Product description


Forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod has become one of the most satisfying characters in modern crime fiction ― honourable, inquisitive and yet plagued by doubts and, sometimes, fears . . . As ever, the landscape is stunningly evoked and MacLeod’s decency and humanity shine through on every page ― Daily Mail

The best Scottish crime series since Rebus ― Daily Record

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

Hugely imaginative and exciting -- James Grieve (Emeritus Professor of Forensic Pathology)

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

Anderson is a master story teller; her books are always incredibly well researched and her story lines resonate with her understanding of contemporary issues and the politics of expediency ― Live and Deadly


Forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod digs up secrets from the past in the fifteenth novel in Lin Anderson’s forensic crime series.
