Odd Child Out (Jim Clemo #2) Read Online Free - How well do you know the people you love…?
Best friends Noah Sandler and Abdi Mahad have always been inseparable. But when Noah is found floating unconscious in Bristol's Feeder Canal, Abdi can't--or won't--tell anyone what happened.
Just back from a mandatory leave following his last case, Detective Jim Clemo is now assigned to look into this unfortunate accident. But tragedy strikes and what looked like the simple case of a prank gone wrong soon ignites into a public battle. Noah is British. Abdi is a Somali refugee. And social tensions have been rising rapidly in Bristol. Against this background of fear and fury two families fight for their sons and for the truth. Neither of them know how far they will have to go, what demons they will have to face, what pain they will have to suffer.
Because the truth hurts.

4.5 stars, rounded up
This is not your standard mystery. Among other things, it deals with racism and discrimination, exclusion and privilege, not to mention rabid dog journalism, making it all seem especially current. It’s really more of a character study and a very well done one at that.
