DCI Lorimer is on vacation with his wife on the Isle of Mull. Things are going well for them until news that a boy has been found bound and murdered. Of course Lorimer has to check it out and finds it strangely like a cold case of his own from twenty years ago. Of course Lorimer has to go poking his nose in everything and getting on the last nerve of the local detective, Stevie Crozier that has a chip on her shoulder. But they more they looking into the cases it becomes clear that Lorimer may have found his killer from twenty years ago. I really enjoyed this story. Lorimer is a great detective and once Crozier could start working with him things really took off. You have a killer that targets homo-sexual young men and you can see how he wants to turn himself in when his latest victim’s father is being blamed but he doesn’t really want to. I loved Lorimer’s past and the personal issues him and his wife had to deal with. Of course I didn’t really know how this was going to end with a couple red herrings thrown in to keep everything interesting. I love the DCI Lorimer series and can’t wait to catch up on the rest of the books. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Midnight doesn’t always happen in the middle of the night. It can also look different to each individual. It can ruin a favorite holiday location, mess with a town or tear a family apart. Midnight on the Isle of Mull is all this and more. Can anyone ever keep the midnight out? Detective Superintendent Lorimer and DI Crozier try, but also have to play an ego game while in the process. Thank you, Ms Gray for another DCI Lorimer novel. I look forward to many more. ***Book provided without charge by PICT.*** Submitted by
