Publisher's Summary

The third installment in the best-selling DCI Daley series, packed with accurate police procedure and gritty, dark humour. The best of Scottish crime.
When a senior Edinburgh civil servant spectacularly takes his own life in Kinloch harbour, DCI Jim Daley comes face to face with the murky world of politics. To add to his woes, two local drug dealers lie dead, ritually assassinated. It's clear that dark forces are at work in the town. With his boss under investigation, his marriage hanging on by a thread, and his sidekick, DS Scott, wrestling with his own demons, Daley's world is in meltdown.
When strange lights appear in the sky over Kinloch, it becomes clear that the townsfolk are not the only people at risk. The fate of nations is at stake. Jim Daley must face his worst fears as tragedy strikes. This is not just about a successful investigation; it's about survival.

Excellent narrator

I enjoyed this book but I found some aspects annoying. I didn't think the main character's domestic situation was dealt with very well, it wasn't believable. It seemed to lack the emotional intensity that would have been present in those circumstances. In particular the decision to take his wife back with her child was badly written and lacked depth.

I found the plot rather predictable and it was obvious who would end up dead and who posed the threat. I don't think this was as good as the previous books but it was still a good book and the narrator was excellent.

Any additional comments?

Storyline and narration good, but I found it very confusing as there was no break between one scene and the next. When reading a book, you can see that the story has moved on to a new situation, but when listening you are relying on a pause or a change of voice to allow your brain to adjust. In this narration, there is absolutely nothing to give a clue that things have moved from one scenario to the next.
