Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable, audiobook edition of Prayer for the Dead, from the best-selling Inspector McLean series by Sunday Times best-selling author James Oswald, read by Ian Hanmore.
Are you ready to be reborn? The search for a missing journalist is called off as a body is found at the scene of a carefully staged murder. In a sealed chamber, deep in the heart of Gilmerton Cove, a mysterious network of caves and passages sprawling beneath Edinburgh, the victim has undergone a macabre ritual of purification.
Inspector Tony McLean knew the dead man, and can't shake off the suspicion that there is far more to this case than meets the eye. The baffling lack of forensics at the crime scene seems impossible. But it is not the only thing about this case that McLean will find beyond belief.
Teamed with the most unlikely and unwelcome of allies, he must track down a killer driven by the darkest compulsions, who will answer only to a higher power...
Are you ready for the mysteries to be revealed?

Another great book in the series

Another excellent book in the series excellently narrated as usual!

I do think they need to be read in order as there are lots of references to previous stories and McLean's background.

Hope there are more and read by Ian Hanmore- he is up there in my top 2 of narrators with Sean Barrett!

Nearly as good but not quite

I'm a genuine fan of what James Oswald has done with this series and I think that in Ian Hanmore he has paired up with a stylish narrator perfectly suited to the stories. The characters are easy to identify with and "Grumpy Bob" never ceases to put a smile on my face. This story though didn't engage me as much as the previous ones and while still enjoyable I hope for a stronger and more gripping plot next time. Still well worth a read and while I think I can imagine why people found the whispering irritating I think it was a good touch and added the right creepy notes. A matter of taste!
