The Book of Souls is James Oswald's second electrifying thriller in the Detective Inspector McLean series.

Every year for ten years, a young woman's body was found in Edinburgh at Christmas time: naked, throat slit, body washed clean.

Ten years, ten women.

The final victim, Kirsty Summers, was Detective Constable Tony McLean's fiancée. But the Christmas Killer made a mistake. In a cellar under a shop, McLean found a torture chamber and put an end to the brutal killing spree.

Twelve years later, and a fellow prisoner has just murdered the incarcerated Christmas Killer. But with the arrival of the festive season comes a body. A young woman: naked, washed, her throat cut.

Is this a copycat killer?

Was the wrong man behind bars all this time?

Or is there a more sinister, frightening explanation?

McLean must revisit the most disturbing case of his life and discover what he missed before the killer strikes again . . .

The Book of Souls is the second in the Detective Inspector Mclean series. The first was Natural Causes and the upcoming third will be called The Hangman's Song. Fans of Ian Rankin, Peter James and Stuart McBride will love James Oswald's work.

Daily Record

Twelve years ago Edinburgh's Detective Inspector Tony McLean finally put the 'Christmas Killer' behind bars - but at a terrible price: the last victim of this decade-long killing spree was McLean's own fiancée.

Now this notorious serial killer has met his end at the hands of a fellow prisoner - just as a new body matching previous murders is found.

A horrified McLean is full of questions: is this a copycat killer? Did he put the wrong man behind bars? Is this somehow his fault?

McLean must revisit the most traumatic case of his career. But what did he miss? And will the killer strike so close once again...?
