Competitions: Win a proof of All That Lives by James Oswald

plus, an exclusive excerpt preview to be revealed!

We’ll be releasing an exclusive preview extract from the twelfth book in the Sunday Times-bestselling phenomenon that is the Inspector McLean series, from one of Scotland’s most celebrated crime writers, James Oswald on Friday 17th September!

An archaeological dig at the old South Leith parish kirkyard has turned up a mysterious body dating from around 700 years ago. The experts wonder if she wasn’t murdered and dumped, but some suspect that this gruesome discovery is a sacrifice, placed there for a specific purpose.

Then a second body is unearthed. This victim went missing only thirty years ago – but the similarities between her death and the ancient body’s suggest something even more disturbing.

Drawn into the investigation, McLean finds himself torn between a worrying trend of violent drug-related deaths and uncovering what truly connects these bodies. When a third body is discovered, and too close for comfort, he begins to suspect dark purpose at play – and that whoever put them there is far from finished.

ALL THAT LIVES, the new Inspector McLean novel publishes in February 2022. The latest in the series, WHAT WILL BURN, is out in paperback on 30th September. And NOWHERE TO RUN, the new novel in the Constance Fairchild series, publishes on 11th November.

To celebrate, we’re giving away ten proof copies of the book. Simply enter your details below to enter, and a winner will be chosen at random. Competition open to UK residents until midnight on 21st September. Normal Bloody Scotland terms and conditions apply.
