Free on Amazon - A Kind of Dying by Frederic Lindsay
'Men vanish all the time; often because that's what they've chosen to do. So when he's sent to investigate a disappearance, Inspector Jim Meldrum begins to ask himself why the Chief Constable and so many of his colleagues are taking an interest in what appears to be a routine investigation. Wealthy John Bellman lived a quiet life out of the public eye. What makes his disappearance so important?
An unexpected call takes Meldrum to Oslo where a Norwegian policeman appears to have evidence that Bellman was connected to one of the most dangerous neo-Nazi groups to emerge since the fall of the Berlin wall.
In London, Bellman's daughter demands her own price of Meldrum to help in the search. From there, Meldrum's dogged pursuit of the truth will take him deep into a New England forest where the elements of Bellman's past come into violent collision. For the final unravelling, however, he has to look elsewhere. If he is to uncover the roots of a spreading evil Jim Meldrum must come home. To Edinburgh.'
