The Evil And The Pure by Darren Dash

The Evil And The Pure


A dark, twisting crime novel, set on the bloodstained streets of London. A gangster is trying to raise funds to buy legitimacy. A drug dealer is scheming to move up in the world. A degenerate man is exploiting an innocent young woman. A depraved priest is preying on his flock. A killer has returned to his old stomping ground.

A mob enforcer will draw these men of evil together, and in the darkness they will confront their demons — and each other.

A fast-paced, hard-hitting crime thriller, with shades of James Ellroy, Brett Easton Ellis, David Peace, Dennis Lehane, Stieg Larsson, Jo Nesbo, Michael Connelly, John Connolly.

“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.

Jellyfish by Lev D. Lewis

Jellyfish: The first crime novel featuring Frank Bale, London’s ‘premier’ private investigator (A Frank Bale Book, Book 1)


If you’re after British crime fiction that’s hard boiled and noir with a touch of black humour, then Jellyfish could be for you – if you’re not, try it anyway.

“Frank Bale. Private Investigator.”
That’s how I always introduce myself. I never add the ‘and Process Server’ bit, though, at times, that would give a truer representation of the facts.

Once a promising young solicitor enjoying the high life in Savile Row suits, Frank Bale now scrapes a living on the mean streets of London, principally working as a process server – with a Marlowe fantasy to keep him going:

I rang the doorbell, still wondering: goon or dame? That was the fantasy, the thought that behind the next door may lurk a goon with a gun or a dame with legs. It brought a frisson of sun-baked Californian menace to the wearying trudge down streets as cold and grey and wet as a drowned man’s shadow, between doors that only opened, if they opened at all, on the desperate and despairing.

When, working into the small hours, Frank discovers a murdered girl in an alley, he can’t believe his luck; stumbling upon a corpse is exactly what happens to the private eyes of fiction. Only this isn’t fiction, and his luck is generally bad, so he decides to simply return home, go to bed, and leave the police to get on with it.

Frank hates the police. Likewise, the police aren’t too fond of him, especially since he’s become the chief suspect in their murder investigation.

It’s not just the police; the entire world seems to have it in for Frank. Even his one-time mentor and friend, Gus, is rapidly going off him, especially since learning of Frank’s assignation with Mrs Knights, the soon to be ex-wife of one of Gus’s long-term clients. And the client, Knights, despises him, especially, and he doesn’t hold back in showing it – with the helping hands (and feet) of a couple of tame thugs.

Feeling battered, both physically and psychologically, Frank decides to fight back, taking on the world in the only way he can, turning his fantasy into action armed with nothing but native guile and intuition.

And the Investigator’s Fallacy: the belief that my native guile and intuition counted.

Haunted by the corpse, finding comfort only in dreams of Mrs Knights, Frank scours South London’s dark nether regions, disturbing the jellyfish that lurk there. And the jellyfish react, striking back at Frank, their choice of weapons accelerating in deadliness: fists to golf clubs to guns.

Can Frank keep himself alive long enough to find the girl’s killer and mete out his own particular style of justice – and arrange a second date with Mrs K?

Jellyfishn.
Any of a number of heartless, brainless creatures of the deep with cannibalistic tendencies and a sting. The stings range from irritating to lethal.
Collective n.Smack

With his debut novel, Jellyfish, featuring Frank Bale with a Philip Marlowe delusion, Lev D. Lewis follows in the PI tradition of Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, Ross MacDonald, Robert B. Parker, Kinky Friedman and Laurence Bloch, but adds his very own British twist.
