Publisher Description

The heart-pounding first installment of the MacNeice Mysteries, featuring a sophisticated detective solving the horrific murder of a beautiful young violinist — perfect for fans of Peter Robinson’s Alan Banks series.

Detective Superintendent MacNeice is returning from a pilgrimage to his wife’s grave when he’s called to a crime scene of singular and disturbing beauty. A young woman in evening dress lies gracefully posed on the floor of a pristine summer cottage so that the finger of one hand regularly interrupts the needle arm of a phonograph playing Schubert’s Piano Trio. The only visible mark on her is the bruise under her chin, which MacNeice recognizes: it is the mark that distinguishes dedicated violinists, the same mark that once graced his wife. The murder is both ingenious and horrific, and soon entangles MacNeice and his team in Eastern Europe’s ancient grievances…

Complex and Fascinating

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley to read in exchange for a fair review. Erasing Memory is the first book in Scott Thornley’s MacNeice Mystery series. There are two other book in the series now and I think a fourth one is coming out soon. I should also mention I own the book both as an actual book and the ebook (2) plus I’ve given it as a gift. I really like this book. Detective Superintendent MacNeice is a complex and fascinating character and so is the mystery that he is trying to solve. This book will keep you up reading long past your bedtime with all the twists and turns. Fantastic book in a wonderful series. #ErasingMemory #NetGalley
