Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 18 February 2012
If not for a short review of this novel in a national newspaper this book would have passed me by. It won't be to everyone's taste but then this is true of all (crime) novels. A Dark Redemption is a a gritty, often brutal, exploration of the underbelly of London and the world of African immigrants. Stav Sherez is an accompolished author and this really shows: the plot is excellent (if dark - some of the story makes for uncomfortable reading) and so is character development. It is a pacey, page turning read that is strong on psychological insight. Yes there is violence which is brutal and stomach-turning in places but this reflects the gritty realism of the setting. In the hands of a less skilful author this could have been a turn-off. This is a story that will linger in the mind. I look forward to the next one in the series

Since writing this review this morning I have read another review, this time in the Guardian which concludes: "Fast paced and slick, this is the first in what could well be an outstanding series". I couldn't agree more.
