AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Zandra Lee joins the police. But her family, old schoolmates and even Eric her ex-boyfriend are anti police. Zandra suffers, too, from being called a 'Chink connie' and from worrying that the next 'fatal' might be someone she knows. A 'bad' shooting and a suspected drug dealing that may involve her friend make her wonder whether she should stay ...' (Source: Back cover)
