When a skeleton is discovered hidden at the top of a crumbling, gothic building in Edinburgh, Detective Chief Inspector Karen Pirie is faced with the unenviable task of identifying the bones. As Karen's investigation gathers momentum, she is drawn deeper into a dark world of intrigue and betrayal.

Meanwhile, someone is taking the law into their own hands in the name of justice and revenge -- but when present resentment collides with secrets of the past, the truth is more shocking than anyone could have imagined . . .

An atmospheric, chilling mystery from the number one bestseller.

Absolutely cracking read!

A slow start builds into an informed and thought provoking story that has gripped me to the end. It encouraged me to read more on the conflicts and I've finished the book with a deeper understanding of the world and what has gone before. Highly recommended reading.

Brilliant

Thought provoking, tells a story that goes behind the news we see on our screens. How can we ever understand the hatred that separates one 'tribe' from another. This book is not easy to put down.

Disappointing

Way too much like a moral history lesson with a plot tagged on.
