Publisher's Summary

While illegally street racing in the underground tunnels of Glasgow, four Harley-Davidson riders make a horrifying discovery: a dead man left in the darkness, hands together on his chest as if peacefully laid to rest. The cause of death is unclear, the only clues being a half glass of red wine and a partially eaten chunk of bread by his side that echo the ancient religious practice of sin-eating.

Called to the scene, forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is perplexed by the lack of evidence. But when another body is found near her own flat, laid out in a similar manner, she fears a forensically aware killer stalks the city and is marking the victims with their unique signature. Even more worryingly, the killer appears to be using skills they may have learned while attending her forensic science lectures at Glasgow University.

There are signs that Rhona is being targeted, that the killer is playing with her and the police, drawing them into a deadly race against time, before the sin-eater’s next victim is chosen....

Sins of the Dead is the thrilling 13th book in Lin Anderson’s Rhona MacLeod series.

Critic Reviews

"Anderson is a master storyteller, filling her novels with engaging characters, clever, compelling, contemporary plotlines and a beautifully descriptive prose that belies the death and darkness of her powerful, pulsating crime mysteries." (Blackpool Gazette

"Lin Anderson is one of Scotland’s national treasures - don’t be fooled by comparisons, her writing is unique, bringing warmth and depth to even the seediest parts of Glasgow. Lin’s Rhona MacLeod is a complex and compelling heroine who just gets better with every outing." (Stuart MacBride) 

"Shades of The Wicker Man, with a touch of Agatha Christie. Superb." (Daily Mail

Not for me

Good narration, but I found the book long winded. I would easily lose my place, and then have to re read. I got half way through anticipating it would become more interesting, but unfortunately it didn't.

Good thriller

Another fast- paced thriller in the Rhona Macleod series. The usual characters are there with developing relationships and break ups for both Rhona and McNab. She is still incredibly annoying by putting herself in danger
