And we’re off. You know the drill, if you don’t check the menu to the left. We’ve excited to have Stav Sherez joining the judging ranks this year – welcome, Stav!
Happy (evil, cunning, stunning) flashbanging, everyone.
Stav Sherez attended Latymer Upper School and the University of Leeds. His first novel, The Devil’s Playground, was published in 2004 by Penguin Books and was shortlisted for the CWA John Creasey Dagger. Sherez’s second novel, The Black Monastery, was published by Faber & Faber in April 2009.
His third novel, A Dark Redemption, the first in a London-based police procedural series, was published by Faber and Faber in February 2012. It deals with Joseph Kony and the legacy of LRA child soldiers now living in London. The second in the Carrigan and Miller series, Eleven Days, was published in 2013.
From 1999 to 2004 Sherez was a main contributor to the music magazine Comes with a Smile. He has also written for various other publications including The Daily Telegraph, Zembla and the Catholic Herald.
