New York Author, Bennett Kremen, Pens a Gripping Tale of Crime, Love and Redemption

The author’s suspense thriller earns praise from readers and critics for its compelling plot and well-crafted characters.


A great roller coaster ride of a book

“A tough, gripping phantasmagoria of violence and redemption,” senior editor of The Nation and former book editor of The New York Times Richard Lingeman said of the contemporary fiction novel “Savage Days Haunted Nights” (BookSurge Publishing, 2008) by Chicago-born New York novelist Bennett Kremen.
“Savage Days Haunted Nights” deeply explores life’s profound moral questions and values – and what do they mean in an environment that abounds with crime and gang violence through the eyes of Dorian, the protagonist of the story.
Raised in Chicago’s dark underbelly, the tough and formidable Dorian enters New York’s competitive, pulsating art and journalistic world, hoping to start a new life as a freelance writer. Readers will relate to Dorian who attempts to leave his gang life behind to embrace his writing skills in a new city.
But as life would have it, his freelance job does not pay him much and his dyslexia still cripples him further. Worse, his gang past would catch up with him and soon his violent nature resurfaces. The struggles Dorian faces this time are all the more harrowing, now that he has got a girlfriend – and a future of them being together – to protect.
The suspenseful “Savage Days Haunted Nights” portrays an intense and unrelenting struggle between good and evil. Page after page, readers will have to sit and even empathize with Dorian as he battles for decency and dignity in every way he can.
A lot of elements are in place in “Savage Days Haunted Nights” to drive the story forward with action and reflection and define and enhance the protagonist’s journey. The literary suspense thriller deals with themes of identity, redemption, affirmation of the human spirit, embracing of one’s vocation, the randomness of life, suffering, and inhumanity.
Is the novel worth buying? Indeed, it is. “An exciting and fast-moving read. Well worth ordering,” said Amazon customer Peter Hochstein who praised the book for its tense adventure and colorful characters.
“A book that definitely grabs your attention and doesn’t for a minute let you go,” said Gina Marco, another Amazon customer. “The main character is always intriguing, a combination of both the sublime and the savage, of the poet and the avenger.”
