Improbable killers. A stubborn and relentless detective. Misleading evidence. To muddle the waters, a tempting young woman worms her way in the cold detective’s heart.
McNamara, a Scottish C.I., fights crime in the streets of Edinburgh and in its suburbs. Diagnosed with Asperger as a child, the detective is meticulous, cold and dedicated. He is interested in doing his job and is a master in avoiding any kind of sentimental involvement.
In the first novel, the C.I. chases an elusive killer who blends well with the people on the Nightingale Street and makes the police run in circle.
A scream wakes up everyone living on Nightingale Street and unleashes a series of events that will dig up secrets and turn the peaceful suburban street into a living nightmare. People won't know where or who to turn to. General mistrust accompanies the man hunt.
Surprisingly, the Chief-Inspector, known to everyone as a cold man, seems to lose his mind when he meets a young woman caught in the events.

A beheaded victim leads to revealing a sordid story. Throw a new crime in the middle, and you may get lost in the evidence.

A shy love story seasons the darkness of the crimes.

This is a interesting sort of book, a book that I did not think I would enjoy, but I really did. There was a lot to like - the storyline was intriguing, the characters multi facet and believable, a romance and a mystery. The story takes you straight in, and has more meat in the character department then most mysteries..
There are two stories in this book, the firs one being full length and the second more like a short story which follows the romance
