Product Description

Product Description

After a fraught dinner with his ex-wife and her husband, Detective Inspector Jim Meldrum escapes early to drown the experience.

The next morning he awakes in an expensive Edinburgh hotel with bruised knuckles, aching ribs - and no memory of how he got there.

Over by the window, a woman he doesn’t know is getting dressed. If she is to be believed, they have spent the night together as lovers.

Later that day, the body of a man beaten to death is discovered in an unoccupied room of the second floor of the hotel - in the room next to the one in which Meldrum woke up.

Who was the dead man? And who killed him?

Tormented by doubts as to what might have happened during the lost hours on the night of the murder, Meldrum fears the answer may ruin his life.

Yet he conducts his search for the truth with unwavering integrity.

He will track down the killer...even if it might be himself.

'A Night To Forget' is a tense and chilling thriller of memory and murder. It is perfect for fans of Ian Rankin and Peter James.

Frederic Lindsay’s thrillers have been widely praised:

'Intelligent, entertaining, gripping and well-written' Ian Rankin

‘One of the most interesting thriller writers around’ The Scotsman

‘One of the most potent voices in contemporary Scottish fiction’ The Herald

'Lindsay can chill your soul' The Listener

4.0 out of 5 stars More murder mystery than thriller 14 Jun. 2014

I enjoyed this book. It begins with Meldrum waking up to find his knuckles scratched and he has obviously been in a fight. However he has no idea why? Was it alcohol or something else? And why was he in a hotel?
The plot twists and turns as the investigation gets underway.
I would definitely read another book in the series ☺️

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult read 6 Jun. 2014

I always finish a book no matter if the first few chapters are annoying. I persevered with this novel and did not find it was a "thriller" in any sense of the word. It was confusion from start to finish, there was no plot to speak of. no individual to speak of within the story line. I regret the critical reaction, but I am afraid this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read all three in the series, you will enjoy 21 Nov. 2013
By gayle corbett - Published on
This is the second in the Meldrum series and I have enjoyed them all. The plots are creative, and Meldrum is likable. Diverse relationships encompass a wide range of emotions. He is devoted to his job, but interaction with more politically motivated higher ranks helps with the realism. There is a twist to this one that you just don't see coming. If you like the genre, Mr. Lindsay is a good read. I haven't read one of his books that has not hooked me.

Read the sample to get you started. I don't give specific details in my reviews as it's like someone telling you the end of a movie when you haven't seen it yet!
