Releases Merch Mindocracy Family. The Engineer. Chris Perkins. I happened across this book in my public library and was disappointed to see we didn't have many more titles by him. This is my first an I loved this book from the very first page. This is my first and I imagine I will be making my way through everything else he is written slowly over the next couple years as I can get my hands on them.

May 20, Susan Angela Wallace rated it really liked it. John Baden went missing from his partner while on holiday. Emily king went to the police but they didn't want to know. This was a good read. Feb 13, Leslie rated it it was amazing. Completely wonderful.. Then a colleague commit suicide.

So, okay, it's not light but the characters are so deeply thought through and the gruesome crime very plausible if complex. Really recommend, and I'll be looking for other titles by this author. DI Ben Westphall investigates the strange case of a dead man come back to life, when John Baden walks into a police station in Estonia and announces he has just escaped captivity.

The only thing is, Baden's body was identified by his family and buried 12 years ago.

"Songs for the Dead #1" preview

This was an odd book to review. On the one hand, the crime element was interesting and I wanted to know what had happened, but on the other, the paranormal element sometimes slowed the plot down too much. One wonders how long a DI who DI Ben Westphall investigates the strange case of a dead man come back to life, when John Baden walks into a police station in Estonia and announces he has just escaped captivity. One wonders how long a DI who talked about time travel and doppelgangers would last in the real police force. There was also the fact the author listed a lot of the main character's actions: got up, showered, had egg on toast for breakfast, etc which I found took some getting used to.

For all that, I did read it until the end and I feel that actually this is a series I could grow to like, therefore I would definitely read the second book. Jan 16, Helen Leecy rated it it was ok. The first ten chapters are just about DI Westphall travelling to Estonia with random stories from his history thrown in.

When they do discuss the case of the re-appearing man and what he says happened to him over the last 12 years, it is just a few paragraphs. This is the story I signed up for, with the DI as the interweaving character. However, the book appears to be mainly about the DI with the case being in the periphery; this makes it is really slow going and quite boring. The action scenes are quite gripping, but the in-between bits just feel drawn out and unnecessary especially the random stories that come out of nowhere about smaller characters. They were merely random stories about random characters that had nothing to do with what should have been the main story.

However, it was ruined by the very bizarre supernatural element that had been included in the book. The DI seemed like a raving lunatic for what he was prepared to believe.

This element lost the story any credibility. This was the first in a series, and I won't be reading the follow-ons! Jan 16, Sandra rated it it was amazing Shelves: read , crime-thriller. I bought this in Stockbridge's Golden Hare bookshop, not having heard of the author but eager to buy someone new and was hooked from the first by the writing - rich and hugely competent - and then kept so by the tension of the developing plot and the strong characterisation. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Mar 15, Paperbacks rated it liked it. Song of the Dead isn't my usual read, but I really did want to change things up and whilst my day job usually steers me away from crime fiction there was something that drew me to this book and I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone for it.

It's a great premise, really quite creepy and more than a little gruesome at times.

It's a great mix though of thriller pacing with steady investigation and lots of interconnection between characters and location. The thing that made it really accessible fo Song of the Dead isn't my usual read, but I really did want to change things up and whilst my day job usually steers me away from crime fiction there was something that drew me to this book and I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone for it. The thing that made it really accessible for me though was the slight supernatural edge, for a straight laced plot there were pockets of story that almost felt like tiny interludes.

I really enjoyed this extra piece of parallel puzzle and it gave the plot a sometimes needed change of tone. The characters were very by the book and whilst there was nothing particularly outstanding about DI Westphall he was an enjoyable character to read. Just the right amount of jaded combined with an interesting back story which gave him kudos, but he was really the only star of the show. The supporting cast were pretty one dimensional and whilst they served a purpose I just felt that the character development would have been better focused on bringing the most out of one or two others than the extended cast that I struggled to remember at times There was a great deal I didn't see coming and I really liked how it kept me on my toes throughout.

It was a steady read with a driven plot which thankfully stopped just short of feeling like it was becoming ridiculous which I was very relieved about as I think one more demise would have just pushed it over the edge. Ultimately this is a really enjoyable read, particularly if you want a little oddity in your crime thriller. I'm not sure it's a series I would come back to but this is well worth the read if you're after a change of genre. With thanks to Netgalley and Hodder and Staunton for the review copy, whilst I received a copy for free all opinions are my own.

May 18, Janice rated it liked it Shelves: , kobo. Probably 3. I think I got this via a sale email from Kobo. It was described as "Tartan noir", and that intrigued me. Also, I'm kind of a sucker for police stories set in the UK. A UK citizen who was declared dead 12 years based on a body found in a lake suddenly turns up alive and traumatized. He'd apparently been held captive in an organ-harvesting operation in Estonia. DI Ben Westphall is sent to Estonia to try to find out what's going on. He has to deal with e Probably 3.

He has to deal with eastern European police and bureaucracy. He has to try to unravel what happened to the man, to the woman who identified the body, and to various other folks back in Scotland who've started dying all of a sudden. And he has to be able to do it without having to fly back to Scotland. I quite liked DI Westphall. He's a little unworldly, in spite of his background in specials forces or a spy agency not quite sure which.

I didn't love the parts in Estonia, but mostly because bad bureaucracy maybe turning a blind eye to other people doing bad things just depresses the hell out of me. But the whole plot is pretty solidly wound together. I like it, and though it didn't absolutely knock my socks off, I would be glad to read more by Douglas Lindsay. Feb 20, Mystica rated it really liked it. John Baden has been dead for twelve years. So when someone purporting to be him walks out of an Estonian forest claiming to be John Baden opens up a dead case which sees Ben Westphall go back to Estonia and then back to Inverness to track the case.

The case becomes stranger and stranger and facts begin to appear as fiction - as it becomes very complicated with overlapping characters and events. Ben Westphall our detective is himself carries an overlay of sadness, loss and desolation. He seems sli John Baden has been dead for twelve years. He seems slightly other worldish able to decipher feelings of loss and sadness in others and is able to read an atmosphere of most locations which seems out of place in a supposedly hard boiled detective, dealing with facts and figures.

The story is fantastic but intriguing. Not boring in the least but very complicated and at times I lost the thread of the story but I grasped it again soon enough. I like the characterizations and the descriptiveness of the physical surroundings of both Estonia and Scotland. Narrated in the first person, this is the first book in the DI Westhall series. He narrates as though it's coming straight out of his head, which can be a little difficult to keep up with.

Still, that's not really a negative, I got used to it pretty fast. It seems at first to be a typical mystery, except for the fact that the man who should be dead has been found alive, even though his body was identified 12 years ago. But that's not the only thing that's strange, and strange is the correct word Narrated in the first person, this is the first book in the DI Westhall series.

But that's not the only thing that's strange, and strange is the correct word to use here.

Add your thoughts

He's a bit strange himself, has a tendency to picture things in his mind, and then they happen. He's very good at reading people. He tends to overthink things sometimes, and to second-guess himself.

He also has conversations with people who are dead The strangeness is in the background, but yet you can't miss it. I really like this book, looking to read the next one! Dec 20, Alison Eden rated it liked it. SongOfTheDead NetGalley As always, I was excited to be reading book one of a crime series but sadly, on this occasion, it didn't really do it for me. The story itself was intriguing and when the action happened it was really gripping but I felt there was too much description and not enough action particularly in the first part of the book.

I also found the 'supernatural' element to add nothing to the book and, for me, it spoilt the whole realism of the story. It seemed odd the way that Dorothy SongOfTheDead NetGalley As always, I was excited to be reading book one of a crime series but sadly, on this occasion, it didn't really do it for me. It seemed odd the way that Dorothy appeared in the book to tell her time travel story and then appear in dreams to give Ben clues as to how to solve the crime. I also couldn't work out whether the style of writing was annoying to me - leaving out the I at the beginning of sentences!

Probably not, on the whole, but I did find it a little distracting.

New Fantasy Story Comes (Back) To Life In SONGS OF THE DEAD #1 Preview

Would I read more in this series? Not sure which is a shame because I had high hopes for this after reading the description. This was a really great read that oozed atmosphere. Song of the Dead was set in Aberdeen and Estonia. DI Ben Westphall definitely packed a punch as an investigator in this new series. The novel was steeped with melancholy, grief and loss and the complicated plot was great to try and work out. All of the characters were well drawn and interesting and the story had me gripped from the start.

I loved that the weather added its effects to the dark content present throughout the story.

This was a very This was a really great read that oozed atmosphere. This was a very intelligent, curious and extraordinary read that I cannot recommend highly enough. I will definitely be looking out for the next book in this series. Well worth five stars! This review is my own unbiased opinion. Oh how I struggled with this book. Initially wanted to read as it was recommended to fans of James Oswald, but I found this no where near the calibre of his writing and it was the style of writing that I think I struggled with the most. The story just seemed to jump from one situation to another with no warning whatsoever, there was a section towards the end of the book that I had to reread 4 times as I thought there must be pages missing as DI Westphall went from one situation to another in a c Oh how I struggled with this book.

The story just seemed to jump from one situation to another with no warning whatsoever, there was a section towards the end of the book that I had to reread 4 times as I thought there must be pages missing as DI Westphall went from one situation to another in a completely different location without any explanation at all. Normally I would lap this type of book but within a couple of days but I just found it too confusing to read, I see that there is another in the series, unfortunately I will not be looking to read that one as well.

Feb 27, Lacer rated it really liked it. Nov 17, Alan rated it liked it Shelves: reading-challenge , crime-fiction , mystery-fiction , estonian-locale. This one seemed to pile on the noir gloominess a tad too much. The lead investigator also seemed a bit clueless. The main plot of the villains and the final twist were rather unbelievable. Despite a foreboding dark clouded image of Tallinn, Estonia's Toompea Castle Hill on the cover, most of the Estonian scenes actually take place in the woods nearby to the Estonian city of Tartu.

The research around the Estonian segments did ring true at least e. Jan 06, Christine Rennie rated it liked it Shelves: kindle , netgalley. With thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for the book in exchange for an honest review. This was book 1 in the DI Westphall series and I found it a very gloomy and introspective book, which was very long and drawn out.

I kept thinking something would happen at the end to make it worthwhile carrying on reading to the end. Feb 24, Toofan rated it really liked it Shelves: audio-book , not-mm , douglas-lindsay. Audio Book. This book, due to its writing style as well as many unrelated side stories, needed a lot of concentration. Actually at one point I had to go back and start listening from the very beginning and this time I listened to it only when I could fully concentrate on the story. But it was worth it. View 2 comments. Jul 15, Kathleen rated it really liked it. I like this character, DI Ben Westphall, and want to learn more about him.

He seems to exist in a parallel reality and as a detective it is interesting. He picks up emotions in the environment and obviously as an investigator that would be a fascinating skill. There were some unanswered questions in this book relative to the characters so I look forward to the next installment. May 19, Kevan rated it it was amazing.

Queens Of The Stone Age - Song For The Dead (feat. Dave Grohl, Werchter 2002)

Great first novel in the series, loved the local to me feeling, really felt like I was there. Fun character with the usual array of traits and quirks adding to the story. Little bit far fetched but its a detective story, loads of twists and red herrings. Will look out for more from this Author. May 13, Margaret L.
