    The murder of a media moghul in his country mansion appears to be the result of him disturbing a gang of would-be thieves. The robbers are swiftly caught, but when they are unexpectedly moved to a different prison they escape. Back in Edinburgh, a young solicitor reveals to the press that one of the subjects had left a letter with her some time before the break-in which proves his innocence.

    brilliant! Again!

    usual convoluted story all neatly packaged at the end. A great listen narrator brilliant

    Jack Parlabane is an investigative journalist who is not averse to breaking the law for a good story. Scottish parliament is in catatonic shock after experiencing its first dose of Westminster sleaze and the Catholic Church of Scotland is taking advantage of the politicians' discomfort. Behind the scenes the truth is obscured. Aware he's missing out on a great story; Parlabane discovers that contacts and a way with words is no defence against people he has helped to put away.

    You can't miss a bit

    In some books you can miss a second but in this one you have to go back and listen again to keep up with the detail.
    Being Scottish helps.

    It was a junket, a freebie. A 'team-building' weekend in the highlands for lawyers, advertising execs, businessmen, even the head of a charity. Oh, and a journalist, specially solicited for his renowned and voluble scepticism - Jack Parlabane. Amid the flying paintballs and flowing Shiraz even the most cynical admit the organisers have pulled some surprises - stalkers in the forest, power cuts in the night, mass mobile phone thefts, disappearing staff, disappearing guests.

    Outrageous story, but you loved it all the same

    Great characterisations superbly narrated by Angus King. I've never switched my view point on characters so often, from outright hatred to deep felt s..Show More »

    Do we really live on in some conscious form after we die, and is that form capable of communicating with the world of the living? "Aye, right..." was journalist Jack Parlabane's stance on the matter. But this was before he found himself in the compromising position of being not only dead himself but dead with an exclusive still to file. One thing he knows for certain: death is not the end - it's the ultimate undercover assignment.

    ANOTHER GREAT STORY

    Everything from the title is excellent. This author is just so good at storytelling. We are racing through his books so I do hope he writes more.
