A Maxim Jakubowski selected title.

Forensic expert Dr Rhona MacLeod has already appeared in eight novels and is, reputedly, being developed for television. A Scottish counterpart to America's Kay Scarpetta or Temperance Brennan, she deserves a similar success. Voices from the dead at a spiritualist meeting, a ritual murder with severed hands and a stone with the number five carved into it, stuffed into the victim's mouth found in a neolithic stone circle high above Glasgow: enter the indomitable Dr McLeod. Then another body is discovered in similar circumstances. Occult motivations or gangland murder? A doughty sleuth with a pleasant personality, Rhona is tenacious, a CSI Scotland with a cast of one, and a memorable character who's gunning for the top 10 of the McMafia hitlist.

Paths of the Dead Synopsis

IT WAS NEVER JUST A GAME ...When Amy MacKenzie agrees to attend a meeting at a local spiritualist church, the last person she expects to hear calling to her from beyond the grave is her son. The son whom she'd only spoken to an hour before. Then the body of a young man is found inside a neolithic stone circle high above the city of Glasgow and forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is soon on the case. The hands have been severed and there is a stone in the victim's mouth with the number five scratched on it. DI Michael McNab is certain it's a gangland murder, but Rhona isn't convinced. When a second body is found in similar circumstances, a pattern begins to emerge, of a killer intent on masterminding a gruesome Druidic game that everyone will be forced to play ...Paths of the Dead is the next novel in Lin Anderson's esteemed Rhona Macleod crime series.
