Reviews
"This outstanding novel is a reminder of the multiple joys of [a] police procedural with quirky characters, crisp dialog, and, in this case, a healthy dose of period detail. . . . Spread the word so that this satisfying debut will end up in the right hands."--Library Journal (starred)
"A fine start to what promises to be a rich new detective series"--Chicago Tribune
"A standout job . . . Keep an eye out for this dynamic duo. Whether you're a Beatles fan or a mystery lover, this book comes highly recommended."--BookPage
"A first-rate police thriller set amidst the seamy underside of the swinging sixties; a young girl's murder on a bleak housing estate near the Beatles' recording studio leads an intrepid police duo into a world of inter-generational quarrels, racial tensions, and arms dealing. The totemic year of '68 will never seem the same again."--CJ Sansom, author of the nationally bestselling Matthew Shardlake series and Winter in Madrid
"William Shaw's powerful debut novel is searing suspense and a haunting look at the 60's. Murder, politics, international intrigue-the brutal death of a young woman set against the dark background of Abbey Road. The dialogue is razor-sharp and the London scene is brilliantly authentic. SHE'S LEAVING HOME is thriller-writing at its best."--Linda Fairstein, New York Times-bestselling author of Death Game and Night Watch
