Singing to the Dead (Paperback) by Caro Ramsay
Reissued with a stunning new package, Caro Ramsay's "Anderson & Costello" thrillers have been widely recognised as one of the most significant new series in the genre in recent years and Ramsay's utterly unique investigators are ready to become the nation's favourite Scottish cop duo. "Singing to the Dead" is the second novel in this gripping series. "Brilliant in twisting the tension tauter with each page". ("Guardian"). Bitter betrayal. Sweet revenge. Two seven-year-old boys have been abducted from the streets of Glasgow. Both had already endured years of neglect and betrayal - but for Detective Inspector Colin Anderson the case is especially disturbing, because the boys look so much like his own son Peter...Then, with police resources stretched to breaking point, a simple house fire turns into a full-scale murder hunt. An invisible killer is picking off victims at random and, if DS Costello's hunch is correct, committing an ingenious deception. As his squad struggles to work both cases, DI Anderson learns that deception and betrayal come in many guises. For while the boys' abductor is still out there no child is safe - as young Peter Anderson is about to find out..." Singing to the Dead" is a stunning masterpiece of Scottish crime fiction that will stay with you long after the last page is turned. "Ramsay handles her characters with aplomb, the dialogue crackles and the search for the killer has surprising twists and turns". ("Observer"). "Many shivers in store for readers, followed by a shattering climax". ("The Times"). Caro Ramsay was born in Glasgow and now lives in a village on the West Coast of Scotland. This is her second novel, following the critically acclaimed "Absolution". "Dark Water" is the third "Anderson and Costello" thriller. The fourth, "The Blood of Crows", publishes this summer.
