The Book of Souls

What happens when a convicted serial killer is murdered in prison and then victims murdered with the same MO are found? But instead of one a year, now the victims are killed within weeks of each other?

That’s the premise of James Oswald’s The Book of Souls, but with the added complication that the convicted killer’s last victim was Detective Inspector McLean’s fiancé. Its a pretty dark, cold novel with lots of layers to the story. The police are separately investigating a drug ring, an arson, and now the new serial killer. With limited resources to be shared, there’s a lot of volatility within the department that lead to some great police interactions.

Good read. Really liked to setting of Scotland since I don’t think I’ve read anything set there before.
