The Dead Demand Vengeance . . . 

A compelling novel in the bestselling Inspector McLean series.

A truck driver loses control in central Edinburgh, ploughing into a crowded bus stop and spilling his vehicle's toxic load. The consequences are devastating.

DI Tony McLean witnesses the carnage. Taking control of the investigation, he soon realises there is much that is deeply amiss - and everyone involved seems to have something to hide.

But as McLean struggles to uncover who caused the tragedy, a greater crisis develops: the new Chief Superintendent's son is missing, last seen in the area of the crash . . .

External Reviews

"This is a great and gripping read, with its compelling multiple threads in a narrative that carries a growing sense of menace and darkness whilst incorporating the supernatural without verging on the ridiculous. Sadly, the desperately dark ending will have McLean having to bear extra burdens for the future. Highly recommended series!"

"What an exceptional series this is, one of my very favourites, and this is a fine addition to it. But blimey is it dark . . ."

"Detective Inspector Tony McLean is one of the most original and likeable detectives in crime fiction and I always enjoy getting re-acquainted with him and his usual sidekicks: Grumpy Bob Laird, Janie Harrison, Jayne McIntyre, Charles Duguid, Madame Rose and, not forgetting, Mrs McCutcheon’s Cat."
