The Art of Dying by Douglas Lindsay


A brand new police procedural series introducing DI Westphall, an ex-MI6 agent who has moved to the quiet town of Dingwall in the Scottish highlands.

Book 3 in the ‘dark and satisfying’ (James Oswald) DI Westphall series.

Praise for the DI Westphall series

‘Richly atmospheric . . . Lindsay solidifies his place as one of the rising stars of tartan noir’ Publishers Weekly

‘The Boy in the Well is a dark and satisfying mystery. I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the company of DI Ben Westphall, a compelling personality . . . This one comes thoroughly recommended’ James Oswald

A darkly atmospheric thriller with a labyrinthine plot with more twists than a Grand Prix track. (Michael Wood, author of the DCI Matilda Darke series)

A really addictive plot, and so atmospheric. Clever and unexpected (S D Sykes, author of the Oswald de Lacy series)

‘A Tartan Noir tour de force. Lindsay writes with an economy and skill all too rare in modern fiction . . . Brilliant’ Tony Black, author of the DI Bob Valentine series.

My Review

I wasn’t sure what I was getting myself into because there wasn’t much to go on in regards to a description, but I’m glad I went in blind anyway!

Spies and murder quickly become part of your world as you dragged into the story after only a few pages. I was quite intrigued my the storyline and even though it’s book #3 in the series, I didn’t feel like I missed out on anything!

If you’re looking for something to read this Labor Day weekend, this should be it! It’s hot off the press! 🙂
