is well up to the high standard of previous titles.
