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