Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the new unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Dead Men's Bones, the new gripping thriller from James Oswald.
Morag Weatherly and her two young daughters have been shot by husband Andrew, an influential politician, before he turned the gun on himself. But what would cause a rich, successful man to snap so suddenly?
For Inspector Tony McLean, this apparently simple but high-profile case leads him into a world of power and privilege. And the deeper he digs, the more he realises he's being manipulated by shadowy factions.
Under pressure to wrap up the case, McLean instead seeks to uncover layers of truth - putting the lives of everyone he cares about at risk . . .

saucy demon fails to recruit new sacrificial soul

Trust an ex British SAS soldier to be a hero. And one does wonder who else was in the club and who exactly are the dark angels and why Geordy thought.he was the target.

The story lacks a kind of cohesion and is still lots of fun. I found myself keenly engaged and wanting to learn what comes next. The cat is wonderful. So is the Secret Service visitor.
Very well read by Ian Hanmore.

Excellently written, narrated series

Do you have any additional comments?

After listening to some books which can only be described as ponderous drivel, it is truly wonderful to return to an author who actually knows how to write. A very good series, excellently narrated and a series which in my opinion will only get better.<br/>Start from book 1 and you will become addicted. It helps if you are a fan of Scottish Crime, narrators and a story which often has a dark twist to it.

Another great book in the series

I really do like listening to Ian Hanmore - as with the others in the series this was very well narrated. I think you do need to read in order as previous details are mentioned and you need to be up to date to get the links.

More please - I really have thoroughly enjoyed this series and very disappointed to come to the end of this book.

An intriguing mix of come and the supernatural

The events in the story could be explained by natural phenomena but are just strange enough to keep you guessing to the end. it's hard to stop listening.

Evil to the Max !

Any additional comments?

The ultimate evil manifests itself in the form of the character Mrs Saifre in this novel. In the real world much evil is perpetrated under the guise of ritual and ceremony but is really just sick fantasies being satisfied, nearly always by rich and powerful people, with much effort being made to cover it up. This is essentially the basis for this story which is very good but could have wrapped up a bit better in the end. Perhaps the door has been left open deliberately for the return of Evil. As always Ian Hanmore makes the characters. I just love the work of this hard to beat duo. Hats off to James Oswald and team for staying with this excellent narrator. Very disappointing when listening to a series and the narrator is changed. Ruins it completely!
