SHAMUS DUST

HARD WINTER, COLD WAR, COOL MURDER

SHAMUSDUST WEB TRIMMED- Copy.jpg

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

BRUCE ROBERT COFFIN, Bestselling author of the Detective Byron Mysteries

Prose so smooth, so sweet, so swinging it will dance you straight back to the 1940s ... A wonderful, wonderful book. 

JAKE NEEDHAM, Author of the Mean Streets Crime Novels

Roger can write like a dirty, noir dream that thrashes in the small hours ... with  enough action and drama to keep the blood pumping. A superb debut. 

CHRIS NICKSON, Author, Creme de la Crime

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

The reader feels the chill of a winter in London as the chill of murder and danger. The book gets my highest recommendation.

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.
