Product description


A timely thriller about devious politicians, tensions in the Met and anger on the streets . . . Gillian Slovo has demonstrated a knack for doing what few other writers are doing right now: tackling the world we live in head on -- LOUISE DOUGHTY ― * Guardian *

A page-turner intent on keeping you avidly on edge into the small hours ― * Metro *

An extraordinary novel - a page-turner thick with greed, ambition, love and secrets, and simultaneously an incisive portrayal of power and powerlessness in today's Britain -- KAMILA SHAMSIE

A vivid portrait of the realities of power in Britain ― * Daily Mail *

Ten days of tension, trouble and tough truths . . a cracker ― * VAL MCDERMID *

Ten Days tackles the dangers we all face when politics and policing collide. The result: an unputdownable Slovo read -- SHAMI CHAKRABARTI

The drama is provided by Slovo's eye for detail - she seeks out the exact wrong decisions and blunders that led to the biggest policing-meltdown in the city's history . . . Slovo captures the anger, fear and tension ― * The Times *
