'A gripping serial killer story with an exceptional depth of humanity, Deity delves into the darkest corners of human motivation. DI Damen Brook is one of the most memorable characters in recent British crime fiction. The city of Derby finally has a copper to match anything Edinburgh or Oxford can produce! Dark and twisted, but DI Brook has an intense emotional core'
'I've read all of Steven Dunne's Damon Brook novels and have enjoyed all three, but DEITY is the best (so far!) It's very rare that I find a book that I just can't stop reading , but DEITY was devoured in two sessions, with only the need to sleep getting in the way! I'm really coming to care about DI Brook, his dark past and broken present, troubled relationships and a life teetering on the edge of total collapse. I don't know if it's Steven Dunne's eye for local detail, or understanding of young people that really brings DEITY to life, but I can't walk home over the Derwent without checking in the water for bodies, or wondering which of the Drinkers by the Assembly rooms is working undercover! I'm sure, in time Derby will be as linked to DI Brook as Oxford is to Morse, or Edinburgh to Rebus.'
