*CRIME BOOK OF THE MONTH* Superb . . . Shaw handles diverse plotlines brilliantly, demonstrating his ability to write about contemporary events with keen intelligence
A thrilling climax that will keep you guessing until the end
Shaw has made the bleak and inhospitable Kent coastline one of the principal characters in his mysteries . . . Opens spectacularly
Delivering a great sense of place, well-drawn characters and a feisty heroine, this is highly recommended
Sinister and divisive themes . . . Shaw is a master of characterisation . . . Totally believable
*PICK OF THE WEEK* Another clever, thoughtful mystery from one of the best authors of Brit crime fiction's new wave.
William Shaw is an expert manipulator of his readers' emotions . . . each new torment provokes readers' sympathies more and more . . . The many stranded drama works, but it is the boys' story that is the most engaging
*Audiobook of the Week* In the inventive and arresting Deadland, the outrageously rich haves of the art world and a pair of hopeless have-nots collide with murderous results . . .Tautly constructed thriller . . . Jasmine Blackborow is exactly the right reader, good at both posh and demotic accents, she does full justice to Shaw's skilfully rounded characterisation.
