Description

With rising excitement, he got to his feet and began to scrape the thick moss from the large, flat granite surface. The story feels clunky in places, either as a result of the author using multiple unnecessarily complex words, through overly detailed descriptions of simple everyday – for the characters, if not the audience – actions and events, and then, in some places, overuse of the same word in the same or consecutive sentences. He's not just after the criminals: he knows that there are those on his own side who are working hard to thwart his efforts.

When the head of one of Scotland’s most notorious crime families is found brutally murdered, the police are bound to be in for a rough ride, as DS Max Craigie and DC Janie Calder soon discover.This is a good, solid police procedural with a likeable main character and an equally likeable bag carrier. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. This is a scintillating and compulsively readable procedural with a complex, thrill-a-minute plot and nail-biting tension running throughout.

A missing person enquiry leads DS Max Craigie and DC Janie Calder to an ancient and abandoned burial ground, by the remains of an old chapel, located in a very remote spot in the Scottish Highlands. The plotting is clear sighted and logical with little room for misunderstanding or ambiguity (not always a given).He served as a military policeman in the RAF and worked as a detective for the Metropolitan Police, investigating serious crimes in the capital and beyond. He has been killed with a 200 year old cutlass, as part of a blood feud that goes back to the 19th century, from its beginnings in 1830, Tam Jnr, as the eldest of Hardie's 3 sons, is the new head of their criminal empire, with his brothers, Frankie and Davie as the enforcers. I liked that the most unexpected of characters stepped up and that even those who perhaps should have been most vulnerable were not painted as mere victims.
