Singing to the Dead

Caro Ramsay

It is the run-up to Christmas when two seven-year-old boys are abducted from the streets of Glasgow. For DI Colin Anderson the case is especially disturbing, because the boys look so much like his own young son Peter.

When a simple house fire turns into a full-scale murder investigation, and with cold and flu season having taken many officers off the street, the force is stretched to breaking point. DS Costello's hunch is the crimes are connected, and a killer is ingeniously hiding his trail. As the squad continues to struggle working both cases, for DI Anderson the nightmare is about to get terrifyingly close to home.

Caro Ramsay is the Glaswegian author of the critically acclaimed DI Anderson and DS Costello series, the first of which, Absolution, was shortlisted for the CWA's New Blood Dagger for best debut of the year. The ninth book in the series, The Suffering of Strangers, was longlisted for the McIlvanney Prize 2018. She is available for press, events and workshops.
