  • Inspector McLean returns in the seventh instalment of James Oswald's gritty, compelling crime series, for his most mysterious murder investigation yet . . .

    The roots of murder run deep . . .

    When a body is found in a tree in The Meadows, Edinburgh's scenic parkland, the forensics suggest the corpse has fallen from a great height.

    Detective Inspector Tony McLean wonders whether it was an accident, or a murder designed to send a chilling message?
