Journey Into Darkness
'Journey into Darkness' is a crime thriller with a difference - not a whodunit, more of a 'why?' Opening in London, we find Jamil, the main protagonist, an immigration officer with the Border Agency. He has a secret past and dark plans for the future. An abusive husband besotted with his infant son, he has tired of his wife Katya. Both Jamil and Katya are of Turkish origin, both legal immigrants who met through their respective work. Already immersed in dubious activities and with contacts in the criminal fraternity, Jamil sets about putting into action his plan to dispose of his wife. The book takes the reader into his sleazy world to meet some of his cohorts - and the victims whose own stories unfold along the way. All seems set to proceed to plan for Jamil until fate takes a hand. Two simultaneous and seemingly unconnected events throw a spanner in the works and bring DCI Ben Shakespeare of the Metropolitan Police and his Sargeant Mickey Gray onto the scene. When the police officers realise the two incidents are indeed connected, their investigations centre around Jamil. As they attempt to unravel the vagaries of the man's life and crimes, the world and experiences of his various victims are exposed to the reader. The attempts of Shakespeare and Gray to bring Jamil to justice spread across a continent. But will they be successful or will he be the victor and evade their grasp? And what will happen to his victims along the way? Will they find salvation or will they succumb to the darkness of his world? The story highlights some of the most pressing social problems facing the world in the twenty first century. Despite all, hope springs eternal!
