I started this book last night, only to realise I have all ready read it. But no worries, it refreshed my memory ready for the next book. I'm trying to play catch up on some of the series of books I have so this is my next series to catch up on.
Dead Men's Bones is the fourth novel in James Oswald's phenomenal Inspector Mclean series set in Edinburgh.
But it is the first one I have read. i can safely say I will now be reading book 1,2 and 3.
I didn't feel like I couldn't follow things or follow the plot by not having read the previous books, but I enjoyed this one so much I want to read the others.
The book starts off with Detective Tony Mclean at the scene where the body of a naken man has been found by a local walking his dog.
Then there is a shooting at a farm house. It turns out that A MSP has killed his 2 children, his wife and then himself.
This is where Mclean begins his investigations into what has actually happened, he's told to do what he always does- dig deeper than is really necessary and complicate things- and that is exactly what he does.
It seems though that someone somewhere is trying to cover up, some want the case closed and forgotten about. Yet others want the truth out.
Can Mclean find out exactly what happened before any more bodies turn up. Or is is this just the beginning of what can only be a long journey to the truth.
Brilliantly written and thoroughly enjoyable. I enjoyed every part of this book.
A family lies slaughtered in an isolated house in North East Fife . . .
Morag Weatherly and her two young daughters have been shot by husband Andrew, an influential politician, before he turned the gun on himself.
But what would cause a rich, successful man to snap so suddenly?
For Inspector Tony McLean, this apparently simple but high-profile case leads him into a world of power and privilege. And the deeper he digs, the more he realises he's being manipulated by shadowy factions.
Under pressure to wrap up the case, McLean instead seeks to uncover layers of truth - putting the lives of everyone he cares about at risk . . .
