The Kings of London

The Kings of London by William Shaw continues the story of Detectives Breen and Tozer, set in late 1960’s London. Two burned bodies start the police on a search for the killer of a politician’s son. Every time the answers to the questions get tantalizingly close, well-connected and powerful people who would be hurt by the truth thwart the detectives. A strong sense of place and vivid writing keep all the balls in the air and deliver a chilling climax.
