Excellent police procedural well told

This is a well crafted police procedural set in the wilderness of Scotland. The characters were engaging and there were enough twists and turns in the plot to keep you guessing to the end. The minor characters were particularly well drawn, adding a depth to the story that was very satisfying.
I particularly loved the gravely Scottish brogue of the narrator David McCann. It added a touch of realism to the voices, to hear them in the accent the author intended. It was very easy on the ear, and I would love to hear more from this distinctive voice.
Looking forward to the next installment.
