It’s 17 years after the Bradford riots in 2001 and ex BNP leader Lucas Dwight is released from prison. Mere days after, the biggest Asian festival in Bradford is set to take place and recently elected Muslim MP, Shakheel Ahmed is found murdered. Charged with the task of using his unique detective methods to find the killer, recently suspended Sikh DI Harry Virdee has 24 hours to traverse Bradford’s criminal underworld and figure out whether Dwight is the culprit or whether something far more sinister is at play before simmering racial tension threatens to tear the city apart once again.
As much a sociopolitical commentary as an exploration of a crime, STREETS OF DARKNESS based on author A.A Dhand's critically acclaimed crime thriller, vividly evokes the dark underworld of contemporary Bradford and sheds light on a relatively unknown landscape.
"A tense slice of neo-noir that has won Dhand comparisons to both BBC's 'Luther' and HBO's 'The Wire'." - The Observer review.
