Summary

The brutal murder of 10-year-old Callum Bradley sent shockwaves across Scotland, but as the weeks have stretched on with no solid leads, the investigation has been scaled back. Sergeant Don Colyear, community police officer, is tasked with tying up a loose end: a 999 call which may have hinted at the boy's murder.

However, the call was made three weeks before the crime took place. The caller turns out to be a resident at an Edinburgh care home, drifting in and out of lucidity due to dementia - enough to write off the potential lead as a dead end. But when a fresh murder disturbs the city, the clock is ticking path to catch a violent killer.

Draws you in with realism

Love the initial slow meandering pace that lulls you into a false sense of all being well. Like the previous and first in the series this starts off with a hint of the grisly to come. If you like realistic crime stories this series is for you. An unassuming protagonist with hidden qualities and talents gradually emerging.
Looking forward to more from Don Colyear.

Excellent!

I have listened to books 1 and 2, and can't wait for 3,4,5 etc. Tragically inept and brilliant all at the same time, mixed with a little attitude, sarcasm and, yes, a little creepiness, makes this guy hard not to like. The narrator, Mr. Monteath, brings everything to life brilliantly. Give this new series a listen. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
