It's a wonder Anderson's solid procedurals about Scottish forensic scientist Rhona MacLeod haven't yet been turned into an ITV drama series. Till then, this fourth book will do nicely for those who like a gory mystery with a tidy plot in which everything conveniently connects. Anderson marshals all the elements of a good crime novel most efficiently, and the book moves at a fair pace.

Continuing with a 'Scottish' theme this weekend I moved from Rankin's Edinburgh to Lin Anderson's Glasgow!
This series captured me a while back and this 4th book about Rhonda MacLeod was back on form after what was a slightly weird 3rd book in the series. Dark Flight was dark and wonderful ... and as one of the
book reviews says ' A sexy new rival for old Rebus...'.
This was, for me, one of the best books in this series. The characters have grown and the background stories of their personal lives are starting to make a statement. The actual case in this book was well written and full of twists. The story was well written and as a reader you are well informed about everything you need to know to have everything make sense.
I liked the 'African' angle in this book, and the link of Glasgow with Nigeria is just one of the aspects of this story that the author obviously did a lot of research about, and I actually at some points really felt I was 'there' because of the great descriptions and writing style.
I am soooo looking forward to another in this series. I am sure it will be a while though.

Wow, this one opens with a proverbial slap to the face and continues to relish in the detail. Disturbing and convincing , you will be looking over your shoulder afterwards! The characters and atmosphere is so well written that I quickly slipped in to that lovely place where the reader immerses themself in the novel. Enjoy, but not for the squeamish if vivid detail and raw sexuality is not your thing.

DARK FLIGHT REVIEWS

Follow Lin Anderson on Twitter

DARK FLIGHT, the fourth novel in the Rhona MacLeod series, was published in hardback by Hodder on 26th July 2007.

The adventures of Anderson's heroine Rhona MacLeod, the sexy thirty-something forensic scientist from Glasgow at the heart of this, the author's fourth novel, would make Ian Rankin's old man Rebus choke on his whisky chaser. Which is just the reaction that Anderson is looking for. "Every one of my books begins with a very scary scene" she explains.
Dark Flight certainly knows how to splash the red stuff. Anderson's  tale of black magic, ritual sacrifice, and child abduction chills the blood.

THE BIG ISSUE

 
fantastically interesting, very enjoyable, and truly, truly disturbing ...
Lin Anderson was interviewed when DARK FLIGHT was featured on BBC Radio FIVE LIVE for Simon Mayo's Book Panel.

The house was a bloodbath - the younger woman mutilated, the older woman dead at the hands of a killer she probably didn't even see.

In the blood was a footprint belonging to the crime's only potential witness - a six-year-old boy who had vanished, leaving behind a macabre clue - bones tied in the shape of a diagonal cross.
It's a gut-wrenching kill that takes forensic scientist Dr. Rhona McLeod from the cold streets of Glasgow to the searing heat of Nigeria, in search of the demons that demand the ultimate sacrifice. Forget Las Vegas, forget Miami, this is CSI Dowanhill and it'll keep your adrenalin pumping from the first terrifying page until the last.
 

PETRONA website :-
Pat Austin on Dark Flight by Lin Anderson: "I especially liked the way Anderson took a story that is fairly common knowledge and wove it into her plot. The characters are rounded and believable and the relationships well drawn. The plot speeds along, from Glasgow to Nigeria and is full of tension and suspense."
