Prose so smooth, so sweet, so swinging it will dance you straight back to the 1940s and make you the star of every black and white crime noir you ever watched at 2:am with a glass of whisky in your hand. A wonderful, wonderful book. 

JAKE NEEDHAM  | Author of the Mean Streets Crime Novels

Ms Roger’s American shamus in a sooty, postwar London of trench coats and shadows evokes the ghost of Marlowe abroad. SHAMUS DUST is a noir homage that reminds us the blackouts may have ended but the city’s darkness lingered on; it’s an evocative, haunting debut.  

CHRISTOPHER FOWLER. | Award-winning author of the Penguin series Bryant & May

Roger can write like a dirty, noir dream that thrashes in the small hours. ... her own hard-boiled masterclass, with plenty of the unexpected and enough action and drama to keep the blood pumping. A superb debut.  

CHRIS NICKSON | Author, Creme de la Crime

SHAMUS DUST is classic literary noir at its finest. A beautifully rendered and intriguing post-war mystery.  

BRUCE ROBERT COFFIN | Bestselling author of the award-winning Detective Byron Mysteries

Two candles flaring at a Christmas crib. A nurse who steps inside a church to light them. A gunshot emptied in a man’s head in the creaking stillness before dawn, that the nurse says she didn’t hear. It’s 1947 in the snowbound, war-scarred City of London, where Pandora’s Box just got opened in the ruins, City Police has a vice killing on its hands, and a spooked councilor hires a shamus to help spare his blushes. Like the Buddha says, everything is connected. So it all can be explained. But that’s a little cryptic when you happen to be the shamus, and you’re standing over a corpse.
