Book Description

Where the hell had the kid found a human skull? McNab heard an intake of breath behind him as someone else made out the shape in the torchlight. A metre away now, McNab crouched on a level with the child. 'Where did you find that, Emma?' he said softly. She stared at him. 'I was lost. I heard them calling me.'

When Claire regains consciousness after a stranger causes her car to crash in a snowstorm, she is frantic to discover her nine-year-old daughter Emma missing from the back seat. Then Emma is found in the woods nearby, unharmed but cradling a child's skull. She claims it 'called to her' - and she can hear another voice nearby...

Meanwhile, forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod is trying to discover the identity of a corpse found badly burned in a skip. The body is wearing a soldier's ID tag, but DNA tests show it's not him. When DS Michael McNab asks for her help identifying the remains Emma found, they discover the two cases are linked in ways they could never have imagined...

Lin Anderson, author of DRIFTNET and EASY KILL, has written her most powerful novel to date.

Product Description


'The procedural details are spot-on, the storylines sharp and inventive, but it's the characterisation that makes Anderson's work truly special. CSI Vegas has Grissom, CSI Miami has Horatio Cane. In the Glasgow crime scene team, Dr MacLeod has the skill, instinct and balls to match up to her American counterparts.' (Shari Low, Daily Record)

If you enjoy crime fiction that has a leaning to the forensic - or even if you just like an intriguing read - my advice is to make Lin Anderson your go-to crime writer. The forensic and police procedural details are spot on, the characters engaging and the plot never short of compelling. ( on FINAL CUT)

One of the best books I have read in ages for creating and maintaining suspense ( on FINAL CUT)

Lin Anderson is one of Scotland's national treasures; don't be fooled by comparisons, her writing is unique, bringing warmth and depth to even the seediest parts of Glasgow. Lin's Rhona MacLeod is a complex and compelling heroine who just gets better with every outing. (Stuart MacBride, author of Cold Granite and Dying Light)

'Final Cut has all the required ingredients of a forensic thriller.' (Daily Mail)

Chills the blood . . . would make Ian Rankin's old man Rebus choke on his whisky chaser. (Big Issue on DARK FLIGHT)

I was absolutely gripped... very enjoyable and truly, truly disturbing... (Radio 5 Live on DARK FLIGHT)

Book Description

Lin Anderson's books are like 'CSI: Glasgow', combining forensic investigation with a breakneck pace

5.0 out of 5 stars resonances of Glasgow 12 Oct. 2009
sixth in the canon, it keeps up the standard. A quick read close to the genre norm,
it satisfied the reader. A pity there are no more at present, I was left wanting more.

Anderson again makes her mark - Scottish crime fiction at its very best. Unsettling, gritty and a chillingly unexpected climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 8 April 2011
For me Lin Anderson has been a great find. Dark storytelling with a lightness of touch. Final Cut was interesting and unexpected. A definite page turner often as cold as the snow in the woods but heated by the race to save lives. I am looking forward to reading her earlier stories.

Read on average 2 books a week, find it hard to discover new authors i enjoy reading, picked up lin andersons book on the off chance, my daughter was at glasgow uni at the time so had an affection with the city.
Absolutely hooked, straight to bookshop ordered all the novels to date, wish she could write 3 times as many, one of lifes pleasures the anticipation of the next book out,case of pj's on, phone on silent and leave me in peace to read.
highly recommend the books, on a par with martina cole and some of the other great crime writers.
