Two victims. Nothing connects them, except that someone buried them in the exact same way. Seven hundred years apart. 'Oh my goodness, what a rollercoaster of a ride.' READER REVIEW'Every page draws you in.' READER REVIEW'Do yourself a favour and read James Oswald's series. I can almost guarantee you won't stop at one.' READER REVIEWAn 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.
