Description

On the beach, west of Kings Lynn - a dog discovers the shallow graves of 'eight bodies, all male, all young, all identifying papers removed'. All had suffocated to death and been hastily dragged through the mud to their temporary graves. An unfortunate fate for the asylum seekers identified by their clothing as originating from the former Yugoslavia. Jules Carlisle of Paul Jenkins Solicitors takes on the case of Minko Dragunovic, an illegal immigrant who arrives in great distress claiming his brother is one of the eight found dead. Minko absconded on a Home Office scheme while being hired as cheap labour on a farm in Norfolk. Reluctant to give personal details due to his illegal citizen status - Minko has knowledge of the human traffic operation that was bringing his brother to the UK. Torn between helping this man who defected for love, and following the correct procedure in keeping with MI5, Jules is thrown into a case that leaves her feeling out of her depth.show more
