Publisher's Summary

As the Second World War nears its end, a man is stabbed to death on the shoreline of Kinloch, in the shadow of the great warships in the harbour. Many years later the postman on Gairsay, a tiny island off the coast of Kintyre, discovers that the Bremner family are missing from their farm. There's a pot on the stove and food on the table, but of the Bremners there is no sign. 

When DCI Daley comes into possession of a journal written by his wartime predecessor in Kinloch, Inspector William Urquhart, he soon realises that the Isle of Gairsay has many secrets. Assisted by his indomitable deputy, DS Brian Scott, and new boss, Chief Superintendent Carrie Symington, Daley must solve a wartime murder to uncover the shocking events of the past and the present.

Boring!

Have enjoyed this series up to this book. I slogged through it but was 90% completely bored. Found it hard to stay focused with the characters and jumping back and forth timeline. As always the narrator is spot on.

Not amazing but enjoyable.

Not as good as Nesbo’s “Redbreast” but fans of the series will enjoy it enough to spend the credit.

Not one of his best

Disappointing. The story was contrived and not well executed. I like this series because of its authentic setting and characters, but this story tried too hard to be more of a international thriller. It failed at both.The ending just sort of ran out of gas.
