Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of The Gathering Dark by James Oswald, read by Ian Hanmore.
A truck driver loses control in central Edinburgh, ploughing into a crowded bus stop and spilling his vehicle's toxic load. The consequences are devastating.
DI Tony McLean witnesses the carnage. Taking control of the investigation, he soon realises there is much that is deeply amiss - and everyone involved seems to have something to hide.
But as McLean struggles to uncover who caused the tragedy, a second crisis develops: the new Chief Superintendent's son is missing, last seen in the area of the crash....
Brilliantly plotted and utterly compelling, this is the gripping new novel in the best-selling Inspector McLean series.

Darkness continues...

I think Tony could cut a break at this stage-good story and excellent narration, but a bit of happiness is long overdue....come on Mr Oswald!

Warmly Supernatural!

Another quality episode in a series which delivers a real hard edge of the modern world alongside whispers of the creepy supernatural while somehow wrapping them up in a cuddly blanket. There are true elements of horror here but with devices like Madame Rose and Mrs McCutcheon's cat as well as the warmth invested in his characters Oswald achieves an excellent balance.

Of course some of that warmth comes from the deliciously smooth tones of Ian Hanmore who will surely always be the voice of Tony McLean and company. His is a voice I could, in fact have, listened to for hours.

I wouldn't say it is always as intense as some of the earlier books but it's very engaging throughout and the various parts of the ending draw it together very impressively. In fact for anyone who is invested in these characters it doesn't just drift off it delivers a smart punch to the jaw to jolt you out of any complacency and leaves you wanting the next book to come quickly!
