Dead Men’s Bones opening line: The pain is everywhere.
This is the 4th book in the Inspector McLean books, and follows on from The Hangman’s Song. Tony McLean is back at work, and investigating two seemingly unrelated incidents. On one hand he must try and discover how a very tattooed man ended up dead, naked and in the water, and on the other hand he is tasked to unearth why a man killed his family and then committed suicide. At the same time, his trusted colleague comes down with an illness for no apparent reason. It is only Emma’s postcards, and the cats that keep him grounded and safe.
I really enjoy James Oswald’s way with words and this book was another great read. I am looking forward to the future novels and will make a note to get the first two which will give me some background to the ones I have already read. I can highly recommend this book.
