Salt Lane by William Shaw

No-one knew their names, the bodies found in the water.  There are people here, in plain sight, that no-one ever notices at all.

DS Alexandra Cupidi has done it again.  She should have learnt to keep her big mouth shut, after the scandal that sent her packing – resentful teenager in tow – from the London Met to the lonely Kent coastline.  Even murder looks different in this landscape of fens, ditches and stark beaches, shadowed by the towers of Dungeness power station.  Murder looks a lot less pretty.

The man drowned in the slurry pit had been herded there like an animal.  He was North African, like many of the fruit pickers that work the fields.  The more Cupidi discovers, the more she wants to ask – but these people are suspicious of questions.

It will take an understanding of this strange place – its old ways and new crimes – to uncover the dark conspiracy behind the murder.  Cupidi is not afraid to travel that road.  But she should be.  She should, by now, have learnt.

Salt Lane is the first in the new DS Alexandra Cupidi series.  With his trademark characterisation and flair for social commentary, William Shaw has crafted a crime novel for our time that grips you, mind and heart.

Peer & Press Reviews

William Shaw is one of the great rising talents of UK crime fiction.  This is his best book to date, instantly engaging, beautifully written with really well observed and rounded characters.

Peter James

Cupidi is one of my current favourite crime fiction police characters.  Shaw writes female characters and tackles the issues around motherhood so well.  A page-turning police procedural with a thoughtful, character-driven heart, an astounding sense of place, and a quirky sense of humour.

Julia Crouch, author of Her Husband’s Lover

Salt Lane is taut, terrifying and timely; the emotional tension never slackens.

Val McDermid
