Deadly Sacrifice brings us the first Black female police detective in UK fiction

A unique thriller that dives deep into the world of human trafficking and African ritual sacrifices, Deadly Sacrifice is based on the true 2001 news story in which a Black boy's torso was found in the Thames. Published as part of Jacaranda’s pioneering Twenty in 2020 series, Stella Oni’s debut novel joins a number of other groundbreaking titles in making real space for Black British stories.
