Product description


An unalloyed pleasure - an intelligent, character-driven crime novel. - Andrew Taylor on COLD IN THE EARTH

It is always a pleasure to read Aline Templeton, but THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP must surely be her best book to date. Aline s characters are so beautifully drawn . . . - J Wallis Martin

A compelling read. - Margaret Yorke on COLD IN THE EARTH

'Loved it' - Val McDermid on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP

[Aline Templeton] has demonstrated that, just when we thought Scotland was saturated with detectives, a strong woman can elbow her way in and find a unique niche. - Scotsman on COLD IN THE EARTH

'A fascinating cast of possible villains is explored in this skilfully plotted and well-paced novel, each vividly described, entirely believable and never sliding into the usual parodies of country folk. But its real strength is DI Marjory Fleming, both tough and vulnerable as she struggles to track down the killer . . . This book is a delight, from its leisurely start to the moving and unexpected finish. Even better, it's the second in a series, so there's more pleasure to come.' - Guardian on THE DARKNESS AND THE DEEP

'In fictional terms the combination of domesticity and detection is very appealing, especially when it comes with a detailed, vivid portrayal of a complete society . . . an interesting, atmospheric and - I predict - televisual series.' -

Book Description

A fresh new female voice in police detective fiction for fans of Colin Dexter, PD James and Reginald Hill
