I’m excited to welcome you today to my stop on the blog tour for the fantastic Bury Them Deep (Inspector Tony McLean 10) by James Oswald. Thank you as always to Anne Cater and Wildfire for giving me the opportunity to read and review this gripping police thriller.
About the book:
The tenth book in the Sunday Times-bestselling Inspector McLean series, from one of Scotland’s most celebrated crime writers.
When a member of the Police Scotland team fails to clock-in for work, concern for her whereabouts is immediate… and the discovery of her burnt-out car in remote woodland to the south of Edinburgh sets off a desperate search for the missing woman.
Meanwhile, DCI Tony McLean and the team are preparing for a major anti-corruption operation – one which may raise the ire of more than a few powerful people in the city. Is Anya Reynolds’ disappearance a co-incidence or related to the case?
McLean’s investigations suggest that perhaps that Anya isn’t the first woman to have mysteriously vanished in these ancient hills. Once again, McLean can’t shake the feeling that there is a far greater evil at work here…
The truth far more chilling than a simple cold case…
About the author:
JAMES OSWALD is the author of the Sunday Times bestselling Inspector McLean series of detective mysteries, as well as the new DC Constance Fairchild series. James’s first two books, NATURAL CAUSES and THE BOOK OF SOULS, were both short-listed for the prestigious CWA Debut Dagger Award. BURY THEM DEEP is the tenth book in the Inspector Mclean Series.
James farms Highland cows and Romney sheep by day, writes disturbing fiction by night.
As a huge fan of James Oswald’s Inspector Tony McLean series, I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to be a part of the blog tour for book 10 in the series. It’s hard to believe we’re on book 10 already, but each new story is fresh, exciting and keeps on going from strength to strength with each one.
This latest instalment of the popular series finds DCI Tony McLean and his team in search of Anya Renfrew, a missing colleague whose burnt out car has been found in remote woodland. Tony and his team are in the middle of an anti corruption operation, which is likely to upset some very powerful people. So is Anya’s disappearance a direct result of their investigation? Or is there a far greater evil at work here?
The story is as well written, fast paced and gripping as always, with an underlying feeling of something more going on just beneath the surface that causes the hairs to stand up on the back of your neck. This is a dark tale that keeps you enthralled from beginning to end. With a cast of characters it’s always a delight to catch up with, Bury Them Deep is a worthy addition to what has become one of my favourite crime thriller series of all time. There’s always so much more to these stories than at first meets the eye and this one is no exception. Dark, thrilling and with a wonderful Scottish sense of humour running through it, I loved every word of this brilliant and gripping thriller.
James Oswald’s writing gets better and better with each instalment of this fabulous series, and I hope DCI Tony McLean and his team are going to be around for many more years to come. I would recommend this series of books to anyone who enjoys something a little bit different mixed in with their crime fiction. Simply superb!
Highly recommended and one of my favourite reads of the year so far.
