Gripping standalone thriller from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of the Logan McRae series.

The wall whispers to him with splintered wooden lips. ‘They’ll worship you, They’ll worship you. They’ll worship you…
Its words fill the gloom,  rolling around and around and through him, pulsing and pulling. ‘They’ll worship you.
Why?
Why can’t he just die?

Welcome to the Misfit Mob...

It's where Police Scotland dumps the officers it can't get rid of, but wants to: the outcasts, the troublemakers, the compromised. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases.

So when an ancient mummy turns up at the Oldcastle tip, it's his job to find out which museum it's been stolen from. But then Callum uncovers links between his ancient corpse and three missing young men, and life starts to get a lot more interesting. O Division's Major Investigation Teams already have more cases than they can cope with, so, against everyone's better judgement, the Misfit Mob are just going to have to manage this one on their own.

No one expects them to succeed, but right now they're the only thing standing between the killer's victims and a slow, lingering death. The question is, can they prove everyone wrong before he strikes again?

The autobiography on Stuart Macbride’s website states that he ‘was born in Dumbarton, but ran away to join the circus at the age of nine, where he specialised in wrestling bears for money’. When not locked in combat with a grizzly or two, he is the author of bestselling crime fiction, most notably The Logan McRae Series which launched his writing career with first novel, Cold Granite. His other novels include Birthdays for the Dead and A Song for the Dying (The Ash Henderson Novels) and standalones Halfhead, Sawbones and A Dark So Deadly.
