GET HIGH. FALL FAR.

'William Shaw is one of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction' Peter James

'If you're not a fan yet, why not?' Val McDermid

'Utterly nails the myth of the Swinging Sixties' Sun

The Black Sheep

The wayward son of a rising MP is mutilated and burnt in suspicious circumstances.

The Honest Detective

DS Cathal Breen dodges political embargo and death threats to pursue the case.

The Rolling Stone

Notorious art dealer Robert Fraser may provide the only clue - if only he will talk.

And as Breen slips deeper into London's underground of hippies and heroin, he edges nearer to the secrets of those at the very top. Banished from a corrupt and fracturing system, he will finally be forced to fight fire with fire.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Insightful . . . a novel about the estrangement of fathers and sons, but Shaw has gone beyond that, creating an elegy for an entire alienated generation * New York Times *
Excellent period yarn that tackles bent police, the dark side of hippiedom and utterly nails the myth of the Swinging Sixties * Sun *
A distinctive British crime drama, which benefits from a clear moral sense * Daily Mail *
It's a far out read, man. You'll dig it * Weekend Sport *
