A Song from Dead Lips: the first book in the gritty Breen & Tozer series by William Shaw
FREE LOVE. DEADLY PRICE.
'A first-rate police thriller set amidst the seamy underside of the swinging sixties' C. J. Sansom
'A gripping story, impeccably researched' Guardian
A nameless young woman is found naked and strangled in an alley on Abbey Road.
DS Cathal Breen, an outcast in the Marylebone CID, struggles to make sense of the case.
Until new recruit WPC Helen Tozer - the first woman to join the team - makes a breakthrough.
And as hippies slam doors in their face, and locals suspect the new African neighbours, Breen and Tozer tread down a perilous path, closing in on a cruel conspiracy that goes far beyond class, colour and creed.
