‘I could never decide whether “Mad Annie” was murdered because she was mad or because she was black’

It is 1978 in London - the winter of discontent. Strikes are an everyday occurrence and the Ranelaghs’ neighbour, Mad Annie, is discovered dying in the gutter, almost obscured by piles of rubbish.

The other residents of Graham Road do little to disguise their satisfaction at her death and in this environment of growing racial and class unrest, M. Ranelagh, the narrator, takes up a solitary, and dangerously unpopular, defence against the vilification of Mad Annie. So dangerous that M. and her husband Sam flee the poisonous climate of England.

Twenty years later, they return from overseas and M. now begins acting on her secretly and painstakingly collected research to piece together what really happened.

But is it justice for Annie’s murder she’s after or is it revenge for something very different?
