Overview
When Thomas Magner's business partner is found dead in his car on the outskirts of St. Andrews, all evidence points to suicide. Meanwhile Magner, a wealthy property developer, is under investigation for a series of alleged rapes almost thirty years ago. In total, eleven women are prepared to go to court to testify against him, but one by one they withdraw their complaints until only six remain. With the procurator fiscal now reconsidering her case, one of the remaining accusers is found brutally murdered in her home. Even though Magner's alibi is rock solid, DCI Andy Gilchrist is convinced he is somehow responsible. But as Gilchrist and his sidekick DS Jessie Janes dig deeper, they begin to expose Magner's murky past and uncover a horrifying secret that has lain dormant for decades. Was Magner a serial rapist in his youth? Or was he something much worse?

Did wealthy businessman Brian McCulloch gas himself in his Jaguar near St. Andrews or did he have help? Thats the question facing Det. Chief Insp. Andy Gilchrist in Muirs implausible and unnecessarily gory fifth Scottish police procedural (after 2015s Life for a Life). More shocking is what Gilchrist and his team at the Fife Constabulary, including his tough-as-nails sidekick, Det. Sgt. Jessie Janes, discover at McCullochs residence: the bodies of McCullochs two teenage daughters, showing no signs of violence, and his wife, whos been gutted, decapitated, and skinned. Gilchrist and Janes look to Thomas Magner, McCullochs business partner in Stratheden Enterprises, for answers. Magnerwhom 11 women have accused of rape in the pastis the obvious suspect, but he has too easy an alibi. Toward the end, Muir skews away from real detecting and into the realm of good guys and bad guys scrabbling in dark catacombs with a shotgun. Those wanting solid police work would do best to look elsewhere. (Apr.)
