A Dark Redemption

1 Mins read

This was LoiteringWithIntent‘s favourite crime book of 2012. She wrote: “Back in February I picked up a copy of A Dark Redemption and before I was 50 pages in I knew it would make my top five list. By the end I knew it would be at number one. A highly sophisticated police procedural which takes the reader down London streets less known, into communities haunted by African wars, where political activists rub shoulders with ex-child soldiers and warlords, it explores the legacy of violence and the price of searching for truth when many people want it to remain buried. Introducing detectives Carrigan and Miller, an intriguing pair who bring their own complicated histories to the page, this is a fabulous opening to a new series which I’m sure will prove to be a big hit with readers who like their crime politically literate and elegantly written.”
