  • Here we go Loopy Doo

    One of the best in the series so far. An interesting story that involves illegal immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers and the return of an old and powerful adversary. But why is she seemingly helping? Can a new ally be the key to resolving things? What has a sixties rock band got to do with anything? Once again political intrigue hampers McLean's investigations and he is left with the inevitable dilemma of how to explain what was really going on. Tony McLean, as always, tries to exercise commitment and compassion in everything he does even though it gets him into trouble professionally and personally.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A treat for crime fiction lovers

    This is a treat for crime fiction lovers with a bit of the supernatural thrown in for good measure. Mr Oswald knows how to write a great story and he has done it once again with "Cold as the Grave". DCI Tony McLean finds himself, quite unexpectedly, in the midst of a strange and disturbing investigation following his discovery of the mummified remains of a young girl. Being a DCI, Tony is not supposed to get into the day to day investigation of crime however, Tony being Tony just can't help himself and he quickly becomes in the thick of it. This is a dark and sinister case to investigate and includes themes on refugees, asylum seekers, illegal immigrants, trafficking, modern slavery, the murder of children and violence towards women as well as introducing a less than "normal" slant on the perpetrator of the crime and the method used for committing murder. With fantastic characters throughout and written in a sympathetic rather than sensationalist way with the back drop of a winter in Edinburgh, this is a great read. I admit to not having read all the previous books in this series and although I have probably missed out massively on back story, character development, etc., it did not detract from my enjoyment of this book. On to the next .... when it comes out! My thanks must go to the Publisher and NetGalley for my copy in return for an unbiased review.

    Thanks for your feedback!
