The very first crime novel by author Michael Patterson, which introduces his challenged hero Steven Murray.
It was December 2014 in Edinburgh and “the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day.”
When choosing between the police and the criminals, it can often be difficult to tell who is a god and who is a monster. In Scotland, in the 'Heart of Midlothian' - Kenny Dixon was regarded as both. http://www.detectivestevemurray.co.uk/
Detective Inspector Steve Murray is a down-to-earth, no nonsense, music loving Scotsman. In addition to having a healthy Irish lineage, he is a mouthy maverick with a 'heart of gold' and an
unsettling series of disturbing demons of his own to fight!
One thing he knew for sure though - the darker things got, the closer the danger!
So he recognised the dead, bloodied body of a female art student was only just the beginning.
With a string of further unexplained festive deaths, the investigation intensified. In a battle of wits and wills - Did Murray have what it took to uncover the truth? To figure out the how, the why and eventually, the who? http://amzn.eu/0ysjfUR
Revenge, greed, abuse and power all surface. And as the twists, turns and death count rise - be prepared to be startled, shocked and amazed by the intimate deathly sound of .................. The Winter Wind!
