‘This is Mike Phillips’s best novel, brutal and caring, totally authentic’ The Times

Sent from London to New York to bring a dying friend’s message to his daughter, Mary, Sam Dean arrives in Queens, steeped in a mesh of Caribbean and Hispanic culture, looking forward to reconnecting with family and old friends.

But his relaxing holiday turns dark when Mary disappears, and Sammy is caught up in a world of murder, sex, and corrupt politics that threatens to turn his world upside down.

Melded with social commentary around race, class and gentrification, Point of Darkness is a gripping thriller, still eerily relevant.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for Mike Phillips‘This is Mike Phillips’s best novel, brutal and caring, totally authentic’The Times ‘Phillips delivers his seamy tale with an enviably warm spareness of effect’Sunday Times ‘An incisive study of immigrant experience wrapped up in a gripping thriller’Times Literary Supplement ‘The Best British thriller in years… A novel that seems to have been written for a purpose; it deals with the black British community as something other than a problem or a political cliché’Marie Claire ‘Could have come from the pen of the master, Raymond Chandler’Today A thriller which maintains pace and provides excitements rooted in reality … a winner’Guardian ‘There’s much here to suggest that Phillips could be one of our bravest, most incisive social commentators’Mail on Sunday Phillips’ depictions of urban London share more with Harlem and Los Angeles than the English drawing rooms of P.D. James and Ruth Rendell’Financial Times ‘Phillips… gives a mean streetwise documentary edge to his hero’s hunt for a witness’Sunday Express ‘Mr Phillips writes in a precise uncluttered style that suits the detective novel’s ritualistic form. But it is the sensibility of his hero – a black man – that lends freshness to the form itself’The New York Times Book Review ‘As a political thriller it has something to say about multi-cultural Britain that is both revealing and intelligent … a good novel, deftly handled and deserving of praise’Time Out
