Mar 19, Sarah rated it it was amazing Shelves: crime-procedural , netgalley. The closer I get to the 7th book the more I want to savour reading each one but can't put them down and end up devouring them, to me that shows how good this series is, some book series I can put down and not pick up again for months, this one, refuses to do that the more I get into it!!
It all builds together well and melds into another great story. Love it.

The 5th in the Inspector McLean series and my 5th. Dalgliesh, that reporter that no officer trusts least of all Tony, needs his help in finding her coworker Ben Stevenson. It seems he's just gone and no one at the reporters office knows where to. This takes Tony into a realm of hidden chambers beneath the city and a ritualistic murder, but is all this ritualism as it really seems or just a cover What lies behind this murder?
McLean comes home after another busy unending paperwork day of investigation to a knock on the door. It's Madame Rose and she's not her his usual self at all. Her clothes are disheveled, she's more than just downcast and that's just the beginning. It seems someone or possibly more than one person are doing their best to drive Madame rose out of her establishment. This was another superb installation in the McLean series and I was thrilled to read it. DS Ritchie has a new development in her life that turns into something catastrophic.
However the greatest development is the reveal of Madame Rose's premonition for Tony If you're one of the few that hasn't started this series View 2 comments. As much as I enjoyed listening to the fifth book in this series was I'm not really pleased with the narrator choice to whisper the killer's thoughts. It just sounded like he was mumbling and I was lucky if I could hear a word or two and understand what the heck the killer was doing. But, this was not the strongest book in the series.
The best part was towards the end when the story finally started to make sense. But, for the most part, the book did feel a bit slow, more bodies are found and they are trying to figure out the link between the bodies and discover who the killer is. Personally, would I loved the book to be more thrilling to read. To be honest, the story just didn't feel very memorable. On a side now, I loved Madame Rose and her cats. Despite my lackluster opinion of the book, I do look forward to reading the next book, and the one before that I've missed to read.
I want to thank the publisher for providing me with a free copy through Netgalley for an honest review! Mar 22, Sharon Mccall rated it it was amazing.

Prayer (Salat): According to Five Islamic Schools of Law Part 1
With no forensics to go on, more bodies turning up that may or may not be connected you would think Tony would have enough on his plate. Then Madam Rose, transvestite fortunte teller, appears at his door and asks for his help as she believes she is a target by people unknown - they have already dropped crap through her letterbox and killed one of her cats. Tony McLean has to deal with all this, the clashing personalities at work and trying to keep his re-built car in one piece. We also get a little look at Tony's childhood which he spent being raised by his grandmother and eventually this ties in with the case he is working on - as someone says the past defines us and sometimes it still affects how we are.
These are such easy to read books, the story flows well and as we are getting to know the characters, I personally look forward to seeing how Oswald continues to develop their personalities in books to come. I like a book that gets me thinking and this one, even though I have read others that have been written since Scotland became a one police force, one fire service country, got me wondering how these changes have affected those who write Scottish crime novels.
Definitely worth a read if you have read the others if not I suggest you start at the beginning - you will not be disappointed!! View all 10 comments. A serial killer take with a lot of interesting aspects - but none of them are fully explained in a rather unsatisfactory ending. This is the first of the series I've read, and that made things difficult at times. Elements of backstory are dropped in with no explanation, so this is a series definitely best read in order. DI Tony McLean is a good character with plenty of nuance.
He works hard, perhaps obsessing, and has some lovely humerus comments on his colleagues and superiors. The case develop A serial killer take with a lot of interesting aspects - but none of them are fully explained in a rather unsatisfactory ending. The case develops as the bodies pile up, but the plot relies on far too many coincidences.
I have a feeling that I'll look back on my rating of this book and think it too harsh. That said, I don't think I'd ever read it again so I couldn't rate it higher or as a must read. I enjoyed this novel as much as I disliked it. I liked the familiarity of the characters, the funny quips and jibes between the ranking officers and the general pace of the story. But equally the storylines are often over complex for what is required and there's far too much 'faff' in between key scenes.
For every loo I have a feeling that I'll look back on my rating of this book and think it too harsh. For every loose end tied up in this novel there's another being unraveled and you just know there's going to be another 7 books before you see that loop tied. For me Oswald is a safe and reliable read but I rate his earlier books much higher than this effort.
Once again an amazingly good novel from Mr Oswald. I really love the juxtaposition between the science and the paranormal in his books. I am one of those people that loves hard facts and needs to know how things work but sometimes, just sometimes, I can see that it's not quite as simple as that and these books do bring out that "other side" to things.
There's not really much more that I can say as I never do reviews in the way of explaining what happens, I tend to leave that to people who can wri Once again an amazingly good novel from Mr Oswald. There's not really much more that I can say as I never do reviews in the way of explaining what happens, I tend to leave that to people who can write so much more eloquently than me, so I suppose I'm just going to have to wait 6 months or more until the next book which I eagerly anticipate and once again will no doubt put on pre-order so I'll review it as soon as it's released!
