Description

A gripping standalone thriller from the Sunday Times No.1 bestselling author of the Logan McRae series. Beware of the dark... Welcome to the Misfit Mob – where Police Scotland dumps the officers it can't get rid of, but wants to. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases. So when an ancient mummy is found at the Oldcastle tip, it's his job to track down its owner. But then Callum uncovers links between his mummified corpse and three missing young men, and life starts to get a lot more interesting. No one expects the Misfit Mob to solve anything, but right now they're all that stands between a killer's victims and a slow lingering death. Can they prove everyone wrong before someone else dies?

        Starred review from June 1, 2017

        DC Callum MacGregor is not happy. He has been assigned to an Oldcastle squad (nicknamed the Misfit Mob) composed of unwanted officers who can't be fired. Beleaguered MacGregor's woes include a pregnant girlfriend who may be responsible for his current assignment, his motley crew of colleagues, loss of his treasured wallet (which holds clues to his difficult past), and the lack of any interesting crimes to investigate. After a mummified body presumed to have been stolen from a museum turns up in the local dump, he is assigned the case. But when another mummy and a body in the early stages of mummification are discovered, it appears a bizarre serial killer is at work and the squad suddenly has a primo case. VERDICT This first stand-alone mystery since 2012 by the author of the best-selling "Logan McRae" (Cold Granite) and "Ash Henderson" (A Song for the Dying) series features the MacBride hallmarks: wickedly twisty plotting, superb use of British dialect, and dazzling displays of black humor.--ACT
