About the Book
Welcome to the Misfit Mob ….
Police Scotland’s dumping ground for officers it can’t get rid of, but wants to. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases. So when an ancient mummy is dumped at the Oldcastle tip, it’s Callum’s job to find out which museum it’s been stolen from.
But when Callum turns up links between the mysterious mummy and several recent disappearances, life suddenly starts to get more interesting. With O Division’s Major Investigation Teams stretched to breaking point, the Misfit Mob unexpectedly find themselves on the trail of a serial killer who isn’t afraid to take his time.
The question is, can Callum overcome his troubled past, not to mention his trouble present, in time to save himself, let alone anyone else?
