Caroline Goode
Honour: Achieving Justice for Banaz Mahmod
shortlisted

Striking and very readable, Caroline Goode’s account of how she and her police team brought the ‘honour’ killers of Banaz Mahmoud to justice is an important book. The sheer persistence and dedication of the police – though the author isn’t afraid to blame her colleagues where necessary – come through, as does her affection and respect for the dead girl she never knew.
