Thoroughly enjoyable read

Stav Sherez has produced a crime fiction marvel; a most incredible way with words.
Where other crime writers may stop at the typical boundaries, Sherez pushes them. Venturing into the currently relevant Ugandan politics, Sherez introduces an evil protagonist, leaving his victims mauled and bloodied in a distinctive signature mark. Can Jack Carrigan shake off his own personal connections to the situation and focus on tracking the killer before more end up dead? With the Foreign Office breathing down his neck and DS Miller watching him closely, will they be able to solve the true motive for the murder or will he get thrown from the case?
It is a fantastic, swiftly paced story written in a refreshingly descriptive manner which enlightens every sense and creates a deeper level of understanding of the characters, painting a picture from their own mental pains and frustrations to their own character afflictions.
Definitely worth a read and I will definitely be delving into other books from his collection.
