Grisly thriller set in Dublin
Picture Her Dead (#8 Rhona MacLeod )
Picture Her Dead is Lin Anderson’s eighth novel in the Rhona MacLeod series, which follows a Scottish forensic scientist as she navigates brutal murders and family drama in the criminal underworld of Glasgow. As ever, the vibrant characterisation of Rhona and her team of investigative colleagues brighten an otherwise macabre plot.
It opens with the disappearance of student Jude Evans while photographing one of Glasgow’s derelict cinemas for an art school project. Her friend Liam seeks the assistance of his birth mother, MacLeod, with whom he has recently got in contact. While at first the plot appears to follow a conventional route, Anderson’s focus on the scientific analysis of each crime scene makes the book refreshingly different from the average whodunit.
