Murder in London Linked with the Ugandan Heart of Darkness
on 26 March 2012
So, I started reading a novel that sounded like a regular police procedural about a murdered student in London and ended up reading about Northern Ugandan politics and warfare, Joseph Kony and child soldiers too.
A Dark Redemption is an excellent, thoroughly well written, crime thriller. The main cop protagonists, DI Carrigan and DS Miller, are very well rounded and complex characters whose back-stories are fed to us sparingly, droplet by droplet. This, together with a fast paced complex plot, made A Dark Redemption a novel which I found very hard to put down.
It is also a novel about how decisions in the past can return to haunt us in the present. I very much enjoyed reading this novel.
