Pressestimmen

The hallmarks of Val McDermid or Ian Rankin: it's dark, violent, noirish (The Herald)

Crime fiction's next big thing (The Sunday Telegraph)

Literary sensation...James' overnight success has drawn comparisons with the meteoric rise of EL James and her Fifty Shades of Grey series (Daily Mail)

Fifty Shades of Hay (The Times)

Oswald is among the leaders in the new batch of excellent Scottish crime writers (Daily Mail)

The new Ian Rankin (Daily Record)

Classy, occasionally brutal, and with the odd suggestion of the supernatural, this will doubtless be another deserved hit. Oswald's writing is in a class above most in this genre and McLean - his rich, idealistic and all-too-human detective - is the perfect counterpoint to Ian Rankin's cynical Inspector Rebus (Daily Express)

Kurzbeschreibung

The Hangman's Song is the thrilling third novel in James Oswald's Inspector McLean series set in Edinburgh.



Look out for the fourth instalment in the bestselling Inspector McLean series, Dead Men's Bones, available for pre-order from Penguin.



A young man is found hanging by a rope in his Edinburgh home. A simple, sad suicide, yet Detective Inspector Tony McLean is puzzled by the curious suicide note. A second hanged man and another strange note hint at a sinister pattern.



Investigating a brutal prostitution and human trafficking ring, McLean struggles to find time to link the two suicides. But the discovery of a third convinces him of malicious intent.



Digging deeper, McLean finds answers much closer to home than he expects. Something terrifying stalks the city streets, and bringing it to justice may destroy all he holds dear.



The first two titles in the series, Natural Causes and The Book of Souls, are both available as Penguin Paperbacks and ebooks.

3.0 von 5 Sternen OK but forget the esoteric stuff 18. Juni 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This started out as a normal and satisfying detective story, well-plotted, characters who live and breathe. If it had stayed that way I would have given it 5 stars. Unfortunately some ghostly spiritual demonic stuff crept in and spoilt it. If you like that kind of thing then this book is for you. I won't buy any books by this guy again.

Another good story. It is a mix of rational policing with esoteric twists. How many more hangings will there be?

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spellbinding 14. Juni 2014
Von Auntie Annie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
James Oswald really captures you and keeps you spellbound until the final page. This is the second of his books that I have read, and both times I hardly put it down to eat or sleep. The Hangman's Song is the sequel to The Book of Souls though either book can stand alone. Tony McLean is living in the home he inherited from his grandmother. Though he has received a promotion, he is still hampered by inept bosses and corrupt policemen. As always, he simply does as he feels compelled, taking the flack that accompanies his inability to overlook wrong doing or to follow precedure. He is investigating a series of apparent suicides of young people--suicides that are all accomplished by hanging, with exactly the same noose, exactly the same type of rope, in exactly the same manner. Higher ups see no connection, so McLean, and those few officers who trust him, must pursue the case beyond official channels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Like all purveyors of print in the world 7. September 2014
Von Richard Gollin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
There are a number of threads running through criticisms of this series.

The first is just snobbery because Mr Oswald began writing and selling on the internet. Well , you certainly can not turn back time (as the song reminds us) and the internet has offered an alternative route to success to both writers and musicians who would otherwise have to deal with a growing mountain of rejection slips. There are now over ten authors in the US (and at least two pianists) with sales of over a million from starting on line. Publishers have had to form a line and grovel in order to buy the book rights of these authors and have had to do so on the author's terms. The critic who thought Penguin books would regret signing Mr Oswald must now feel rather foolish. Like all purveyors of print in the world ,Penguin books are, indeed, beleaguered but they must be highly delighted to have the rights to Mr Oswald's series.

Then there is the comparison with Mr Rankin's Edinburgh books. Like all comparisons of authors this is rather invidious and not helped by the publishers blurb. Personally I have never been able to get into Mr Rankins series (or all those horsey thrillers, or the girly bail bondperson series, or any series by an American author who delegates the actual writing of the book - yuk!). But that is not the point; Mr Oswald is not the 'NEW' Rankin , just the old Oswald and his books will stand or fall on their own merits.

Finally one is tempted to join in the criticisms of the sheer amount of occult, devil worship and downright witchcraft going on in Edinburgh in these books, Especially as I have always thought Edinburgh a rather earthly little city, if totally charming. This seems to be a logical criticism until one realizes that the genre of thrillers is dominated by murder and that there are only a handful of murders in Britain each year. There are only a tiny number if you subtract 'domestics' (usually men killing their present or past partner). So there may actually be more witchcraft in Edinburgh than there are murders. I'll just have to get used to it; after all Don't Look Back seemed to fit Venice so well. Basically , these are Mr Oswald's books and he can do what he damn well likes with them. As customers we can always 'walk' any time we want.

The reasons for this being unlikely are many ! Firstly Mr Oswald is a brilliant spinner of a yarn. He is simply a story teller par excellence and you cannot help wanting to read on and follow his very sympathetic Detective Inspector Maclean (maybe descended from a gaelic speaking highlander or islander with that name). I see a lot of reviewers describe the series as 'Police Procedure ' books. I am not sure what they mean exactly, but I would be sure that the description of life inside a major Edinburgh police station is wildly inaccurate; there seem so few people in the police station. Even Stornoway police station has more!

No , apart from the rapid and engrossing storytelling it is the ensemble of characters which are the magnet of the series. Mr Oswald has quite simply created a masterful ensemble to investigate these sometimes dreadful crimes. To just mention a few,there is the bashful DC MacBride, and the wonderful Grumpy Bob who might seem to be dedicated to doing absolutely nothing but always comes good when needed. Above all, in Acting Chief Superintendent Dagwood he has created a comic masterpiece , with all the characteristics of every useless bullying boss you have ever had.

So these are unmissable books. If one wanted a request for the future, I note that Mr Oswald farms in Fife so it might be nice if DI Maclean was seconded (or banished by Dagwood!) to Fife for goings on in the Neuk peninsular or the very bizarre Scottish A Bomb shelter lurking out there!

James Oswald Book 3
The Hangmans Song.
Set in Edinburgh you follow detective inspector Tony McLean and his " team" as they try to solve the many crimes that come their way.
If you have read the first two books in this series you will be familiar with the characters and enjoy this book. James Oswald has a knack of keeping you guessing all the way to the end. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a mystery and police procedures.
5 stars. 08 April 2014.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful book and series 15. August 2014
Von Almax - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
As all readers of Scottish police procedural series know, we are blessed with a plethora of great authors. James Oswald,is no exception,,His inspector McLean series swells the ranks magnificently, I have now read the whole series and thoroughly recommend anyone to do the same. Its probably important to read them in order,as certain story lines and characters flow through the series (especially the cat). I honestly cant recommend this series too highly,and can't wait for the next one

5.0 von 5 Sternen Clever! 28. Mai 2014
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I raced through it and enjoyed every bit. I have read the previous two books and everything is very cleverly resolved - although it leaves some few threads hanging with the possibility of hearing more about Inspector Macleans troubles in another book. As always I enjoyed the Scottish background and different settings. The Inspector himself is a very likeable character.
