Oh lordy. How do I even begin to write this review? As I sit here I have a big smile on my face just thinking about this book. Now don’t get me wrong. This is a very serious subject. People are being abducted and murdered all over Oldcastle, a place which has already seen more than its fair share of death and tragedy. And they are being done for in a very, very gruesome, if somewhat inventive way. And with part of the team, the ‘Misfit Mob’ being diverted to look into dismembered body parts, it is left to the ultimate misfit, DC Callum MacGregor, to find out the source of the mummified remains found at the tip.

Now the fun begins even before the mummified remains are found and what happens in the opening sequence involving Callum pretty well sums up how things are going to go for the poor chap throughout the rest of the novel. Talk about beaten up. He is manhandled in his privates, bitten and beaten; just a few of the many indignities meted against him. On top of this he suffers relationship woes and is under investigation for cocking up a crime scene. So being dumped with the mummy is just the sign of another day in paradise. Or… not.

Now you can’t help but like Callum. He is the ultimate put upon Detective. If something can go wrong then it will go wrong and yet he doesn’t give up. He bears the brunt of jibes and mistrust from his colleagues and still he perseveres. He has a very troubled past, as all good fictional Detectives should have, one which is brought to a head (pun absolutely intended and when you read it you’ll understand why) during the investigation, and he is a very dangerous man to be around, if only because he is like a homing beacon to every available nutter with every mode of attack possible.

I'm not too sure what to say. I love Stuart McBride, I've read everything he's written and that's why, unusually for me, I paid full price for this book. It's not a bad book, how could it be, it was written by Stuart McBride, but it's not brilliant. I figured it out before I was halfway through and I became frustrated after that. Also, the "hero" could've been Logan McCrae, he read like him and I got the same feeling but unlike those books, I don't have the same relationship and it's hard to care. So ... wish I hadn't spent £10!!

Dark, creepy and very long but Stuart MacBride is a master of the genre and his books are always thrilling page-turners.

A satire on the genre this may well be, but the thing about satire is the very thin line between less is more and more is too much. But I still stayed up reading until well after lights out to get to the end.
