Summary

A killer is on the loose....

The Scottish Hebrides - Inspector Torquil McKinnon has returned to the remote Scottish island of West Uist to devastating news. His closest friend, Constable Ewan McPhee, is missing, presumed dead. 

When more bodies are found in suspicious circumstances, it is clear a serial killer is at large. 

Tensions are high, and paranoia is rife. 

Can Torquil restore peace to the tight-knit community? Will he find out what happened to Constable McPhee? Or will he too fall prey to the depraved murderer?

Oh dear

I had pre-ordered this one so was particularly disappointed when I started to listen and realised that it's just not very good. Imagine Monarch of the Glen crossed with River City...stereotypical nasty land owner and bumbling crofters. The story is told through a vast array of different characters, none of whom I found I had any interest in. The Anne Cleeve Shetland novels have such a strong sense of place that I can imagine myself there and always make me want to visit. This imaginery corner of the Western Isles seems dreary and unreal. It's going back.
