The Murder List

If you’re a sucker for a great police procedural, and the odd serial killer, then The Murder List is perfect for you. Set once again against the atmospheric backdrop of St Andrews, the tenth in the brilliant DCI Andy Gilchrist series is just as engrossing, gruesome and dark as the previous books in the series. Beginning with the shocking opening of an elderly woman’s corpse found crucified to the floor of her home, Gilchrist is soon on the hunt for a vicious serial killer; you’ll be burning through the pages to find out the truth.

T. F. Muir has a real talent for crafting page-turning narrative and compelling characters who are equal parts grit and vulnerability, something central to making a police procedural like this both something new and familiar all at once. This is irresistible tartan noir, with plenty of action in pubs (a setting that, given our current circumstances, feels quite nostalgic.)
