REVIEW OF SHAMUS DUST

LYRICAL AND EVOCATIVE

"Newman is an indie PI in a London still struggling to recover from the bombing and upheaval of the war. Early Christmas morning, he receives a call from a high ranking city official.


Entering her church to observe prayers before her early shift, Nurse Greer discovers the body of a neighbor. The victim is a tenant of the official and he hires Newman to investigate.

 

Diligent and dogged, Newman's case follows a winding path from vice, blackmail, infidelity and corporate fraud. Witnesses throw "shamus dust" into his eyes around every corner.

 

This is a multi-layered, multi character novel with twists and more deaths along the route.

 

I found the writing to be lyrical and evocative but it was a slower read for me following the threads and characters.

 

The culprit caught me off-guard. An interesting historical crime novel and worth the time."
