Another Tartan Noir writer. Does so much crime happen in civilised Edinburgh? Wasn't sure about the occult element in this book at first but I think in the end Mr Oswald carried it off. I liked the background story of Insp McLean woven into the body of the plot. I liked the the fact that he is a "nice " young man. The reader had a rather monotone voice whic at first I didn't like but it grew on me. if you can't drop of at night he has a very soothing ,almost hypnotic tone. Persevere with this one if you don't quite take to it at first. I am looking forward to the next one.

An excellent, gripping book. I really enjoyed the fact the lead detective was not the usual run of the mill. The story kept me held right to the last page/listen!

Waiting on Audible to release 'dead men's bones' . book4.
There are a couple of stories running through this series and they can be read or heard separately.
Not brilliant 5 stars at this time, though I expect that if the series continue with the same reader, the series may rank high 4 or 5.
Forget any Ian Rankin references from the reviewers/publishers.I am beginning to think quite a few reviewers are illiterate. (And have no idea why there will only ever be one Ian Rankin.) I get a tad sus whenever I read silly remarks like,,the new ,, etc.
On the surface there is a fairly preictable plot, a current day Batman with an Alpha and a few good fellas and girls. Then read on.
No shrinking rooms or damsels tied to railway tracks yet,
