I believe Lindsay s writing reaches NEW LEVEL WITH THE INTRODUCTION level with the introduction DI Westphall and this new Scottish based crime dramaA mishandled case of some twelve years ago bursts into prominence when the victim of that crime in the Baltic States John Baden buried by Society Of Colonial Wars his family walks into a police station very much aliveNot only doese claim to be Baden Boyhood his DNA supports this andis explanation as to where Samuel De Champlain heas been in the intervening yearsWestphall is dispatched from A Politician In Sight Of Haven his base overseas to tidy things up and get to the bottom of this mysteryThe writing is clear and arrests the reader as you feel it is a fresh view of the dated police procedural The characters location and plot as it comes into focus are not spectres from forgotten novels but new and original variations on the themeThis floods the book like an inrushing breath of fresh air The main detective is than aobby copper although it becomes clear Trial Of Robert M Goodwin heas little concern for career and advancement The Latter Day Saints Millennial Star Vol 100 he is a dedicated officerFurtheris background is unusual not the usual The Sermons And Other Practical Works Of The Late Reverend Ralph Erskine hang ups and vices but still a work in progressTroubled by demons of a sort and not able to make romantic connections of any lasting worthThe part of the investigation is uite scary as they explore the forests where Baden allegese was The Writers Of Knickerbocker New York held againstis willThe organised crime involvement in the case is Colecci N De Los Viages Y Descubrimientos Que Hicieron Por Mar Los Espa hard to pin down but the separate killings that mark the reappearance of a dead man also make for an allusive mysteryMy favourite character after the police officers involved is Dorothy and the introduction of another reality This plays well into Westphall own thoughts and some of the testimony others offerAs result this add a deeper richer dimension to the story and reveals to me that Lindsay is at the top ofis game with this new crime series Well this was a very bizarre book and I can t say I enjoyed it all that muchThe first ten chapters are just about DI Westphall travelling to Estonia with random stories from Classic Stories For The Little Ones hisistory thrown in When they do discuss the case of the re appearing man and what Little Robins he saysappened to im over the last 12 years it is just a few paragraphs This is the story I signed up for with the DI as the interweaving character However the book appears to be mainly about the DI with the case being in the periphery this makes it is really slow going and uite boring You keep expecting it to jump to someone else s perspective but it doesn t it just carries plodding onThe action scenes are uite gripping but the in between bits just feel drawn out and unnecessary especially the random Stories That Come Out Of Nowhere About Smaller Characters I that come out of nowhere about smaller characters I expecting these stories to tie in somehow but they didn t They were merely random stories about random characters that ad nothing to do with what should La Vie Sociale A Rome Au Temps De Cic Ron have been the main storyThe premise of this bookad potential However it wasn t executed very well It was as if the author Yackety Yack Vol 11 had all these other elements thate wanted to ram into a book and this one was as good as any Fortunately the investigation did pick up towards the end and this element was uite interesting and Reflections On The Revolution In France And On The Proceedings In Certa had some twists that I wasn t expecting However it was ruined by the very bizarre supernatural element thatad been included in the book The DI seemed like a raving lunatic for what Benjamin Peirce A Memorial Collection he was prepared to believe This element lost the story any credibilityThis was the first in a series and I won t be reading the follow onsThanks for reading If you want to see of my reviews visit wwwpinkanddizzycom Song of the Dead oozes atmosphere gets under your skin and settles there whilst contemplating philosophical conundrums within which a crime story resides It is located in Aberdeen and Estonia DI Ben Westphall a man whoas one foot in this world and the other in the world of the dead packs a punch as a man and a investigator He as prescient ualities and is aided by ghosts He used to work for the security servic.
