Who's saying what about Shamus Dust? Just click on an image or a spotlight quote...

A terrific P.I. novel set in London just after the WWII. The prose is elegant, the wit sharp, and the observations acute.  John Crawley

The shamus is an American, an outsider and he sees it differently - more detail, more understanding and we find, more humanity than the entitled, the wealthy, the corrupt. Jim Biddle

Janet Roger knows how to spin a tale and draw out the suspense.  Claire Sheehy

Written in rich, thick prose that you could get lost in, this is a spectacular journey. Dave Wilde

I want more, much more of this hard-bitten, battered, bruised, and hugely cynical, but ultimately big-hearted PI. Jon Morgan

It's a story you don't want to end as you cheer for the good guy and hope he makes it out the other side in one piece. This is crime writing of the highest order.  GG Lynch


It’s rare to find a crime novel, an historical crime novel that boasts such elegant prose..  Gill Chedgey

This book has everything - murder, mystery, blackmail, tension, great characters and plot. I highly recommend it.  Jacqueline Sharp

Every so often a book comes along that is so beautifully written and so haunting that a reviewer has to dig deep to even begin to do it justice. Shamus Dust by Janet Roger is one such. David Prestidge

The writing was crisp, clear and addicting! The characters were amazing and you just don’t want the story to end.  Nurse Bookie

The conversations drip with classic black and white noir, and some of the colours she puts into the descriptions read like poetry. Jason Beech

Gotta love when you feel you are there, eavesdropping on the characters. Kim Connerty

Shamus Dust takes the reader back to post war London, where greed, corruption and crime rule the roost and moral values have taken a backstage in face of overwhelming greed.  Soumini Bassu

I found myself immersed in a well-crafted story with intriguing threads and characters.  Mike Davies
Janet Roger has provided a well-written story with twists and turns, red herrings, the chase, blackmail, danger, and murder.  Linda Zagon
Beautifully written and highly descriptive, it is so atmospheric you can almost smell the smoky air……a book to take your time over and savour.   Lesley Budge
