William Shaw

The Trawlerman

Published by: Quercus, Riverrun

In spare, understated, precise yet propulsive prose, convincing characters and interwoven plots play out against the brooding backdrop of the south Kent coast. The sense of place makes Dungeness almost as much of a character as the vividly drawn women at the heart of this atmospheric and intricate mystery.
