Publisher's Summary

Dr. Steven Dunbar works for the SCI-Med Inspectorate, an elite government agency charged with investigating hi-tech crime relating to the world of science and medicine. He is therefore bemused when the deathbed confession of a convicted psychopath lands on his desk.

But it's not so amusing when it emerges that another man has already been tried and convicted of the crime - a man whose medical research once sent shockwaves through the scientific community.

Another Good Dr Dunbar

Dr. Steven Dunbar is once again called to investigate a medical mystery. This time it involves a convicted murder's deathbed confession ... a confession to a crime that forensic evidence says he did NOT commit. Everyone - and that means everyone - wants this investigation to just fade, and fade quickly.

During investigations, Dunbar depends a lot on instinct and his gut tells him something is wrong - very, very wrong. As he digs for the truth, he has to deal with liars, cheats, defensive law enforcement, rotten lawyers, and a couple psychopaths.

You won't want to put this book down! The action is swift and ongoing; the dialogue is snappy and engaging. There are enough twists and turns to keep you guessing. Expect some surprises, too ... they'll make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that?"

Ken McClure is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. His medical mysteries are well-researched and, unfortunately, the story lines are not just an author's fantasy: they are too real for comfort. Throughout "Eye of the Raven" you'll be wondering about YOUR lab test, YOUR lawyer, YOUR spouse, YOUR friends. You'll be wondering if any of this could happen to YOU.

Well worth your time ... absolutely a GREAT read! Congratulations, Ken McClure ... you've done it again!

Creepy - but compelling!

Definitely quite creepy - but well written with many twists and turns. You need to give it a chance - but you'll be pleasantly surpised. Great narration.

Gripping story

This is a new author for me but I’ll certainly be downloading more of his books. A gripping story given authenticity by the author’s professional knowledge of scientific techniques and medical procedures in forensic investigations. Much of the story takes place in Scotland so having a narrator with a Scottish accent worked well even though the main character, Dr Dunbar, is English. Rather like Ian Rankin and James Oswald novels much of the action tales place in Edinburgh which adds the additional pleasure of familiarity for those of us who know the city well.

eye of the raven

If you could sum up Eye of the Raven in three words, what would they be?

Exciting British drama

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well Dr Steven Dunbar off course.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No I have to go to work.

Any additional comments?

I have read all the Books in the Dr Steven Dunbar series. I think the eye of the raven was definitely the best in the series. Although joe dunlop was a good reader he is Scottish and Steven Dunbar is English.

Enjoyable if hard to get through

The narrative is good, reminds me of James Mason's voice. The story is good but hard going. There are so many threads that you at first wonder how they will be weaved together but they do and a fine ending.
