Book Description

23 Mar 2006
Dr Steven Dunbar works for Sci-Med Inspectorate, a secretive agency that investigates crimes with links to the world of science. He is therefore bemused when the deathbed confession of a convicted psychopath lands on his desk. But it emerges that another man is already serving a life sentence for the brutal rape and murder of thirteen-year old Julie Summers - a man whose medical research once sent shockwaves through the scientific community. Dr David Little. Little is nine years into his life sentence. The evidence against him was indisputable: a perfect DNA match. When Dunbar is sent to Edinburgh to confirm the deathbed confession as a hoax, amongst the confusion, incompetency and deception that he encounters there, a new fear arises: what if the confession is true? A case that has already destroyed so many lives is forced to reopen. Dunbar is determined to discover the truth, even if it is finally revealed to be more horrific than anyone could have imagined...

5.0 out of 5 stars ANOTHER FINE THRILLER FROM KEN MCCLURE !!!! 1 Dec 2007
This is the second Ken McClure book I have read in as many weeks and like Past Lives is fast paced and a real page turner.

It begins like the previous reviewer has said with a confession of the real killer of a young girl and the hero of the book Dr Steven Dunbar has to work out why he has confessed and how the convicted killer came to be so convicted and why he had so much overwhelming evidence against him.

Working out who is responsible is difficult and there are a lot of complicated clues, which for the more intelligent discerning reader, are pure joy. This book, more than any other I have read in some time (and believe me I have read quite a number) is a real informative clueful joy, I would go as far as to say it is like verbal sedoku if there was such a thing.

I highly recommend it, but warn you, you won't be able to put it down so don't start reading it at midnight!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this book!! 29 Nov 2007
Yet another cracker from Ken McClure. Fast paced thriller that starts unusually with a confession from the real killer. So, how is it that someone else was convicted of a murder on crucial and indisputable evidence? Well that is for the author to know and you to find out, but you will thoroughly enjoy doing so. Fascinating reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Excellent Read From Ken McClure 4 Dec 2005
Another highly enjoyable medical mystery featuring Dr Steven Dunbar. A death bed confession from a dangerous serial killer, leads Dunbar to suspect a grave miscarriage of justice has been done. Despite hostility to his investigation, he is determined to get to the truth.
McClure`s highly readable style of writing makes this another compelling entry in this series of books. Definitly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 5th Steven Dunbar 29 Aug 2013
By Bobby
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really like Ken McClure's books, they do tend to be quite similar to each other compared to some of my other favourite authors but like my other favourite authors I know when I am in need of a good read I can go to one of their books and be fairly sure it will be easy to get into and a good story. This is easily my favourite Ken McClure, I read it some time ago but have downloaded the kindle copy to reread at some point.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blokey book 9 July 2013
By Fengirl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are looking for a book with elegant and refined language and a happy ending....then this is not for you. The characters are experiencing life at the slimy end and the text portrays this very well. As usual the doctor gets himself out of incredible situations and the baddie is seriously bad, but some of the other players are no angels either. Although I really HATE bad language in a book I don't really see how this one could work without it. Up to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended 24 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having received a call, a cleric crosses the moors in driving rain to attend to the last rites of a prisoner. However, rather than meeting a dying man seeking absolution, the detainee confesses to killing another young woman; the only problem is that another man has already served eight years of the sentence he received for her brutal murder......

I've read several of Ken McClure's well researched, fast-paced, easy-read thrillers but this is one of my favourites. Featuring the charismatic Dr Steven Dunbar as lead investigator both the richness of the plot and characters make this a very satisfying read.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm a fan! 28 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A terrific page-turner like all Ken Mcclure's books. I love the great detail that he puts in, the tiny details that paint a clear picture and make you feel that you are there with Steven Dunbar.

I am always on the lookout for more!
