Synopsis

Two victims. Nothing connects them, except that someone buried them in the exact same way.
Seven hundred years apart.

'Do yourself a favour and read James Oswald's series. I can almost guarantee you won't stop at one.' ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ ⭐ READER REVIEW

An archaeological dig at the old South Leith parish kirkyard has turned up a mysterious body dating from around seven hundred years ago. Some suspect that this gruesome discovery is a sacrifice, placed there for a specific purpose.

Then a second body is unearthed. This victim went missing only thirty years ago - but the similarities between her death and the ancient woman's suggest something even more disturbing.

Drawn into the investigation, Inspector McLean finds himself torn between a worrying trend of violent drug-related deaths and uncovering what truly connects these bodies. When a third body is discovered, and too close for comfort, he begins to suspect dark purpose at play - and that whoever put them there is far from finished.
