Praise for Dead Men’s Bones:
“A gritty police procedural with incredible twists.”
—Robert Dugoni, #1 Amazon and New York Times bestselling author of My Sisters Grave

“Fans who enjoy their procedurals with a hint of the supernatural, as well as a cold and gloomy setting, will find much to enjoy.”
Publishers Weekly

“Readers who stay the course will be rewarded with an explosive ending and will agree with McLean that the best part of the job is ‘the hunt for clues, the slow puzzling out of just what had happened.’”

“Oswald’s fourth is a house of horrors that adds an above-par mystery to the usual supernatural touches.”
Kirkus Reviews

“McLean is a likeable character, always looking after his team and willing to go after the truth…This is a novel that will appeal to readers who like character-driven mysteries and those set in Scotland.”
San Francisco Book Review and Seattle Book Review, four stars

Praise for the Inspector McLean series:
“Oswald’s detective gives John Rebus a run for his money.”
Kirkus Reviews on The Book of Souls

“Engrossing…Readers will eagerly await the next installment.”
Publishers Weekly on The Book of Souls

“McLean is a reluctant, empathetic hero who refuses to quit until he’s solved the case.”
Publishers Weekly on The Hangman’s Song

“Readers who like character-driven murder mysteries such as those by John Connolly or Val MacDermid will enjoy McLean’s debut outing and clamor for more.”
Library Journal Xpress Reviews on Natural Causes

“Crime fiction’s next big thing.”
