Product description

About the Author

Ed James writes crime fiction novels, predominantly the Scott Cullen series of police procedurals set in Edinburgh and the surrounding Lothians - the first three are available now, starting with GHOST IN THE MACHINE, and he's writing the fourth. His next book features vampires but not Scott Cullen. Ed also writes science fiction and mainstream fiction, but with a crime bent, but hasn't published any of them yet. Ed lives in the East Lothian countryside, 25 miles east of Edinburgh, with his girlfriend, six rescue moggies, two retired greyhounds, a flock of ex-battery chickens and eight rescue ducks across two breeds and two genders (though the boys don't lay eggs). He works in IT, but doesn't wear sandals or have a beard. His blog - edjamesauthor.com - is a log of his work, his thoughts on his writing, and a place for his word count OCD to express itself. His music tastes will creep in now and again.

I enjoyed this book. A body is discovered in a barrel of whisky dated 1994 and the investigation starts. The body could be either of 2 men who disappeared at roughly the same time in 1994 but then it could be someone else entirely if the barrel was filled at another date. I liked the way the investigation meandered through all the possibilities, false leads and obstruction as it made it all sound very lifelike. The characterisation is good and again very lifelike. We've all met and worked with idiots like DI Bain and arrogant glory hunters like DC Cullen, no you didn't read it wrongly the man seems incapable of following orders because he knows better and to me that is holding up the promotion he feels he deserves. I'm looking forward to the.next book to see if he'll eat a little humble pie and become the rounded person he could be.

never could come up with the murder and why they did it. This is what I love in a good crime story your left guess the whole time

I would never have thought of whiskey could be used to kill some one. I don't think I look at Whiskey again without thinking was some one in the barrel lol. It's a genuine move and the authors part and love to know where he comes up with them.

I love how ED James writes I find when I pick up his books it's the most enjoyable read. I can't wait to see what comes next for Scott Cullen and his acting ADC Anglia Caldwell and both their love interest

Book 3 in the Scott Cullen mysteries and the series goes from strength to strength.

The story this time revolves around the finding of a body in a whiskey cask at the Dunpender Distillery. The body could be one of two people, a son of the distillery owner or a former worker - both have been missing since distillation in 1994.

Again, Cullen and his boss Brian Bain continue to rub each other up the wrong way and these interactions add to the general mixture of characters in the investigating team.

The story rattles along at a good pace and the ending really ratchets things up a notch.

Looking forward to more in the series

I like police crime novels that are set in UK. I particularly like the Scott Cullen books which are set in Edinburgh. I live 30 miles outside the city so the places are very familiar to me. I have enjoyed the books and would recommend them but there is one drawback for me and that's the number of names each character goes by. It's police based so the last name is used when they are at work, then in their personal life first names are used and then the DI has nicknames (sometimes two) for everyone. As there are a lot of characters it all gets a bit tiresome.Unfortunately I thought the ending of this book was abrupt and predictable.

Another amazing entry into the Cullen saga kept its cards close to its chest throughout leading your mind though the investigation at least 4 times I was sure who had done it only to be fooled again. Deep story and characters well researched. I'm not sure the Bain criticism is fair I like him and a man under pressure in a large scale murder investigation could very well act.like this. He doesn't do it in public only in departmental meetings with lower rank officers entirely plausible I think.
