Murder, fundamentalism, intrigue - and that's just the start of Babel, Maitland's gripping sixth Brock + Kolla mystery.;

Professor Springer, one of Britain's leading philosophers, is brutally murdered on the steps of a London university. He was well-known for his stand against fundamentalism, but was that reason enough to kill him? Detective Chief Inspector David Brock and Detective Sergeant Kathy Kolla start looking for answers in London's Arab communities, but perhaps Springer's enemy can be found closer to home. As suspicions fall on the factions within the university, Springer's colleague, the Professor of Genetics, becomes involved. Is he as dangerous and unethical as he seems?

Brock and Kolla must work closer than ever before, sifting through the clues to find the real killer before further violence erupts.
