THE NIGHT HUNTER an absolutely gripping Scottish crime thriller (Detectives Anderson and Costello Mystery Book 5) (English Edition) Format Kindle
“Super tartan noir with a tight and twisty plot and compelling characters.” Marie
A CHILLING ONE-OFF IN THE ANDERSON & COSTELLO SERIES, TOLD FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF THE ENIGMATIC ELVIE.
Elvie McCulloch’s sister Sophie has been missing for 57 days. She went out for a run — and never came home.
Then Elvie is driving home one night. The naked, emaciated body of a young woman crashes from high above onto an oncoming car.
Elvie recognizes her as Lorna Lennox, who’s also been missing for weeks. But how did she fall from so high? Where had she been all this time? And why was she running for her life?
Elvie teams up with retired — and disgraced — detective Billy Hopkins. The duo work with Anderson and Costello to find out what happened to Sophie and the other missing girls.
But they’re up against a terrifying enemy: The Night Hunter. And time is running out for Sophie.
CARO RAMSAY’S ELECTRIFYING THRILLER THAT SHOWS ANDERSON & COSTELLO FROM A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE.
Fans of Ian Rankin, Val McDermid, Denise Mina, Matt Brolly, Carol Wyer, Joy Ellis, Stuart MacBride, Angela Marsons, Helen H. Durrant, JD Kirk, DS Butler and LJ Ross will love this series.
WHAT READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT THE NIGHT HUNTER:
“Caro Ramsay has taken the intriguing step of showing us the police through the eyes of someone else, and it works, bringing a fresh slant to her series . . . Elvie is undoubtedly the star of a clever, well-constructed and decidedly gripping story.” crimereview.co.uk
“Ramsay’s insights into tortured psyches makes for compelling, if often painful, reading.” Publishers Weekly
“This book is definitely one chiller of a thriller.” Judy
“The change in perspective makes for an interesting twist in the series.” Anetq
“The plot is truly chilling, especially as the author ramps up the tension and the pace towards a gripping ending to this mystery.” Cleopatra
“Really enjoyed this exciting thriller. I like Caro Ramsay’s books and love the characters of Anderson & Costello. This was one was a bit different as although they featured, they were on the sidelines, however this does not detract from the story.” Ruth
DI Colin Anderson: A well-qualified graduate with true Scottish grit. He’s calm, efficient and focused — despite his marriage falling apart, and the fact that he’s just a tiny bit in love with the boss’s wife.
DS Winifred “Freddie” Costello: Pithy, sometimes crabbit (as they say in Glasgow), Costello is incredibly capable, but not above pushing boundaries when needed. She’s a well-respected officer who always puts police work first. She’s had a crush on DCI McAlpine for many years now, but that doesn’t stop her getting the job done.
Drizzly, grey Glasgow and its seedy backstreets along with up-and-coming new estates is the setting for this gritty series. The realities of poverty and crime are laid bare — with the underfunded police department trying to keep the damn from breaking.

If the author was bored with the format of the first four books in this series which I thought were very good, she should have stopped at number four.
I`ve already bought the sixth and final book and can only hope it explains some of what`s been left unsaid in this book, ties up the loose ends from book four and is easier to follow than this one.
She has turned from a pretty young girl to a hairy faced, acne ridden hulk.
Life is not easy, when you resemble the movie man, who frightens children.
At her parent's home her mother drinks to shut out her fear sister Sophie is dead, her mother's boyfriend Rod does his best to hold it all together, but it's not working. Her brother, Grant is not right, he continually acts out, causing more friction in an already fractured household. No one knows what is wrong, but he cries for hours in his room, he rants and rages.
Meanwhile Elvie wants her sister back. She follows what she knows, pesters Costello and her unique knowledge let's her into the investigation.
Elvis works as a nanny, her charge, Charlie is four and accepts her appearance, thinking she is a monkey person. His mother, Mary, lives her life in a gilded cage. Every movement monitored, at the back and call of her abusive and domineering husband, Alex Parnell. Elvie is her bodyguard, but feels sad for her and covers for her on occasion to save Mary from another beating.
Then there is Billy, ex copper, drinker, lacking social graces, but a good detective. He and Elvie team up to find Sophie and hopefully the other missing women.
Then there is Eric, a skilled carpenter and mechanic, working for one of Parnell's companies. Fascinated with water power and how it can be harnessed for multiple applications.
Quite a vast and they all have their public persona, whilst their private one varies to the subdued to the manic to the totally evil. Which one is which?
Read this very clever book and follow the twists and turns, which will lead you to the ultimate date of both Sophie and the other missing women.
The death count doesn't come from where you expect.
Finally, it’s a misnomer to call it an Anderson/Costello mystery. Anderson barely features and Costello is a bit player. It’s really more of a ‘ stand - alone novel
The theme was too convoluted, too unreal. But it gave me nightmares!
