A dark, disgusting, disquieting tale. -- Literary Review
A scorching read ... A bloody literary mystery (very bloody at times) set among the Greek Islands with not one but two writers embroiled in murky religious goings on and the usual elixir that comes with heat, sex and money. A terrific read, bursting with ideas, that leaves one jealous of the young Mr Sherez's talent.
-- Adrian McKinty, author of the The Bloomsday Dead
Atmospheric, faultlessly written, perfectly paced and thought-provoking... The Black Monastery is a thriller of the highest quality. Stav Sherez's prose is at turns terse and lyrical and every word is in exactly the right place. -- Crimesquad.com
Stav Sherez is one of my favourite living crime writers. The Black Monastery is superb; thrilling and thought-provoking in equal measure. -- Nick Stone, author of Mr Clarinet
