STRAINS OF INNOCENCE

DCI McNeill - Book 2

A cold-blooded killer. A twisted mind. A unique agenda.

Battling unresolved trauma from his past, Mac is pitted against his most devious adversary yet.

DCI McNeill, leading Edinburgh’s Serious Crime Unit, faces a case that defies logic when a series of chilling murders thrusts him into a treacherous hunt for justice.

The killer, once at the peak of power, now orchestrates his schemes from the shadows, weaving a complex web of deceit. Harbouring a sinister agenda, his clever manipulation challenges McNeill's every instinct, escalating tension, distrust, and confusion, both professionally and personally.

The investigation takes a harrowing turn when Clio and her daughter are ensnared in the killer's intricate plot. As the true scale of the deception emerges and more lives hang in the balance, McNeill races against the clock in a desperate bid to save the next victim. Alongside his detective constable, he confronts the peril head-on, staking his sanity, his job and his life to prove the truth.

But with the clock ticking and everything to lose, will he get there in time?
