A Book of Scars combines nostalgic period detail with an emotional intensity found only in the very best crime fiction - Sunday TimesWilliam Shaw delivers a perfect motive in the third of his excellent Breen and Tozer mysteries . . . Shaw reminds us that 'brutality creates brutality', and this is true for every side of a conflict. The killer's explanatory speech, a bit perfunctory in most crime books, here unfolds a fascinatingly dark tale . . . This is a proper conspiracy thriller, with shameful secrets hidden behind government regulation. It involves real history, real people, real crimes with real consequences - SpectatorA Book of Scars is both a first-rate mystery and a compelling and accurate portrait of a changing society that is confused about the present and ill-at-ease with the past - Guardian
