'Big treat in store for fans. And if you're not a fan yet, why not?' Val McDermid
'William Shaw is one of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction' Peter James

London 1969: A detective in love. A crime of passion

The devil: She made a profit from rich men. They paid for her youth. She paid with her life.

The angel: To investigate the prostitute's murder, DS Cathal Breen isn't scared to question powerful suspects.

The fall: But when a mysterious man from MI6 calls, Breen begins to fear he's uncovered a spy scandal.

And then Breen's girlfriend Helen Tozer, with her ex-copper instincts, gets dangerously involved. Right or wrong, Breen knows he has too much to lose. He can have no sympathy for the devil.

Review:

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)

Book Description:

In the fourth Breen & Tozer, William Shaw marries a gripping police procedural with an espionage plot to bring the series to a stunning and moving climax

Book Description Paperback. Condition: new. Paperback. '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 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. Breen begins to fear that this is more than the murder of a prostitute. It's political. Then Helen, with her ex-copper's instincts and fierce moral sense, gets dangerously involved. 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. Breen and Tozer met through murder. They work in a world before forensics or criminal databases; a world that's bigoted and brutal. Tense, dramatic and ingeniously plotted, SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL is a gripping police thriller that delivers crime with a conscience. In the fourth Breen & Tozer, William Shaw marries a gripping police procedural with an espionage plot to bring the series to a stunning and moving climax Shipping may be from multiple locations in the US or from the UK, depending on stock availability.
