About Me

My love affair with books, like most, started at an early age and is never ending. My book reading preferences have changed over the years and I look forward to sharing my varied reading tastes with you. You will find a lot of Crime Fiction (a penchant for Scottish Crime writers features a lot.) and also I love reading non fiction History. Hopefully you will find some new authors and new favourites to continue your own reading journey. ENJOY!

Having enjoyed the previous three books in the D.I Tony McLean series I thought I would review the fourth, "Dead Men's Bones" having just finished reading.

D.I Tony McLean is called on to investigate a prominent politician who has killed his wife and young children and then himself. What seems like a straight forward suicide soon throws up some unusual circumstances and our trusty D.I believes there is more than meets the eye in this case. Meanwhile the body of a naked tattooed man has been found which brings another puzzling case to the desk of McLean and his team of  PC MacBride (a homage to fellow author Stuart MacBride perhaps?) and DS Grumpy Bob Laird.
The characters in this series of books are really engaging and in each book you learn more of their story. I really liked this book and I am slowly coming around to the supernatural aspects that Oswald weaves into his stories, but I was disappointed in the ending unfortunately. A few unanswered questions and it seemed a little rushed. Overall a great read and I will still continue with the series
