Publisher's Summary

The most violent thunderstorm in living memory occurs above a sleepy village on the West Coast of Scotland. A young couple take shelter in the woods, never to be seen again....

DCI Jack Russell is brought in to investigate. Nearing retirement, he agrees to undertake one last case, which he believes can be solved as a matter of routine. But what Jack discovers in the forest leads him to the conclusion that he is following in the footsteps of a psychopath who is just getting started.

Excellent!

As a reader, I really love a mystery that is well-crafted and keeps the reader guessing right to the very end. ‘A Murder Of Crows’ is one such book, and I find myself unable to recommend it highly enough.

Delusion and illusion obscure truth and reality in this suspenseful, intricate story of dysfunction in families and friendships, and of interconnected secretive webs of pretence and deceit that have tragic circumstances for the residents of a small Scottish village near Loch Ness.

This book is beautifully written, full of powerful imagery and laced with foreboding that is almost palpable. The bleak hopelessness that pervade the lives of some of the characters contrasts with the anger and resentment that fills the motivations and actions of others. The characters are realistic and complex, each with their own burdens and mysteries that they carry throughout the story as the threads of the main story line weave themselves around them.

The Audible narration of the book is expressive and perfectly suited to the story, being delivered in the author’s own Scottish voice.
