Salt Lane is an exciting and thought-provoking read, the first in William Shaw’s new series of crime thrillers set on the Kent coastline in the shadow of Dungeness.

The narrative swings from past to future and observes the concerns shared by all humans about family and life in general. An uplifting story in the end.
