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.

I'm not sure who's more stupid, me for sticking with it until the end or the author who must have spent more time writing it,.

John Sagan is a forgettable man. You could pass him in the street and not realise he's there. But then, that's why he's so dangerous. A torturer for hire, Sagan has terrorised - and mutilated - countless victims. And now he's on the move. DS Mark 'Heck' Heckenburg must chase the trail, even when it leads him to his hometown of Bradburn - a place he never thought he'd set foot in again. But Sagan isn't the only problem. Bradburn is being terrorised by a lone killer who burns his victims to death.

I was surprised at how clichéd and dated this book sounded, perhaps it might have been better if read in book format - but I doubt it, The narration was awful, especially the female voices and regional accents - so basically all the different voices. I'm sad to have wasted my monthly credit on this audio book. I found myself hoping that Heck would get killed in a particularly ghastly manner so that should give you an idea of how annoying the main character is. Sadly I can't find one good thing to say about this book
