Something very sinister is going on behind the scenes at Glasgow's West End Festival parade in the compelling new Anderson and Costello mystery. Paige Riley has been missing for a week. Not that anyone cares much about the homeless heroin addict. The case remains open but inactive; left standing still until something comes up. Meanwhile, Glasgow's citizens are in celebratory mood for the annual West End Festival parade. But beneath the jovial surface lurks something darker. A confused young woman is found wandering among the clowns, stilt-walkers and jostling crowds, claiming to have been abducted by aliens. She had originally disappeared the night before. What happened to her in those intervening hours? Before DCI Anderson and DI Costello can find out, a body is discovered. Is there a connection? As the two detectives investigate, it becomes horrifyingly clear that a depraved killer has taken advantage of the busiest day of the year to carry out a gruesomely macabre plan.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Cathleen McCarron passionately delivers this mystery set in Glasgow. During a festival parade several people go missing, and a body is found folded into a box. McCarron deftly portrays a grieving mother and outspoken Detective Inspector Freddie Costello. The story's settings include a well-rendered nursing home for retired entertainers, where The Duchess--an elderly opera star--is doted upon by her son and Sandra Ryme, a cunning carer, steals things from the residents. Listeners will be shocked to hear how the murder victims are made to look like grotesque puppets. Anderson and Costello soon realize there's a madman at work. McCarron excels with virtuoso storytelling, description, and character portrayals, and her re-creation of a hypnosis scene is memorable. Subtle humor adds levity, and authentic-sounding Scots brogues provide atmosphere. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
