REVIEW OF SHAMUS DUST
A CLASSIC OF THE NOIR GENRE!
"This is how you write a detective/murder mystery to impress me. A proper noir set in post-war London. Very atmospheric, vivid descriptions, I've enjoyed the occasional sarcasm, in other words: I loved almost every single page of it.
Brilliant writing style, feeling like a classic of the genre. An array of interesting characters, portraying a large palette of human behaviors and morality. I truly rooted for the doc and the detective to get together(bonus points for the way their relationship ended).
The only thing that annoyed me was this modern need to set everything to rights before ending a book. We could have done without know everything about every single character/ situation.
