About Murder at the Mela
Alok Patel is thrown in at the deep end as newly promoted DI with his first investigation, when an Asian woman is brutally murdered at Glasgow’s Mela Festival. Facing prejudice from his work colleagues and suspicion from the Asian community, Patel struggles to balance the pressures of his rank, relationships, and racism.
