Summary

It's December, and the Shannon family are returning home to their clifftop mansion near Kinloch for their annual AGM. Shannon International is one of the world's biggest private companies, with tendrils reaching around the globe in computing, banking and mineral resourcing, and it has brought untold wealth and privilege to the family. However, a century ago Archibald Shannon stole the land upon which he built their home, and his descendants have been cursed ever since.
When heavy snow cuts off Kintyre, DCI Jim Daley and DS Brian Scott are assigned to protect their illustrious visitors. As an ancient society emerges from the blizzards, and its creation, the Rat Stone, reveals grisly secrets, ghosts of the past come to haunt the Shannons. As the curse decrees, death is coming. But for whom, and from what?

Not as good as previous books..still okay

I found it annoying that Daleys wife Liz has been left out of this instalment and Daley suddenly back with his colleague Mary...this seemed very out
of place with what I recall of the previous book..story okay very well performed..if u heard or read the previous prob worth a listen

MacMidsomer Madness

"Far-fetched" was a term used by one of the characters in this bizarre instalment of what has, hitherto, been a refreshing addition to the crime fiction scene.

Characterisation and development, such a strong element of the preceding novels, was cast aside in favour of over-complex and frankly incredible plotting; the last four hours of listening felt interminable.

'Phoned in' is an expression I believe is used to described lazy, formulaic Hollywood scripts and this one felt phoned-in.

After a pause, I think I will give the fifth novel a go but DCI Daley and his fellow island-dwellers are, as far as I'm concerned, on notice.
