Edinburgh-based police procedural – well worth a read

Written in Bones - James  Oswald

 

 

This is the seventh Metcalfe detective novel and previous volumes are referred to during the book. Not having read these, I still found this novel accessible and an easy read. It deals with a body falling out of the sky and the repercussions of this murder: it uncovers police corruption, drug dealing, murder and other nefarious activities.

 

Characterisation is very good and the novel is engaging and enjoyable. The plot is well put together and original. I recommend this to all lovers of well-written detective fiction.
