"Janet Roger's atmospheric new novel Shamus Dust is a sparkling Chandleresque thriller set in a bleak and wintry 1947 London. Newman, an American private eye plying his trade a long way from home, investigates a string of gun murders in the heart of the Blitz-battered capital. He encounters violent gangsters, greedy local politicians, bent detectives and femmes fatale as he uncovers a lethal web of corruption, blackmail and deceit. The characters are sharply drawn and the plot compelling. I look forward to reading more from this author."
