Publisher Description

The tenth book in the Sunday Times-bestselling Inspector McLean series, from one of Scotland's most celebrated crime writers

When a member of the Police Scotland team fails to clock-in for work, concern for her whereabouts is immediate... and the discovery of her burnt-out car in remote woodland to the south of Edinburgh sets off a desperate search for the missing woman.

Meanwhile, DCI Tony McLean and the team are preparing for a major anti-corruption operation - one which may raise the ire of more than a few powerful people in the city. Is Anya Renfrew's disappearance a co-incidence or related to the case?

McLean's investigations suggest that perhaps that Anya isn't the first woman to have mysteriously vanished in these ancient hills. Once again, McLean can't shake the feeling that there is a far greater evil at work here...

Bury them deep

Inspector McLean has been asked to assist with a high profile corruption investigation, that is pointing to some of Scotland high profile people , however his investigation is thrown into turmoil before it has begun. One of the essential team members mysteriously disappears, leaving few clues to her whereabouts. What clues that do emerge, are of a member of staff, who in essence nobody really knew, who led a very sordid second life. McLean and his team are taken out of the city and into the heat sapping countryside to unearth secrets buried deep within a rural community.
Far better book than the last Maclean outing, good plot and a strong story, a good read.
