The Book of Souls

The Book of Souls (Inspector McLean, #2)The Book of Souls by James Oswald
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The second of the Inspector McLean series is nowhere near as gruesome as the first but it still has the elements I enjoyed in the first book; the camaraderie and the subtle supernatural element, although it is still a bit cliched. In this one a series of fires is cropping up across Edinburgh and the backstory of the murdered fiancée, alluded to in the first book, is bought to the fore, as a number of very similar murders occur. As required of all modern fictional Scottish detectives it seems, McLean is having a very tough time.
