Finally, the supernatural is openly supernatural but for a very short spell, what has not changed is the pandering to the new readers; we are told about the car, his wife and Madam Rose ( A character that contributes very little to the plot but political correctness ) and the cats at noxious.
This is book eight and the conspiracy theories have not advanced one bit, also the characters are becoming stuck in a groove that seems to just go on repeat.
I had looked forward to this book but find it disappointing and repetitive, time to develop characters and storyline, time to take a chance, the Alfa Romeo is parked in the garage and readers are very forgiving; no need to fear losing it.

The first time I listened to this book I felt a bit disappointed. I had waited for it for a long time and when I finished it I didn’t think it had as good a plot as the previous books. However it prompted me to listen to the whole series in order and when I listened to this book for a second time I found it more enjoyable and I realised that there was considerably more to the plot than I had given it credit for the first time.
It is a good story with an odd end, but there are lots of twists and turns to keep the reader interested and as always there is a sprinkling of the supernatural. Mrs McCutcheon’s cat and Madam Rose are my favourite characters in the series as a whole but it is hard to identify a favourite character in this book. I rather liked the new Chief Superintendent but it seems that there will be more changes to get used to in the next book.
I like the supernatural element, I think he gets it just right. Best of all I like the wonderful narration by Ian Hanmore, he brings the books to life.

James Oswald has out done himself yet again.
A fantastic book for those that love the inspector mcLean series.
And ian hanmore as the narrator?
Hes brilliant. He makes the whole book come alive with his reading which is more like acting it out.
Highly recommend this book i couldnt put it down.
Great characters the reader wants to know more about. Good plot twists. Definitely recommend this book.
