About this ebook

One of the Scotsman's Books of 2018

When Professor Francombe and her team of archaeologists find the remains of three women on a remote Kintyre hillside – a site rumoured to have been the base of Viking warlord Somerled – their delight soon turns to horror when they realise the women tragically met their end little more than two decades ago. It soon becomes clear that these are the three missing victims of the 'Midweek Murderer', a serial killer who was at work in Glasgow in the early 1990s.

DCI Jim Daley now has the chance to put things right – to confront a nightmare from his past and solve a crime he failed to as a young detective. However, when Police Scotland's Cold Case Unit arrive, they bring yet more ghosts to Kinloch.

A tale of death, betrayal, Viking treasure and revenge set in the thin places where past, present and future collide.

the old brain cells nearly lost the plot with this one on the many different stages during reading. the constant flipbacks to 1994 then the present both with the same characters, thematic content made me turn the pages back to make sure what period I was in. But it's a testament to the authors brilliant control of his plots and sub plots and the realism of the characters portrayed that he keeps us hooked on needing to go on and on. Over the last 6 months of reading his Daley/Scott novels I have never had so much enjoyment in feeling being a part of the local colour, the geography and above all the history of this part of Scotland....and this from an old guy who's from a South Wales town where one of the ancillary characters is originally from! Thanks DM .....true intrigue, mystery and characterisation, pure enjoyment
