Product description

Review

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)

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)

Excellent procedural ... A gripping story, with two appealing protagonists and impeccably researched period details deployed throughout (Laura Wilson Guardian)

Convincing atmosphere, lively dialogue and a fun cop duo unite Beatlemania, English racism and the Biafran war (The Times)

Excellent (Mail on Sunday)

Superb characterisation, a vivid recreation of the era, its sights, sounds and prejudices make this a highly enjoyable and readable debut for the pairing . . . Shaw is certainly a name to note for the future and we shall see this original and likeable couple again soon (Crime Review)

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)

Book Description

The first Breen & Tozer police thriller that reveals gritty sixties London in all its power and prejudice.
