Normally not into supernatural stories, so for me the Inspector McLean stories are an exception. Although there are supernatural aspects to the plot, they are not overwhelming the story. I was hooked since the first book came out and am already looking forward to the next one. This is partially due to Ian Hanmore superb reading. Prayer for the Dead is as suspenseful as its predecessors; I only missed a few characters from the earlier books. I do hope they will return in future stories, for I’ve gotten attached to them.
