The BookViral Review:

The fourth instalment in Bradley’s Andalusian Mystery Series, Darkness in Granada completes the Crown case story arc and proves a thrilling climax that is sure to be well-received by his readers.

If a mystery is to be convincing it has to feel utterly plausible, Yet far too many releases in the genre prove disappointing and it’s for this reason that Bradley’s novels stand out. A vivid and insightful writer he has an acerbic eye for the pressures and poignancies of his characters which combined with his ability to craft a sophisticated and intelligent plot rapidly draws his readers in.

Darkness in Granada is no exception and is one of those rare stories you read whilst willing it not to venture where you fear it might ultimately go. It’s thoughtful, atmospheric and gripping, written by a writer in full command of his talents and on the level of plot alone Darkness in Granada works flawlessly to deliver a genuine page-turner. 

Everything Bradley writes is storytelling sinew and it’s rare to find extraneous detail that doesn’t move his narrative forward whilst his key characters DI Prado, Phillip Armitage and Amanda remain as authenticate as they did when first introduced to us with the release of Darkness In Malaga.

With real flair, he continues to get their personalities just right with attention to detail, dialogue and subtleties of character that make them utterly convincing. He also knows that no matter how good characters are they have to evolve. And in Darkness in Granada, we have the added dynamic of Philip’s son Sasha and the tragic circumstances that see them brought together.

A Tour De Force of intrigue with edgy noir chapters, Bradley once again leads his readers on an unforgettable journey into the heart of darkness to deliver a gripping and highly satisfying read. A five-star mystery novel Darkness in Granada receives our highest recommendation.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
