Reviews

PRAISE FOR WILLIAM SHAW AND THE BIRDWATCHER
"One of summer's chilliest thrillers... Shaw's prose still sinks its hooks in."--Entertainment Weekly
"Discreet, thoughtful prose... by its theatrical but moving conclusion, The Birdwatcher... [is] an excellent read."--USA Today
"William Shaw is, quite simply, an outstanding storyteller."--Peter May, Barry Award-winning author of the Lewis Trilogy
"Salt Lane is taut, terrifying and timely; the emotional tension never slackens."--Val McDermid
"William Shaw is one of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction. This is his best book to date, instantly engaging, beautifully written with really well observed and rounded characters."--Peter James
"Excellent....The combination of great characters and a gripping plot will leave readers eager for a sequel."--Publishers Weekly (starred review)
"DS Alexandra Cupidi is complex, conflicted, and conscientious... Shaw's rattling good writing will hold readers to the very end. Fans of the author's Breen and Tozer series as well as aficionados of atmospheric police procedurals will enjoy this series launch."--Library Journal
"Salt Lane was my introduction to William Shaw, and when I finished it I instantly went to his backlist. He is a meticulous, thoughtful and insightful writer. I can't wait for Sgt. Cupidi's next case."--Sara Paretsky
"Excellent.... Reverses readers' expectations: Rather than having all their roots in the distant past, these crimes have more to do with the evils and inequities of the modern world."--Tom Nolan, Wall Street Journal
"A modern crime master.... Shaw scores subtle political points in this atmospheric, state-of-the-nation thriller that, as always, features intricate plotting, realistic dialogue and believable characters."--Natasha Harding, The Sun (UK)
