Detective Chief Inspector Roberta Steel got caught fitting up Jack Wallace - that's why they demoted her and quashed his sentence. Now he's back on the streets, and women are being attacked again. Wallace has to be responsible, but if Detective Sergeant Steel goes anywhere near him, his lawyers will get her thrown off the force for good. The Powers That Be won't listen to her, not after what happened last time. According to them, she's got more than enough ongoing cases to keep her busy.

Welcome to the Misfit Mob... It's where Police Scotland dumps the officers it can't get rid of but wants to: the outcasts, the troublemakers, the compromised. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases. So when an ancient mummy turns up at the Oldcastle tip, it's his job to find out which museum it's been stolen from. But then Callum uncovers links between his ancient corpse and three missing young men, and life starts to get a lot more interesting.

What made the experience of listening to A Dark So Deadly the most enjoyable?

The usual narrator from Steve Macbrides other books. Made it a continuous flow from Logan. The small references to other character should from the previous book was great. I thought l had solved it numerous times but ohh no.

Who was your favorite character and why?

DC macgregor and also Mother.

What about Steve Worsley’s performance did you like?

Fantastic

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes. I was saving it to listen to on my holidays but could not wait.

Any additional comments?

When is the next one.
