Editorial Reviews


"Insightful . . . An elegy for an entire alienated generation."
Marilyn Stasio, New York Times Book Review

"[Breen] is nervy, a true original in his line of work, altogether the most welcome new crime solver in British fiction. . . . You'll never read a better evocation of London circa 1968."
Jack Batten, Toronto Star

"A slow burn . . . Good to the last ember"
Arielle Landau, New York Daily News

"A must read! . . . Shaw's characters are flawed, but never dull. The story moves along at a good clip, with the action building toward a thrilling conclusion."
Philip Zozzaro, San Francisco Book Review

"This critique of the Swinging Sixties is administered by a crackerjack storyteller who adroitly balances likable lead characters, bursts of intense action, and a great ear for office banter that will engage any reader who remembers the era, as well as anyone who has to google 'bell-bottoms.'"
Library Journal (starred)

"A clever caper . . . Shaw has done a very good job indeed of weaving this yarn. . . . Everything here feels authentic.
Brooke Wylie, Examiner.com

"Darkly humorous . . . Shaw perfectly captures London in the swinging 60s . . . Breen and Tozer come across as fallible human beings . . . It's their relationship-both professional and personal-that makes this a winner."
Publishers Weekly

"Shaw skillfully resurrects the 1960s bohemian art scene in London. . . . Shaw improves on this series' strong debut."

"Shaw makes the gritty English capital come alive . . . [He] admirably depicts the steep uphill battle for women trying to make a career with the police in the '60s."
Kirkus Reviews
