About this title


Dan Abatangelo and Shel Beaudry are two 'for life' lovers, whose adventures as the last of the independent 'gentleman' marijuana smugglers ('no violence - it's all about the money') come to an abrupt end with their arrest in Las Vegas. Dan pleads guilty and receives a ten-year sentence in exchange for a more lenient term for Shel.

Released from prison, Shel struggles to keep her life on track without Dan's emotional support. Succumbing to a weakness for 'strays' she becomes the sole caregiver of Frank Maas, a psychologically scarred and unstable loner on the fringes of a crime ring operating in the delta. With Dan's release from prison imminent, Frank plans a quick, ill- conceived score, hoping with money in hand to persuade Shel to disappear with him. The plan backfires miserably, and Frank, Shel and Dan are caught up in an inferno they cannot hope to survive.


The Devil's Redhead by David Corbet is an exceptionally assured first novel. ... Corbett handles dialogue, narrative and and charaterisation like an experienced novelist and is a name to watch. (Susanna Yager SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)

This is a classy well-written book ... Corbett could well find himself up there with the likes of Coben, Connelly and Cornwell. (TIME OUT)

Full of action, dark and brutal, this is a splendid evocation of West Coast crime and split loyalties that resonates long after the final page is turned, and it reveals a major new voice. (Maxim Jakobowski THE GUARDIAN)
