What to expect

A disturbing discovery is made in a Glasgow cemetery in Easy Kill, the fifth novel in Lin Anderson’s forensic crime series featuring Rhona MacLeod.

A vulnerable young woman has been brutally slain and left on a grave in Glasgow’s sprawling cemetery, the Necropolis. Upon examining the body, forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod has no doubt that the depraved killer’s motives were sexual in nature.

The case takes on an even more disturbing dimension when the removal of the girl’s body reveals a second victim, who has recently been buried in a shallow grave underneath. When yet another sex worker is reported missing, there are fears that a serial killer is at large in the city.

This man has killed before – and will again unless Rhona can break the chain and track him down before any more lives are lost . . .

Critics Review

  • Forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod has become one of the most satisfying characters in modern crime fiction — honourable, inquisitive and yet plagued by doubts and, sometimes, fears . . . As ever, the landscape is stunningly evoked and MacLeod’s decency and humanity shine through on every page

    Daily Mail
  • The best Scottish crime series since Rebus

    Daily Record
  • The bleak landscape is beautifully described, giving this popular series a new lease of life

    Sunday Times
  • Lin Anderson is one of Scotland’s national treasures – don’t be fooled by comparisons, her writing is unique, bringing warmth and depth to even the seediest parts of Glasgow. Lin’s Rhona MacLeod is a complex and compelling heroine who just gets better with every outing

    Stuart MacBride
  • Hugely imaginative and exciting
