I am super excited to share my review with you today for Dead Man’s Grave by Neil Lancaster. Which is out now
This grave can never be opened.
The head of Scotland’s most powerful crime family is brutally murdered, his body dumped inside an ancient grave in a remote cemetery.
This murder can never be forgotten.
Detectives Max Craigie and Janie Calder arrive at the scene, a small town where everyone has secrets to hide. They soon realise this murder is part of a blood feud between two Scottish families that stretches back to the 1800s. One thing’s for certain: it might be the latest killing, but it won’t be the last…
This killer can never be caught.
As the body count rises, the investigation uncovers large-scale corruption at the heart of the Scottish Police Service. Now Max and Janie must turn against their closest colleagues – to solve a case that could cost them far more than just their lives…
Every now and then I read a book and right from the start I think why have I never read this author before, because I know from the first page it is going to be a corker. This is one of those books! Dead Man’s Grave is an absolutely brilliant start to the DS Max Craigie Scottish Crime Thrillers series.
With one hell of an opening I couldn’t put this book down. why can this grave never be opened is the question?!
I loved max who is ex military. He is one of those characters I couldn’t help but love. This is a story is full of good guys and bad guys. When we follow a story about a family feud dating back to 1800.
I do love my grit lit and this book has just that. We have the whole gangster added to the mix. With characters that jumped out of the pages I could hear their Scottish accents. Dead Man’s Grave is without a doubt a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
It is so, so good! I am off to amazon to buy more books by Neil. I cannot recommend it enough. Giving it 5 solid gold stars.
