A novel by

 
 
Dave Bushinsky is one of London's more powerful gangsters, and he has a dream -- to raise enough money to buy a football club, which will allow him to put behind his murky past and become a legitimate businessman. To realize those funds, he has imprisoned a chemical genius who is working hard on an insanely addictive designer drug that will sweep through the world like a virus and generate a quick fortune for its unscrupulous distributor. Big Sandy is the ganglord's strong right arm, loyal and dependable, swift to follow his master's command. Clint Smith is a drug dealer, scheming to move up in the world. Kevin Tyne is a twisted lowlife with a disturbing hold over his innocent young sister. Gawl McCaskey is a brutal killer who has returned to his old stomping ground. The fates of these four men of violence will weave together as Dave Bushinsky's plans develop, and in the darkness of the long winter nights they will confront their demons -- and each other. A dark, fast-paced, twist-packed crime thriller, set on the bloodstained streets of London. EDITORIAL REVIEWS "The book flaunts the grim panache of a London crime saga, and all the characters are engaging, no matter how despicable they are. Not for the faint of heart, but this novel's character studies and ever shifting plot will excite fans of English noir." Kirkus -- a Recommended Read. "The Evil And The Pure is a deliciously dark delight; a gritty, realistic look at the depths of human depravity. The journeys of the four men are fascinating and enviably complex. The twists and turns have you reeling with shock. A glory to read. 5/5 stars." Matthew R Bell's BookBlogBonanza. "A thoughtful and enthralling examination of a society that is seedy, corrupt and painfully uncompromising. Darren Dash is a skillful writer, whose greatest talent lies in his depictions of character. Few writers can so easily and powerfully communicate the complexities of people dragged into a world of darkness and despair." Safie Maken Finlay, author. "I found myself brilliantly horrified and captivated as I read and was taken along on a dark journey with a range of dangerous, sick and even innocent characters." Chase That Horizon. "An amazing read... a book you won't want to end... It's got the cast complexity of a Maeve Binchy novel as if written by a violent madman, and I mean that as a compliment! 5/5 stars." Kelly Smith Reviews. "Although it's dark, great characterization and a superb plot keep you turning the pages. If you're up for an adventure, this book is for you. I rate this book a five-star read." Tracey Lampley, author.
