Reviews

'A first-rate police thriller set amidst the seamy underside of the swinging sixties ... The totemic year of '68 will never seem the same again' C. J. Samson. * C. J. Samson *
'Convincing atmosphere, lively dialogue and a fun cop duo unite Beatlemania, English racism and the Biafran war' The Times. * The Times *
'Excellent ... authentic, often humorous ... The Sixties have been examined and presented every which way, but A Song From Dead Lips manages to be something fresh, both in this regard and as a detective novel' Killing Time Crime. * Killing Time Crime *
'Excellent' Mail on Sunday. * Mail on Sunday *
'Excellent procedural ... A gripping story, with two appealing protagonists and impeccably researched period details deployed throughout' Laura Wilson, Guardian. * Guardian *
'London in 1968 is an evocative setting and Shaw skilfully re-creates an era of social turmoil and class conflict' Sunday Times. * Sunday Times *
'Superb characterisation, a vivid recreation of the era, its sights, sounds and prejudices make this a highly enjoyable and readable debut for the pairing, although with Tozer threatening to return to the West Country, a series seems a shade ambitious. I trust that Shaw, who is certainly a name to note for the future, has a plan to subvert this and we shall see this original and likeable couple again soon' Crime Review. * Crime Review *
