About the Author

Stav Sherez is a freelance journalist and the author of three previous novels. The Devil's Playground (2004), his debut, was described by James Sallis as "altogether extraordinary, it introduces a major new talent," and his second novel, The Black Monastery (2009), was described as "dynamite fiction" in the Independent and 'spectacular' by Laura Wilson in the Guardian. A Dark Redemption (2013, Europa Editions) was shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year and is the first of a striking new police procedural series featuring DI Jack Carrigan and DS Geneva Miller.
