Product description

Review

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. Sansom, on A Song from Dead Lips)

Insightful . . . a novel about the estrangement of fathers and sons, but Shaw has gone beyond that, creating an elegy for an entire alienated generation (New York Times)

Excellent period yarn that tackles bent police, the dark side of hippiedom and utterly nails the myth of the Swinging Sixties (Sun)

A distinctive British crime drama, which benefits from a clear moral sense (Daily Mail)

It's a far out read, man. You'll dig it (Weekend Sport)

Convincing atmosphere, lively dialogue and a fun cop duo unite Beatlemania, English racism and the Biafran war (The Times, on A Song from Dead Lips)

London in 1968 is an evocative setting and Shaw skilfully re-creates an era of social turmoil and class conflict . . . against a vivid background of pop culture, casual racism and Britain's involvement in the bitter civil war in Nigeria (Sunday Times, on A Song from Dead Lips)

Excellent . . . A gripping story, with two appealing protagonists and impeccably researched period detail well deployed throughout. (Guardian, on A Song from Dead Lips)

A seismic mix of corruption and bigotry, couched in a prose of real distinction (Good Book Guide, on A Song from Dead Lips)

You can literally hear the Beatles as this andrenalined narrative jets along. The most startling original crime of the year (Ken Bruen, on A Song from Dead Lips)

Book Description

An honest detective comprehends the corrupting influence of power in a crime thriller that portrays the dark side of the sixties.
