Excerpt from Shamus Dust
The Audiobook of SHAMUS DUST will be released to reviewers in August along with the book and eBook. My thanks to John Reilly (CBS Radio, The Disney Channel and many others) whose reading captures the noir mood and rhythms beautifully. If you're a reviewer, please contact Matador's Sophie Morgan.
A modern wonder! Now you can listen to excerpts (as well as read them) on the SHAMUS DUST website. Click to hear John Reilly's private-eye narrator put you right in period from the get-go. A super recording too, with more excerpts being added as the audiobook progresses. Can't wait to hear how it ends!
Great excitement! The Audiobook is now in post-production, and the web site is ready for release. Also a message from John Reilly. Of his readiing of Newman, the private-eye who narrates Shamus Dust, he writes: "I really enjoyed taking on this character. I hope your readers (and listeners) like him as much as I do." Very many thanks, John, and all good wishes.
This is great - it’s elegant and spare but still cloaks itself in a terrific atmosphere. I liked the backstreet whores and the tipster barbers; the gold-leaf dining rooms and the tenement bedrooms. For me, it rang of Chandler - a grey-skied, British ‘Big Sleep’.

Janet Roger was apprehended for the first time at age three, on the lam from a strange new part of town. The desk sergeant looked stern, but found her a candy bar in his pocket anyway. Big mistake. He should have taken away her shoelaces. She's been on the run ever since.
