The dead don't always rest in peace . . . Discover the gripping first thriller in the Inspector McLean series

For fans of Ian Rankin, Peter James and Stuart MacBride

'A gripping, captivating page-turner' 5***** READER REVIEW
'Murder, malevolence and great detection'
'Grips you from the very beginning'

Edinburgh is horrified by a series of bloody killings.

Deaths for which there appears to be neither rhyme nor reason, and which leave the city's police stumped.

DI Tony McLean is focused on the investigation, but his attention is drawn by a chilling cold case:

A young girl, ritualistically murdered.

Her remains hidden for sixty years.

It seems impossible that there could be any connection between the cases, but McLean starts to wonder . . .

Because if it's true, they might be facing an evil beyond anything they ever imagined.
