    This is the fourth in the Inspector Tony McLean series set in Edinburgh Tony is still recovering from what happened to him in the last book and he is to get no respite in this one The body of a completely tattooed man is discovered in the river Then there is the high profile case of the powerful SMP Andrew Weatherly who gruesomely shoots his wife Morag and murders his two young daughters prior to turning the gun on himself All of which is captured on video The thought that runs through your mind is what on earth triggered this ghastly set of events? Elements of the police and other influential figures want to shut down any investigation but there are those who want to see this pursued However there is a heavy cost to Tony and the police team like DS Ritchie for trying to get to the bottom of the mystery Then there is the mysterious Mrs Saifre The two cases turn out to have connections The trademark supernatural angle to the series emerges only at the end Thanks to Penguin Michael Joseph for an ARC

    'Dead Men's Bones' is the 4th book in the Inspector Mclean series by author James Oswald I obtained all 7 books in this series and started reading them with the intention to slot them in between the other books I have on my list to read However having read the first one I wanted to learn about the characters in this series and so it went on I have now just started the 6th book with the likelihood that I will then go on to the 7th I do enjoy these types of series and like all the sub plots development of characters and the general familiarity of it all I would highly recommend that these books are read in the order they were intended as there are many sub plots and happenings that may not make sense to a reader starting halfway throughIn this book influential politician Andrew Weatherly shoots his wife and two young daughters before he turned the gun on himself The uestion is why a successful politician would suddenly snap with tragic circumstances Inspector Tony McLean leads the case that threatens the lives of his friends and colleagues I would like to thank Net Galley and Penguin UK for supplying a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review

    Great book until the ending A superb plot line with excellent characters and dialogue coming to an abrupt end with no answers to any of the uestions posed in the book Coupled with a very feeble insinuation that the villain is the devil and that the answers lie in the supernatural the ending feels like the author ran out of any good way to finish the story Thought I had found a good author to read but just like the tosh Dean Koontz writes everything is explained by the devil or dark forces at work which are ideas I would expect a child to be insulted by I will return to Ian Rankin and good old Rebus for books written by a classy writer with endings that are logical strong and which leave you satisfied and content when finishing the book For anyone reading this book the first 448 pages are very good whereas the last ten are sadly drivel

    ‘Of course Andrew had enemies He was a politician and one with views a lot of people thought extreme He wasn’t a fan of independence for one thing Not shy of saying so I think you’ll agree’In the depths of a Scottish winter Inspector Tony McLean is assigned to the investigation of the deaths of a Member of the Scottish Parliament Andrew Weatherly caught on security camera at his home in Fife drugging then smothering his daughters and shooting his wife before turning the rifle on himself McLean is surprised to find his one time mentor Detective Superintendent Tennant of the local police is the Senior Investigating Officer who observes with a keen Scottish wit that the case ‘is way too important to leave to people who know what they are doing’As McLean’s team interviews staff and business associates to try and establish a motive for the killings a second case is under investigation the death of a naked man covered in a full body tattoo found wedged in the rocks of the River Esk The PM is performed by Edinburgh pathologist Angus Cadwallader who also handles the PM’s for the Weatherly’s Most of the man’s tattoos are recent but older one’s lead to the military Pressure is applied from on high for the Weatherly case to be wrapped up as uietly as possible and handed over to the Procurator Fiscal in a cover up to avoid media speculation over Weatherly’s lifestyle and proclivities but McLean receives visits and incriminating evidence from Special Branch who want the investigation to continue McLean attends the funeral for the family and the wake meeting the mysterious Mrs SaifreI found the first half of the book entertaining; the characters well formed police procedural and forensics fascinating the rich wit and linguistic flourishes comments on the recent restructuring from the old divisions to Police Scotland the psychologist and physiotherapist attending to McLean’s injuries the workers at soup kitchens for the homeless Mrs McCutcheon’s cat exercising its authority over the large house McLean inherited from his grandmother But then the story morphed into modern day gothic with satanic influences ritual killings and burials which was unexpected and for me a tad disappointing

    Dead Men's Bones by James OswaldMeet Inspector Tony McLean You may think he's just another Detective Inspector but then his cases are far from average This cases is one that only McLean could chase and solve with or without the normal conclusion Then again you can't have everything This was the 4th book in the Inspector McLean series and my favorite Guiding methe reader effortlessly through the passage of time as Tony conducts his investigation through two cases that become intertwined as the story evolves How much is Tony willing to risk to unearth the truth that lies beneath the an old abandoned mental asylum? And will that risk take down his own team in the process?HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    Somewhere between a four and a five probably the former is fairer due to a bit of an annoying supernatural element in the denouement which felt slightly unsatisfying in the sense of not properly tying the story upJames Oswald comes close to the heights of my favourite Scottish noir gritty crime thrillers Stuart MacBride Denise Mina perchance Craig Russell and Craig Robertson too in writing absorbing realistic complex and intelligent thrillers with a great sense of atmosphere and a decent balance between action and description of the crimes being carried out and the police trying to solve them The plot of this one is particularly clever keeping me guessing and introducing a number of aspects for the reader to slowly work out and feel clever about a mystery tattooed body found in a river and a powerful Scottish politician involved in a murder suicideBut yes it ended up with a bit of a rushed and unusual conclusion I was left a little miffed by this It didn't spoil it all forsure but it was a bit Oh at the end

    I've been really enjoying these books I uite like the supernatural twist on the detective stories and I really like Tony McClean I didn't like the way this one ended Great storyline edge of you seat stuff just like the previous books but the ending was disappointing I just felt that Oswald ran out of ideas like he'd brought in the devil as a baddie but then thoughthang on a minute how is Tony McLean going to beat the Devil? We're supposed to believe that this truly evil powerful and dangerous beast just walks away and leaves town after being turned down and told off? Maybe it won't be the last we see of Mrs Saifre but it just felt a bit rushed

    I can think of three adjectives to describe this entire seriessometimes funny freuently scary and always otherworldly It has uickly become one of my favorites We follow Detective Inspector Tony McLean as he conducts his investigation through two cases that become intertwined To solve both cases he must unearth the truth that lies beneath an old abandoned mental asylum thus putting his own team at risk in the process This series will appeal to those that like a mystery with just a touch of the supernatural
