Prayer for the Dead is the fifth book in James Oswald's Inspector McLean series featuring the troubled detective who sees things most other detectives don't. This book sees Tony teaming up with an unlikely ally, a journalist who has been a thorn in his side in the past. However another journalist has gone missing and is soon discovered dead, murdered in a bizarre ritual. With no forensic evidence to go on Tony must use his hunches and insights to discover the killer but as the body count mounts and no suspect is revealed Tony must visit the ghosts of the past before the killer comes far too close to home. I love this series they are far from your average police procedural as the paranormal and the spiritual are a subtle but important part of the story and the characters are a wonderful cast, well worth revisiting.
