Book Description


'Bless me Father, for I have sinned ...'

An undercover detective goes missing and the body of a young man is found mutilated in a shop doorway. Is there a connection? Returning to work after a short convalescence, DCI Brendan Moran's suspicions are aroused when a senior officer insists on freezing Moran out and handling the investigation himself.

A second murder convinces Moran that a serial killer is on the loose but with only a few days to prove his point the disgruntled DCI can't afford to waste time.

As temperatures hit the high twenties, tempers fray, and the investigation founders Moran finds himself coming back to the same question again and again: can he still trust his own judgement, or is he leading his team up a blind alley?



Praise for the DCI Brendan Moran series:


'The story grabbed me from the start and never let up until the final pages, taking me through perfectly credible and well orchestrated twists and turns throughout.'

'Well written, a good solid story, with believable main characters. I like Moran's human frailty, and though this particular tale is bleak and harsh, it rhymes well with Moran's own problems. A good read all round.'

'A well-planned, well-written novel ... the second book I have read by this author ... the writer has a fertile imagination and an attractive narrative style.'

'I have read both of the books in this series and they are an excellent read. very good story lines and fast paced. Looking forward to more.'

Omnibus edition coming soon!

About the Author

Scott was born in Romford, Essex in 1956. His writing career was kick-started after he won first prize in the Sunday Express Short Story Competition. Scott divides his time between writing, IT contract work and drumming. He has recorded with internationally renowned rock band 'Jethro Tull' and appeared in concert with 70's popsters 'Mungo Jerry'. Scott lives in Berkshire with his wife, Katherine, his two youngest children (Tom, 14 and Emily, 13) and a Cocker Spaniel named Archie. He is a committed Christian (Scott, not Archie) and is actively involved in his local church in Reading. Scott was long listed for the Times/Chicken House Children's Novel Competition for 'The Ley Lines of Lushbury' and won the Sunday Express Short Story Competition a few years back for his historical entry set in the English Civil War. Scott's controversial archaeological novel, 'The Trespass' is an Amazon top 20 Bestseller.

4.0 out of 5 stars A page turner 12 July 2013
By Elaine Tomasso TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
DCI Brendan Moran is back on duty after his last case left him badly injured and his sergeant invalided out. This time he is investigating the murder of 2 Asian youths and an undercover WPC which he believes to be linked to each other but unconnected to the drugs sting the WPC was involved in. The senior officers try to take the case from him as they believe the murders are connected to the drugs operation. With me so far? Add to this mix the invalided sergeant's grudge against Moran for causing his injuries and you have the start of a high octane thriller. This book is non stop action and convoluted twists with a high rate of attrition. I was able to suspend my disbelief and I was gripped by the plot. It won't win any literary prizes but it will keep you riveted.
I have one minor quibble and that is with the formatting. There is almost no spacing between the paragraphs so the book jumps rather quickly from one character to another and I had to go back and re-read some bits to get in to the changed viewpoint.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I had enjoyed the first in the DCI Moran Series. If anything I enjoyed this book more. I like the author's style of writing and the portrayal of DCI Moran is very human and believable.

I am looking forward to the next book in the series - hope it is out soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from the excellent Scott Hunter 13 Oct. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Another case for DCI Moran, surely Reading's most unfortunate detective. The bodies pile up thick and fast in this compelling novel that combines complex twists with deftly handled - and at times slightly controversial - subject matter. Scott Hunter is a real star of this genre. Surely only a matter if time before this follows Midsomer Murders and Morse on to the small screen, or perhaps even the silver screen. I read this total page turner on holiday and couldn't put it down. Couldn't give it a higher recommendation. Looking forward to the next instalment Scott.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creatures of Dust 15 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
A gripping page-turning read. Good characterisation of the protagonists and believable storyline. There are some formatting issues on some scene changes as mentioned by another reviewer but this doesn't spoil the book. I look forward to Scott's next work. Exceptional value for money at less than a pound!

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do find that Scott Hunter gets the balance of his book writing just right. Just enough detail so you can paint the picture in your mind without overwhelming you with irrelevance, so you lose the pace of the book. I have yet to come across one of his books that I haven't thoroughly enjoyed.
