Synopsis (Amazon)

Two bodies in a burnt out love nest. A cultish lifestyle and children moulded by domination. Can Macleod unravel the Black Isle mystery before the killer dispenses judgement again?

DI Macleod heads for the Black Isle as winter sets in to unravel the mystery of two lovers in a burned out bothy. With his feisty partner DC McGrath, he must unravel the connection between a family living under a cultish cloud and a radio station whose staff are being permanently retired. In the dark of winter, can Macleod shine a light on the shadowy relationships driving a killer to their murderous tasks?

Forgetting your boundaries has never been so deadly!

My Take

This is my second outing with Macleod and McGrath. A different setting to last time. (The settings will make you look for your atlas.) Two bodies to be identified and in the long run an unexpected resolution.

I like the way the detective duo and the relationship between them is being fleshed out. There is a lot of back story being developed. The plot in this one was a little bizarre, and some threads a little bit far-fetched, but it still the main action drew me in. 

I think I'm hooked but perhaps a little daunted by seeing somewhere that there are 18 in the series!

My rating: 4.5
