William Shaw writes the critically acclaimed Breen and Tozer crime fiction series. Set in London in 1968-9 they include She's Leaving Home and The Kings of London, which The New York Times called "an elegy for an entire neglected generation". The Sunday Times has called them "a superb series of crime novels." The third, A Song for The Brokenhearted will be followed in 2017 by The Birdwatcher, a standalone novel.

Before writing fiction, William Shaw was the author of several non-fiction books including Westside, about a year spent with the young men of South Central Los Angeles, and A Superhero For Hire, a compilation of columns in the Observer Magazine.
