Publisher's Summary

It's Christmas, and half the Partickhill police squad is down with flu. Not good timing, with a series of cyanide poisonings in the area, plus two small boys reported missing in the space of a few days. And then there's the monumental task of providing concert security for rock legend Rogan O'Neill. But for Detective Inspector Colin Anderson, the nightmare is about to get terrifyingly close to home. For a third boy has now gone missing - Colin's own son, Peter. The team race to find the boys before it is too late. But how long will it be before they realise the key is hidden in the lyrics of a rock song - 'Tambourine Girl' by Rogan O'Neill?

Good Listen

I really enjoyed this second in the series from this new to me author. I enjoyed the Scottish setting and characters. I thought that the storyline was interesting, albeit with many threads, and the book was a bit overlong. I have requested the first in the series and am looking forward to being up to date until the next in the series is out later this year.

Very atmospheric

Really enjoyed this Glasgow based book. Some likeable characters, some quite chilling.

Well read if you love the Glasgow accent.

Very enjoyable

I found this novel quite gripping and 'HAD' to keep listening - hadn't heard of this author before and chose because of reviews on Amazon. I loved the voice of the narrator.

The characters were well drawn and likeable enough for me to care what happened to them. A most enjoyable listen.

Enjoyable listen

Where does Singing to the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is an enjoyable cop story, set in Scotland and narrated very nicely by a Scot. There seems to be quite a lot of 'Scot Cop' fiction around at the moment and they are all very similar - in my opinion MacBride is still on top of the 'gruesome' crime stories (and Peter May with the beautiful Lewis trilogy), but saying that I did enjoy this story by Caro Ramsay and I've downloaded the second. Unlike MacBride's stories this one does lack the punch of having a really grim crime to investigate, but in a way it was quite nice to listen to something that didn't turn my stomach or have a huge amount of swearing in it!
