James Oswald


A young man dead, discarded with all the other garbage. Just another nameless, faceless rent boy no-one will miss. But the search for clues to his identity leads DI Tony McLean in unexpected directions, new leads on old cases, deals that even the vice squad knew nothing about. It's almost as if the dots had been laid out just ready to be connected. But by whom? And why?



Less overtly paranormal, this story began as an idea of serendipity - one discovery leading on to another and another, and thus a series of crimes being solved or prevented. But the catalyst to it all, the event that kicks it all off, is never fully explained. Was it random luck, or was there something else at play?
