Product description


All in all this is a scintillating read, and whether you are already an Anderson fan or have never picked up one of her books I would recommend spending some time with Follow The Dead – though you might need a blanket handy to deal with the chills ― Scotsman

Shades of The Wicker Man, with a touch of Agatha Christie. Superb ― Daily Mail

The bleak landscape is beautifully described, giving this popular series a new lease of life ― The Sunday Times

Lin Anderson is one of Scotland's national treasures - don't be fooled by comparisons, her writing is unique, bringing warmth and depth to even the seediest parts of Glasgow. Lin's Rhona MacLeod is a complex and compelling heroine who just gets better with every outing -- Stuart MacBride

An outstanding thriller . . . The pace is beautifully judged, and though there are plenty of twists and turns, the reader never feels left behind ― Undiscovered Scotland

Perfectly paced and with alternating narratives – including that of the merciless, shadowy killer – Follow the Dead is a true thriller-chiller, and an enthralling read for both seasoned fans and newcomers to the work of this talented author ― Lancashire Post
