'If you're not a fan yet, why not?' VAL MCDERMID

'A superb storyteller' PETER MAY


A BIZARRE DISCOVERY


An unidentified corpse is found in a freezer in the garage of an unoccupied house. DS Alexandra Cupidi is handed a case that is made even colder by no-one seeming to know or care whose body it is.

A HISTORIC CRIME

It becomes clear there is a connection between the crime and a skeleton uncovered underneath a housing development of Trevor Grey, a boy who went missing twenty five years earlier.

A BURIED LIFE

Digging deep into secrets that have long been concealed brings Cupidi to face a deadly conspiracy to hide these crimes. Her investigation is complicated by a secret liaison, a political cover-up and the underground life of Trevor Grey's only friend.

With meticulously realised characters and a brooding setting, Grave's End confronts the crisis in housing, environmentalism, historic cases of abuse and the protection given to badgers by the law. The third book in the DS Alexandra Cupidi series confirms William Shaw as one of our finest writers of crime fiction

MEDIA REVIEWS
A powerful, scary suspense mystery which had me swiping over pages at speed while savouring every word. This is a brilliant novel. -- Lesley Thomson
Shaw never lectures; his crucial imperative remains ironclad storytelling and razor-sharp characterisation, both in evidence here * Financial Times *
It offers a complex, thoroughly involving set of interlocking mysteries, full of properly realised characters and wonderfully atmospheric settings. And you'll learn a lot about badgers along the way * The Mail on Sunday (Best Fiction Round-Up) *
A taut, atmospheric mystery with a complex plot * Candis *
[A]n ingenious, often moving and always powerful story, which brilliantly captures Kent and its social divisions and offers a realistic, if harsh, look at the inequalities of life in modern Britain. * Crime Review *
If you haven't read any William Shaw before start immediately * iNews (15 books to read for Halloween 2020) *

“Complex, tense, exciting and beautifully plotted, this is a class act from William Shaw”

I love the relationship between D.S.Cupidi and her younger colleague, Constable Jill Ferriter. Shaw’s setting always play a pivotal role in these books and they are rich and atmospheric as a result.
