A Dark Redemption - Stav Sherez

One of the nicest peeps in crime fiction has a new book out. Go buy it.

My review is over at CRIMESQUAD

and here's a wee taster ...

The flavours that Sherez adds to the novel are many and varied with his keen observations about his characters’ interactions, a side of London you rarely see in crime fiction and an African history that Carrigan is desperate to forget. All of this has a ring of authenticity that draws you in and holds your attention captive throughout.

Meanwhile, proving that he can plot with the best of them, Sherez adds a twist at the end that will have you shivering. A Dark Redemption is classy, captivating and worth every penny I’m about to urge you to spend on it.  


  1. Hi alex - I have a QnA with Stav where he explains his motivation for such a blend. Will be posting that shortly.

  2. Sounds really good. Also, that title is full of shivery foreboding...

  3. I remember when you wrote about this author before, maybe you were at a conference with him? I've been waiting to see his book. I'll check it out.

  4. Yeah, exactly, LG - shivery foreboding.

    Livia, I met Stav at Harrogate Crime Writing Festival last year. A thoroughly nice man and a fine writer.

  5. I'm reading it at the moment Michael. It's a great book and I loved his first book too.

  6. I just bought The Devil's Playground, Sarah. The man is quality, eh.
