REVIEW OF SHAMUS DUST
SHAMUS DUST is a brilliant debut gritty noir murder mystery by Janet Roger.
This is a wonderfully well written homage and a gritty superbly plotted PI noir in its own right. The characterization is spot on and believable. This is a very well crafted and engaging mystery. As other reviewers have said, there are nods to Chandler, Cain, Hammett, and the rest of that crew, but honestly, the author's own unique voice is what kept me reading long into the night.
This is a superlative read and a classic PI novel.
Bonus points for setting it in London and not the mean streets of LA or NYC.
Five stars. This is a really good one. I will be following this author enthusiastically.
