    "Over-narrated"

    The story is really good and David Thorpe, the narrator is good until he makes up different voices. Unlike, say, brilliant narrators such as Simon Prebble or Simon Vance or George Guidall, David Thorpe is really bad at doing voices. He should stick to his own voice, which is rather good and stop trying to modify it. It's so bad that it really gets in the way of the story, and that's sad because there is nothing wrong with just reading with one's own voice.

    "A good plot."

    First book by this author, it will not be the last.

    If you are a fan of Jo Nesbo then give this a try.

    "a good mystery"
    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This audiobook has been in my audible library for a while , I think I bought it in a sale, (because it was highly recomended)
    The second book in the series really apealed to me , but then discovered that I had the first in the series , it sounded very political , and I wasn't sure that I would like it , but must admit I really enjoyed it . Very exciting story. i'm now really looking forward to the 2nd book in this series.

    Story
    "Cracker of a London-set Crime Fiction Novel"
    Where does A Dark Redemption rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's an excellent audio-book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Original backdrops.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Some v interesting scenes in this book. Flashbacks to Uganda. But the budding relationship between the two detectives thrown together by their grumpy boss is excellent and bodes well for future books in the series.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book is very well researched vis a vis conflicts in Uganda. The writer deals very sensitively with these disturbing issues.


    Any additional comments?

    Terrific book for those wanting an engaging crime fiction novel but one which covers new territory. Lots of great twists and turns and two terrific cops.

    Story
    "Fantastic"
    Would you listen to A Dark Redemption again? Why?

    Yes. Gripping. A detailed plot, which had several unexpected twists. Despite this, it was easy to follow. I also learnt a bit about eastern Africa and the politics.


    What other book might you compare A Dark Redemption to, and why?

    Can't think of one. This is generally not my genre, but I will be buying his other books.


    What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?

    Believable, flowed with the plot, did not distract.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't recommend this highly enough. Fantastic story and performance.

    "Great story, poor narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of A Dark Redemption to be better than the print version?

    I can't comment on the written version as I have not read it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I thought the plot was well thought out and hung together until the end.


    What didn’t you like about David Thorpe’s performance?

    I thought the narration was irritating, the voices of the characters was simply not realistic, really distracting from the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listened in stretches over about a week or so.

    Story
    "Eager for Carrigan and Miller book 2!"

    A well paced novel that has good twists and turns. Sets characters up well to continue into another story. Feels like the first of many so lacks that certain something that comes with knowing the characters well - looking forward to number 2 and have a feeling 3 will be even better.

    "A thoughtful story"

    This book is not just another detective story it reflects on the horrors of war and the impact it has on those who get caught up in it. It is very emotive and the story builds nicely till its climate.

    "An original story let down by poor editing"

    Mr Sherez introduces a relatively standard set up by pairing together two very different police officers (think Morse and Lewis or innumerable other examples and you won’t be far wrong). The story is however better than that premise suggests, and as DI Carrigan and DS Miller investigate a series of deaths in London they become involved in the world of refugee child soldiers who have fled to the UK from conflict in Africa.



    The tale involves the twists and turns that you would expect in a good crime novel and certainly there were twists which I did not anticipate. If that were all, the book would be a decent three stars. It drops one through the editing.



    At times A Dark Redemption reads like a self published Kindle story, and I was surprised to see that it’s published by Faber and Faber. There were two particular issues which annoyed me. First, Mr Sherez seems to have no faith in the power of his adjectives. Nothing is simply described as ‘old‘ or ‘blue‘ or ‘deep’. Rather, it is ‘old like ….’, ‘blue as …‘ or “deep in a way which reminded …’ The repeated use of simile becomes a distraction.



    Second, and more fundamentally, the dialogue is at times unconvincing, particularly when non-native English speakers are supposedly talking. Characters use words and phrases which real people just do not use.



    Both of these issues could have been corrected relatively easily by a decent editor, but as it stands they distract from what would otherwise be a pretty solid listen.

    "Better Than Average"

    Carrigan and Miller were beginning to grow on me by the end of the audio and although I only rated this work as a 3, it wont stop me buying the next book in the series.



    So,let's just say it was an enjoyable read, with a lot of scope for creating a cracking series.
