Présentation de l'éditeur

AWARDED SECOND PRIZE IN THE 2013 RUBERY INTERNATIONAL BOOK AWARDS http://www.ruberybookaward.com/2013-book-winners.html


'One of the best crime novels I have ever read' M. C. Scott, bestselling author of the Rome Series


CHRISTMAS, and it’s the end of the road for Matt and Lauren Silver and their tempestuous marriage. Rock star Silver has been touring abroad once too often, neglecting Lauren and their twin daughters, Gudrun and Freya. In a desperate attempt to put things right, he cancels his tour and comes home - but instead of the reconciliation he longs for he triggers a tragedy which will shatter all their lives forever. In a terrible accident Gudrun is killed and Silver vanishes, assumed dead. In fact, badly injured, he disappears into the shadows of underworld London, desperate, traumatized, and unable to face what he has done. Lauren is crushed by guilt, and her surviving daughter Freya is so emotionally scarred that no-one can reach her.

No-one that is, except Inspector Sam Cobb, the detective sent to investigate the tragedy - a man with scars of his own. He reluctantly enters the Silvers’ bleak world, but when he does he brings hope. Hope of recovery. Hope for the future. Hope of redemption.

Matt Silver, meanwhile, disfigured and desolate, has found comfort of a kind, thanks to the humanity of new and unexpected allies. Despite himself he has begun to heal, to grow stronger. To think of emerging from the shadows.

And because of this, for Sam Cobb, Lauren and Freya there will come a time when hope alone is not enough.


‘An excellent read and Griggs keeps us guessing right up to the great twist at the end.' The Times

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hard to put down! 9 décembre 2014
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
At last, an enthralling crime thriller written in good English! After quite a few of my more recent purchases that showed a total ignorance of basic English grammar and syntax it was a joy to read and proof, if proof were needed, that the genre should not be an excuse for anyone, and (it seems) everyone, to pick up a pen and write. Not everyone can although it is now fashionable to think so.
P.D. James was the perfect combination of a good writer and a brilliant story-teller, admired by all. She was the gold standard that crime fiction should aspire to. T.D. Griggs comes close.

Brilliant description of a strange world and an interesting mystery. I recommend this book although I regretted the end as being a little inconclusive.

This book has real atmosphere and is one of the few crime novels that has stayed in my thoughts for days due to the characters and writing. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Couldn't put it down 22 août 2013
Par Sylvia James - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Interesting and unusual plot with a twist at the end. The author clearly carries out thorough and careful research. I have immediately started another book by this author, Distant Thunder, which is completely different in concept but I am already gripped.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fine work 19 janvier 2013
Par A.N. Oik - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I can strongly recommend this fine work. I don't read much fiction, but this was a cracker: well-delineated characters, a fascinating plot and plenty of thrills. I will certainly seek out more works by this chap: he seems a very promising young talent.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good story and good read 18 avril 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The story is interesting and the characters well developed. The description of the transformation following a tragedy, of indulgent rock star and wife to more humble people is believable. Settings in London and the English countryside seem real. Budding romances between what at first seem unlikely people are handled well and are not overdone.

Although there is no real mystery, the story holds the reader to the end. Overall, a worthwhile read.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Should earn the author legions of new fans 20 mai 2013
Par Jim Napier, mystery & crime fiction reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
On a tour in Europe, middle-aged and drug-addicted rock star Matt Silver takes stock of his life, personal and professional, and finds it wanting. His career, firmly grounded in an exceptional talent, has made him a global star, but at a cost: his family has suffered from his frequent absences and his dependence on booze, drugs, and on-the-road sex. Realising that he's at a tipping point, Silver abandons his tour in mid-run to return to England to try to save his troubled marriage with his wife, Lauren. But arriving at their country home in the early hours of the morning he finds Lauren about to leave him with their twin ten-year-old daughters, Freya and Gudrun. Still high on coke he elbows Lauren out of the way, bundles the children into their luxury car, and speeds off toward London. Before long his erratic driving attracts the police, and he's involved in a high-speed pursuit. Approaching Lambeth Bridge he drives through a construction barrier and plunges into the icy waters of the Thames. In the chaotic aftermath, Gudrun drowns, Freya is rescued, and Matt's body cannot be found.

In the aftermath of the tragedy, DI Sam Cobb is assigned to head the police enquiry into the accident. His superiors are concerned about the press fallout over the crash and not least, their failure to find Silver's body.

But Cobb brings his own personal baggage to the case: although he has a flat in London, he spends much of his personal time with his father Fred on their family farm a little over an hour from the city. At seventy-eight, his father can use the help, and their time together allows Sam to de-compress from the pressures of the job as he contemplates ending his policing career.

As Lauren struggles to cope with the magnitude of her loss, Silver's ex-manager, Tommy Hudson returns from Europe and moves into the family home, allegedly to help Lauren fill the vacuum caused by Matt's absence. Is he simply a longtime family friend there for her in her hour of need, or is he a cagey opportunist looking to take Matt's place in Lauren's turbulent life?

When the press stakes out their home, Sam reluctantly gives Lauren and Freya sanctuary at his father's farm. Slowly but surely Lauren and Freya become part of his cloistered life, and they begin together to form a healing bond, adding yet another layer of intrigue to the already engrossing tale.

Lauren has never accepted that Matt Silver died that night. Sam Cobb questions her belief, but being the good copper that he is, presses for clear evidence one way or the other. If Silver did survive the events of that night, why hasn't he surfaced? And if he does reappear, how will Lauren and Freya's lives -- and his own -- be affected?

Redemption Blues has genuine depth, and is by turns poignant and fast-moving. It is a writers' book: Griggs has a commanding narrative voice, so convincing that it could be non-fiction, so compelling that the pages fly by. Small wonder, then, that it has already sold a million copies. Available once more in print, and now also as an e-book, this latest edition of Redemption Blues should earn the author legions of new fans. There is much here to savour, and for those who warm to his writing there is more good news: in the interim Griggs has published three more standalone novels.

--Since 2005 Jim Napier's reviews and interviews have appeared in several Canadian newspapers and on such websites as Spinetingler, The Rap Sheet, Shots Magazine, Crime Time, Reviewing The Evidence, January magazine, and Type M for Murder, as well as on his own award-winning site, Deadly Diversions.
