McNamara Book Set One: Books One & Two Mayhem on Nightingale Street & Scents and Shadows (Roxana Nastase) ISBN 978-1-988397-70-2
Improbable killers. A stubborn and relentless detective. Misleading evidence.
To muddle the waters, a tempting young woman worms her way into the cold detective’s heart. McNamara, a Scottish C.I., fights crime in the streets of Edinburgh and 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 at avoiding any kind of sentimental involvement.
In the first novel, the C.I. chases an elusive killer who blends well with the people on Nightingale Street and makes the police run in a circle. A scream wakes everyone living on Nightingale Street and unleashes a series of events that will dig up secrets and turn the peaceful suburban street into a nightmare. People will need to figure out where or who to turn to. General mistrust accompanies the manhunt.
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.
The second novel of the series will baffle you. Nothing is what it seems to be.
A beheaded victim leads to revealing a sordid story. Throw a new crime in the middle; you may get lost in the evidence.
Follow McNamara and his team in his quest to find a bold murderer. Even though many might think the killer should be decorated, McNamara must follow the letter of the law.
A shy love story seasons the darkness of the crimes.
If you love an excellent traditional crime story, this book is yours.
Buy it and spend a lovely afternoon – or two with a compelling and riveting story. Join McNamara in his hunt and fall in love with the young woman who catches his eye. Intrigue, suspense, cynical humour, and unique characters create a thrilling atmosphere.
