Publisher's Summary

When Amy MacKenzie agrees to attend a meeting at a local spiritualist church, the last person she expects to hear calling to her from beyond the grave is her son. The son whom she'd only spoken to an hour before.

First book first rate!

Having been lost in the wilderness of boring books for a while it was fantastic to find a wee gem!
Had not heard of this author so I assumed that this is the first book well it's a belter.
The narrator was great and I will be looking for more by her.
The story centres on newly promoted DI McNab whose first case in the rank is a series of murders which appear to be an online game with a Druid backdrop. His love life is complicated but he clearly has links to the forensics specialist Rhona and the sexual tension between them adds an interesting dimension.
I loved the main characters and hope this is the start of a new Scottish detective series.
I also enjoyed the spiritualist angle which gave the story a paranormal spin not unlike Oswald's books Natural Causes etc
This is five star give it a go!

A thrilling listen

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, as the plot twists and turns. A great opening.


Have you listened to any of Sally Armstrong’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First time I have heard Sally but perfect narration


Any additional comments?

One of the both opening chapters ever, where dead son communicates with his mother and she is unaware he is dead.....was sold then hook line and sinker ! Enjoyed the archeology
