Publisher's Summary

Escaping to America from the turmoil of her life back in Edinburgh, DI Jim Meldrum's daughter, Betty, is swept off her feet by a handsome man from back home. A whirlwind romance quickly culminates in marriage. But what are the secrets he is hiding? Handsome and rich, but still a mystery, has Betty married a monster?

Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, Jim Meldrum is feeling the strain of working on a high profile case. A businessman's wife is missing and, Jim suspects, has become a victim of foul play. As Meldrum investigates the businessman's past, he uncovers facts that seem to connect this case to a number of unsolved rapes...

    "The Stranger from Home (Unabridged)"

    A flimsy plot, unconvincing characters and immature writing style

    "I thought it would be good"

    I listen to books on my ipod as I drive so I may have missed bits. But I got to the end and thought this had so much potential but! If I had been reading this book I would have given up looked at the ending and thought it wasn't worth finishing. I was disappointed with the it, but like so many books the beginning and the middle is good and it runs out of steam for the end.
