The Damage Done

James Oswald, Scotland’s grittiest crime writer, is back with the latest installment in his Inspector McLean series – The Damage Done.

Called to investigate a Vice Squad raid gone embarrassingly awry, Inspector Tony McLean finds himself haunted by echoes of his first case. Something he had thought long buried has now resurfaced, and the memory won’t fade as McLean struggles to find the elusive connections between a series of gruesomely strange deaths in the city. When his investigations begin to entangle the city’s elite in a dark web of intrigue, McLean’s refusal to compromise his integrity puts his career, and possibly even his life, in danger. In chasing the monsters of the present, McLean must also confront shadows of the past – but at what cost? Is it too late to undo the damage that has been done…

This is the sixth book in the best-selling series, from the author who has been hailed as ‘The new Ian Rankin’ (Daily Record). James Oswald also writes an acclaimed fantasy series, The Ballad of Sir Benfro, and runs a farm in North-East Fife.
