'Big treat in store for fans. And if you're not a fan yet, why not?' Val McDermid

SUMMER OF LOVE

She made a profit from her youth. She's not beautiful anymore - but now she will be young forever.

Called away from his pregnant girlfriend, Detective Sergeant Cathal Breen knows the sight of the murdered prostitute will be with him all his life. But this is what he does: he finds killers. Helen Tozer, more than most, understands why.

SUMMER OF DEATH

The girl they called Julie Teenager had a client list full of suspects - all rich, powerful - and protected. Someone warns off the beat coppers; someone disturbs the crime scene. When Breen gets a phone call from MI6, he fears just how protected his suspect is. These are dangerous waters, where Russian spies hide.

Then Helen, with her unstoppable copper's instinct and fierce moral sense, dives into the investigation. And Breen knows he has more to lose than ever before. He is about to become a father. He can have no sympathy for the devil.

Tense, dramatic and ingeniously plotted, Sympathy for the Devil is a gripping police thriller set in a world before forensics or criminal databases; a world that's bigoted and brutal.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Big treat in store for fans. And if you're not a fan yet, why not? * Val McDermid *
William Shaw is a superb flowing writer, both of police procedure and personal relations, and perhaps England's most adept at using dialogue (as distinct from description) to propel his always intelligent stories * The Times *
This book contains the kind of writing - silky, seductive, unobtrusive - that carries one along. I picked the book up to get a taste of it and an hour later was still reading this clever, absorbing police procedural -- Jessica Mann * Literary Review *
Shaw's talent for sensuous storytelling comes to the fore as he sets this fourth book in the series in the summer of 1969 . . . A first rate drama. Shaw goes from strength to strength, while making it all seem effortless. -- Geoffrey Wansell * Daily Mail *
The debate about whether or not crime fiction should aspire to literary values rumbles on, but when a writer demonstrates a consummate use of language and can also incorporate the key imperative of the thriller - page-turning - it's a cause for celebration. William Shaw is in that select breed -- Barry Forshaw * Financial Times *
