Product Description

Review

Sherez's novels are strikingly modern and infused with a passionate belief in justice. (Joan Smith Sunday Times)

I'll admit to having high expectations after reading A Dark Redemption and Eleven Days has only cemented my opinion that Stav Sherez belongs in the top league of British crime writers. This is a clever, compelling book, dark without being gratuitous and Sherez's evocative portrayal of London is second to none. (Eva Dolan http://loiteringwithintent.wordpress.com/)

Brimming with suspense this thriller will keep you up reading into the early hours. (Hannah Britt Daily Express)

Addictive. He invests the proceedings with a fast paced readability. (Christopher Fowler Financial Times)

Book Description

In the second of his acclaimed Carrigan and Miller Police procedural series, Stav Sherez conjures up a terrifying mystery.

Once again I found myself diving into a "second in series" book by an author I was already extremely fond of. The first book in the "Carrigan and Miller" series, A Dark Redemption, was excellent and I was not far into this one before I realised that, if anything, it was even better. This time we find our protagonists investigating arson at a convent in which eleven nuns die...except there were only ten nuns in residence. With Eleven days to go until Christmas, the powers that be are keen for a resolution to this case... So begins a mystery that is deeper than it first appears and takes us on a journey across time and continents until the final,very jaw dropping (in the best way possible - I didnt see it coming and there was I thinking I was clever...) solution. Once again Mr Sherez creates characters you can believe in. Both Carrigan and Miller grow in stature and the supporting cast are all important to the story and well drawn. The background, of evil acts in South America, The Shining Path and all the political shenanigans is brilliant - extremely realistic, I imagine that a fair bit of research was involved in making it authentic. Its also a terrific social comment on what may be happening in our own back yard that we all turn a blind eye to - some of the story was very emotive and isnt it great when a book can make you feel something as well as entertain you? I have to say I was pleased to be reading this on the Kindle - I'm fairly sure I would be covered in paper cuts by now otherwise in my eagerness to turn pages...so all in all a great sequel, a great book and if you havent met up with Carrigan and Millar before, head back towards a Dark Redemption and I'm fairly sure it will then be less than Eleven Days before you are reading Eleven Days. Wonderful.

A Dark Redemption, the first book in the Carrigan and Miller series was the book of 2012 for me, a politically astute and truly unsettling work, written in some of the most beautiful prose you could hope to find in the crime genre, but the real hook was how Sherez leads the reader into London's secret corners, unearthing the communities less seen and their dark, complicated histories. Now Sherez is back with Eleven Days and once again we're taken off the beaten track with a story which will make you look at the city afresh.

With Christmas approaching and snow blanketing the city Carrigan and Miller are called to a fire on a affluent west London square. Hidden among the houses, the centre of the blaze is tiny convent home to the Sisters of Suffering. Records show that ten nuns were in residence at the time of the fire and once the smoke settles the search team discovers their corpses around the dining table in a room locked from inside. But then an eleventh body is found, trapped in a confessional in the basement, and this person hasn't gone to their death quite as passively.

Aware of the potential media interest across the dead time of the holidays Carrigan's boss pushes for a PR friendly result, any suspect will do as long as it doesn't reflect badly on the church, but as they delve into the history of the order and the sisters' community outreach work, which is far from universally popular, they begin to suspect that the case is more complicated than a random arson. A suspicion which solidifies when they crash into a wall of perfectly polite resistance from the diocese, who are reluctant to have church business made public. But surely they wouldn't kill over it.

I really enjoyed this, and I am not normally a reader of crime novels. It was very much a punt, just for something different.

The author writes in a style that was brisk, making it possible for me to steam through the pages much faster than I often read. Importantly it kept me interested throughout.

What surprised me is sometimes how the book caught me off guard. The characters I didn't find overly interesting or multi-layered, but then one was in peril and all of a sudden I found myself racing through the text with concern. A couple of twists made me really feel for characters. So I was clearly more involved than I had given the book credit for.

For me the outcome was quite predictable... although was still a surprise. Let me explain the contradiction. I had guessed right, at least to a large part of the story, early on. But in like a magician the author had a good art of distraction, distracting me to the point where I had concluded I was wrong or just plain forgot my theory. The outcome thus did seem a bit a bit obvious to me when it came, but I never felt cheated. You can lie to and work against a reader, or you can take them along for a fun ride and trick them as a good magician does. The author definitely did the latter.

There were a few story issues for me. "Eleven Days" the title I felt was going to have much more relevance than it did, and it set expectations. The nuns staying where they were to me makes no sense even after reading the book. If the nuns had shown signs of struggle and panic I think the story would still have been just as good but it would have been more realistic. And towards the end of the book it became exposition heavy.
A couple of minor grumbles too. The overused way of ending each chapter on a cliffhanger.
