The roots of murder run deep . . .
When a body is found in a tree in The Meadows, Edinburgh's scenic parkland, forensics suggest the corpse has fallen from a great height.
Which makes Detective Inspector Tony McLean ask the question: was it an accident, or a murder designed to send a chilling message? . . .
As McLean traces the victim's journey, it takes him back to Edinburgh's past, and through its underworld - crossing paths with some of its most dangerous and most vulnerable people.
And waiting at the end of it all, is the truth behind a crime that cuts to the very heart of the city . . .
PRAISE FOR THE INSPECTOR McLEAN SERIES
'Oswald's writing is in a class above most' Daily Express
'Creepy, gritty and gruesome' Sunday Mirror
'Hugely enjoyable' Mirror
'Oswald is among the leaders of excellent Scottish crime writers' Daily Mail
Interesting storyline. The protagonist keeps losing his car, perhaps he needs a tank. I keep loving the protagonist and all his support cast. Good writing. I would still like to have some of the supernatural elements fleshed out more. I am enjoying this series.
