Breath of fresh air
on 11 February 2012
The Unburied Dead intoduces us to DS Thomas Hutton - he's drunken, divorced, ex-army, sleeping with the boss & has just landed slap bang in the middle of a brutal murder case. He's also a very engaging narrator - has an eye for the grotesque & a wicked sense of humour that just about keeps him sane. Put all this together & mix it with a big pinch of polis corruption & you end up with a thoroughly enjoyable & entertaining read.
I haven't read any previous Douglas Lindsay books but on this form that won't be the case for long. He has a great writing style and breathes new life into a well trodden genre. Brilliant
