She began to scrape at the mortar. A few minutes later she was able to prise the edge of the brick loose. The resulting rush of foetid air made her gag, but she focussed her torch beam on the enlarged hole and peered inside.
Her eyes widened in horror.
When art student Jude Evans vanishes on a photographic visit to a derelict Glasgow cinema, her friend Liam enlists the help of his birth mother - forensic scientist Dr Rhona MacLeod - in his search for her. Visiting other cinemas on her list, they find clues to her disappearance and to the horrifying secret she may have discovered behind those walls.
Throughout the investigation, Rhona must deal with the news that a face from her past is literally back from the dead - but for how long?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
PICTURE HER DEAD (Rhona Macleod #8) by Lin Anderson is an excellent installment in this Scottish noir series. I would advise reading the series in order. Although the forensic cases are all different, certain key characters move in and out of the various storylines. (I don’t want to give anything away.) PICTURE HER DEAD has particularly gritty, odious and violent subject matter. There is some closure at the end, as some previous story lines are ‘wrapped up’. (or appear to be. One never knows with Ms. Anderson.)
