Fin Macleod, now head of security on a privately owned Lewis estate, is charged with investigating a spate of illegal-game hunting taking place on the island. This mission reunites him with Whistler Macaskill - a local poacher, Fin's teenage intimate and possessor of a long-buried secret. But when this reunion takes a violent, sinister turn and Fin puts together the fractured pieces of the past, he realises that revealing the truth could destroy the future.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

The first in the McNamara series introduces the Scottish chief inspector in his rush to apprehend a serial killer who blends well with the people on Nightingale Street and most of the time makes the police run in circles. A scream wakes up everyone living on Nightingale Street and a body is found on the lawn of an older couple. This will unleash a series of events that will dig up secrets and will turn the peaceful suburban street into a living nightmare. People won't know where or who to turn to. General mistrust accompanies the man hunt.
