I have read all of the books in this series. And to keep it short and sweet i loved it. I found the one liners really tickle my sense of humour and DI Steele is like a crazy aunt that you dread coming round because you know she will be chatting up your mates.Its also very descriptive of Aberdeen and you can really imagine the areas mentioned.Dont want to give the story away but would suggest it would be daft to start with this book if you have never read any of the authors books before. But as a parent i found it really creepy. Even more freaked out than i was reading Flesh House and that turned me veggie for a while. But well worth a read.As one of the previous posters said i cant believe that this series of books hasnt been picked up by a production company. Hopefully sometime soon.As long as the author gets a LOT of input!!! Almost makes me proud to be Aberdonian!!
