A Dark Redemption

1 Mins read

In London a Ugandan student, Grace Okello, is savagely murdered. She’s been raped and tortured, her heart cut from her body. The initial assumption that this is just another sex crime doesn’t sit well with DI Jack Carrigan, but he’s getting pressure from above to close the case. His boss is aware of the potential media storm and the political implications so any answer will do, as long as it’s fast and neat. Carrigan is a principled man though and his partner Geneva Miller, seconded to the team to spy on Carrigan, is convinced that Grace’s murder had nothing to do with sex. Grace is an enigma, even to her friends, and as they dig further they realise she had the kind of secrets which can get you killed.  As the investigation into Grace’s murder progresses Carrigan and his team begin to unearth links with a radical Ugandan resistance group in London, plunging them into the twilight world of the African diaspora. In writing A Dark Redemption Sherez has taken those old Newsnight packages, and the reports on the World Service you listened to with half an ear, and worked them into a compelling crime novel which is honest-to-god unputdownable.
