Created by Janet Roger
It’s 1947, World War II is over, it’s early Christmas morning and the snow is falling, and NEWMAN, an American ex-pat living in a post-war, post-Blitz London, still digging itself out from under the rubble, in Janet Roger’s ambitious, Chandler-leaning and much-acclaimed debut, Shamus Dust (2019).
Newman (no first name) has been in the U.K. for almost twenty years, and is currently working as a private eye, specializing in big money skullduggery in “The City,” London’s financial district. But lately, he hasn’t been sleeping well.
Then he gets a call from Drake, a city councilor, who wants him to perform what seems like a trivial task: deliver some keys to the local contables, who are cooling their heels, waiting to gain access to a property Drake owns in The City. Oh, and maybe minimize any negative publicity? It seems an “incident” has occurred.
