The Hangman's Song by James Oswald

The Hangman's Song (Inspector McLean, #3)The Hangman's Song by James Oswald
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mysterious hangings capture Tony McLean's attention in James Oswald' third offering in this series. Unfortunately for Tony his colleagues are looking for the easy life and dismiss them as regular suicides. At this point you are brought up to date with history relevant to this story obviously from the first two novels, it is done well with the author only providing the minimum information required to make sense. James Oswald paints a very graphic picture of the crime scenes and you almost feel as if you are there. Death and injury seems to personally follow Tony McLean and this book is no different, his life is continually being shattered by unfortunate happenings. Overall this is not a bad murder / detective mystery, I would have preferred however a different approach to the ending.
