Rosie Duff has been raped, stabbed, and left for dead in the ancient Pictish cemetery. The only suspects are the four young students stained with her blood.
Twenty-five years later, police mount a cold-case review. Among the unsolved murders they're examining is that of Rosie Duff. But someone else has his own idea of how justice should be done.
One of the original quartet dies in a suspicious house fire. Soon after, a second is killed in what looks like a burglary gone sour. Alex fears the worst. Someone is taking revenge for Rosie Duff. He has to find out who it is before he becomes the next victim. And it might just save his life if he can uncover who killed Rosie all those years ago.
"Masterful mixing of forensic science with brisk plots and in-depth characterization." (Booklist)
"Cunningly plotted." (The New York Times Book Review)

Engrossing plot with excellent narration
This was a fun read--the plot kept my attention but the best part was narration, which was excellent--particularly the true-to-character brogue.
I'd like to see more books by this author and narrator on Audible.

I was looking for a mystery novel, and I got more than I bargained for, in the good way! Once I started listening I couldn't stop. McDermid really gets you involved with and caring about the characters concisely and with wit. That seems to be the heart and soul of the book - getting the listener to love the characters.
The reader is excellent and I plan to seek out more books read by Gerard Doyle.
