Book Review: A Dark so Deadly by Stuart MacBride

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this book, free of charge,from Harper Collins, for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them, all opinions are my own.



Leaving Kent, England behind, I did my 'Summer World Travel' by heading onto a different British isle- Scotland, with this book!

a dark so deadly cover



Synopsis:

It’s where Police Scotland dumps the officers it can’t get rid of, but wants to: the outcasts, the troublemakers, the compromised. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases. So when an ancient mummy turns up at the Oldcastle tip, it’s his job to find out which museum it’s been stolen from.

But then Callum uncovers links between his ancient corpse and three missing young men, and life starts to get a lot more interesting. O Division’s Major Investigation Teams already have more cases than they can cope with, so, against everyone’s better judgement, the Misfit Mob are just going to have to manage this one on their own.

No one expects them to succeed, but right now they’re the only thing standing between the killer’s victims and a slow, lingering death. The question is, can they prove everyone wrong before he strikes again?

Review:

This is actually a stand alone novel, but it's a good one, and not to be missed, especially if you love the McRae series from MacBride! the merry misfits of the Misfit Mob will make you smile, laugh out loud, and cheer for them to solve the case at hand, to show they might not be the best, but they are stubborn and can solve any crime thrown at them! You just might find yourself wanting to read a lot more from the characters, as they definitely grow on you, and the ending is SO surprising, that you might have to go back and read the last 1/3 of the book again, thinking you missed something (and this isn't a light read at over 600 pages!). This is one that you finish and go 'HUH! Didn't see THAT coming" and are impressed with how you were strung down the wrong road SO many times! It's a sleight of hand to be appreciated! So consider it for your Summer reading!
