Synopsis

A Dark Redemption by Stav (Literary Editor) Sherez

A Dark Redemption introduces DI Jack Carrigan and DS Geneva Miller as they investigate the brutal rape and murder of a young Ugandan student. Plunged into an underworld of illegal immigrant communities, they discover that the murdered girl's studies at a London College may have threatened to reveal things that some people will go to any lengths to keep secret... Unflinching, inventive and intelligent, A Dark Redemption explores a sinister case that will force DI Carrigan to face up to his past and DS Miller to confront what path she wants her future to follow.

Reviews

A superior novel, well written and plotted, with a convincing backdrop about a continent that rarely features in crime fiction. --Marcel Berlins, THE TIMES Fast paced and slick, this is the first in what could well be an outstanding series. --Laura Wilson, GUARDIAN A Dark Redemption is a clever, multi-layered beginning to a promising new series . . . Sherez does a masterful job with a particularity haunting plot. --Henry Sutton, (Book of the Week) The Daily Mirror

This intriguing and well-written thriller is highly original . . . Sherez ventures into a part of London that crime fiction readers probably never see. A salutary read, highly recommended. --Jessica Mann, Literary Review
