The Book of Souls, the second electrifying thriller in the Detective Inspector McLean series by James Oswald

Wednesday 26 June, 7pm at Carnegie Library,Ayr

James Oswald is the author of the Inspector McLean series of detective mysteries. The first of these, Natural Causes and the follow up The Book of Souls have both been short-listed for the prestigious CWA Debut Dagger Award.

Set in an Edinburgh not so different to the one we all know, Detective Inspector Tony McLean is the unlucky policeman who can see beneath the surface of ordinary criminal life to the dark, menacing evil that lurks beneath.

Every year for ten years, a young woman’s body was found in Edinburgh at Christmas time: naked, throat slit, body washed clean.

Ten years, ten women.

The final victim, Kirsty Summers, was Detective Constable Tony McLean’s fiancée. But the Christmas Killer made a mistake. In a cellar under a shop, McLean found a torture chamber and put an end to the brutal killing spree. Twelve years later, and a fellow prisoner has just murdered the incarcerated Christmas Killer. But with the arrival of the festive season comes a body. A young woman: naked, washed, her throat cut.
