Leila’s Shame
A story about an unlikely friendship across the cultural divide between a risk-taking Somali woman and a cautious undercover cop. They have more in common than they realise. When Kate sets out to gather evidence about a Somali drug-dealing ex con, she assumes the identity of an academic researching into the hidden Manchester Somali community. Her gateway in to the culture is Leila, a flippant, fun-loving young British Somali.
