BEST-selling crime writer James Oswald returns to The Avenue Shopping Centre in Newton Mearns to discuss and sign copies of Prayer for the Dead, the fifth novel in his popular Inspector McLean series, in an event organised by Waterstone’s at Primavera on Friday 27th February from 7pm till 8.30pm.
In Prayer for the Dead, the search for a missing journalist is called off as a body is found at the scene of a carefully staged murder. In a sealed chamber, deep in the heart of Gilmerton Cove, a mysterious network of caves and passages sprawling beneath Edinburgh, the victim has undergone a macabre ritual of purification.
Inspector Tony McLean knew the dead man, and can’t shake off the suspicion that there is far more to this case than meets the eye. The baffling lack of forensics at the crime scene seems impossible. But it is not the only thing about this case that McLean will find beyond belief.
Teamed with the most unlikely and unwelcome of allies, he must track down a killer driven by the darkest compulsions, who will answer only to a higher power…
Michelle McCabe, Centre Manager at The Avenue, said: “We’re delighted to welcome James Oswald, one of Scotland’s most successful writers, back to The Avenue. He proved to be a popular attraction last year and I’m sure his many fans will once again turn out in numbers to hear him talk about Prayer for the Dead.”
