MURDER IN COMMON REVIEW: 

London, England Post WWII

It’s almost dawn on Christmas day when Newman’s phone rings. A City Councilor is sending his driver to bring the Private Investigator Newman to the scene of an incident.

The body of Raymond Jarrett is found outside a church. Jarrett is a pimp for young men to discerning clients. And oh yes, a scandal is now in the making.

I won’t go further into the story, you have enough to get you started. This book takes time to read, the wording while intricate, is fluid and absorbing.

Beautifully written, Shamus Dust is a classic, atmospheric novel. Hardboiled in a restrained, soulful debut. Janet Roger is a rare writer.

GOODREADS REVIEW

Brilliant! Hardboiled, noir so well written I suspect it will be a classic to be reread again and again.
