Description

The gripping new crime thriller in the highly acclaimed Inspector McLean series

A truck driver loses control in central Edinburgh, ploughing into a crowded bus stop and spilling his vehicle's toxic load. The consequences are devastating.

DI Tony McLean witnesses the carnage. Taking control of the investigation, he soon realises there is much that is deeply amiss - and everyone involved seems to have something to hide.

But as McLean struggles to uncover who caused the tragedy, a greater crisis develops: the new Chief Superintendent's son is missing, last seen in the area of the crash...

Brilliantly plotted and utterly compelling, this is the gripping new novel in the bestselling Inspector McLean series.

  • A very good read

    An excellent weaving of complex plots will delight those who have followed our hero through previous adventures. I really enjoy the tinges of supernatural that occasionally colour the narrative. All in all, a good addition to the series and a must read.
