When he receives a mysterious message from his brother, Murray, indicating he might have been killed, Hunter must head up to the Scottish Highlands, desperate to pick up his brother’s trail in the Black Isle, the mysterious stretch just north of Inverness.

    I liked the insight this book gave to Hunter's background. I'm not convinced of how realistic some of it is, but it was a very enjoyable read to distract me from world events.

    Another good Scottish police novel, with Craig Hunter as the main character but featuring many of the characters from the Cullen series as well. Hunter is on a search for his missing brother

    Brilliant I read all the Fenchurch books, then a few months later I came across the first Vicky Dodds book on my kindle. Since then I've devoured that series, the Cullen series and the Cullen and Bain books as well as these (I know that's not really the correct order)... what am I going to read now?!?!

    Captivating I am a fan of Di Fenchurch mainly because I know his patch, but the exploits of the Scottish force is really entertaining. Thank you Ed, love the books, have yet to try the supernatural!!!!

    I enjoyed this book, but maybe not as much as some of the other books by Ed James. Also can anyone tell me what the hell is Violets train trip? 😂

    3.5 stars. Not as much DS Jain in this book so it gets a lower grade. This book is after the Scott Cullen #8 Heroes and Villains.

    It was an Ed James so it was a good book. I like Craig Hunter but somehow I enjoy Cullen and Fenchurch more. This book does a good job of tying in with the other series with other characters integrated legitimately according to crime and rank. It is interesting to see these characters interact with new personnel. And as for Ed James saying he won’t write any more of these series until sales reach a certain level - what do you want?

All your fans, like me, have everyone of your books already and potential new readers won’t want to start a series that’s not going to continue. And you promised us another Vicki Dodd! I’m reading the new book you are writing instead that is set in America and I gotta say - stick to what you know. I was on page 18 and now I’m doing this instead. I hope it picks up as it goes along.

    Hunter is back We are back with Hunter for this book and this time his brother is missing. With the help(?!) of his estranged father Hunter goes looking for him and with each discovery it is not looking good..... What I love about all of Ed's books are the characters and in this book we are treated to many familiar faces (especially Cullen). I enjoy all of Ed's series - Cullen, Hunter, Fenchurch and Dodds and I'm looking forward to his new series and character Max Carter.

    Welcome back, Craig Hunter!! It was great to see Hunters return in such fun fashion. We got introduced to his Dad, a real character. All his old friends came along for a really great ride. I can't wait to see DC Hunter again or maybe it will be DS Hunter by then. It was a suspense-filled trip through Northern Scotland. The place of my Grandparent's birth, hopefully someday I'll get there, my daughter already has and says it is beautiful. Thank You, Ed James, keep the books coming. Welcome back, Craig Hunter!!

    The Black Isle featuring Detective Constable Craig Hunter is a great read. Busy author Ed James has at least four, if not five Scottish police series on the go. I am amazed he can produce such entertaining stories for so many characters. In the Black Isle, Craig Hunter's estranged and very eccentric father gets involved in the search for his missing younger son, Murray. It makes for a messy investigation for the detective. Enjoy!

    Thrills galore! This story felt quite different from the two previous Craig Hunter books. Of course, the setting was more dramatic than Edinburgh. The wild North of Scotland is a character all of it's own. Having a family member involved also softened the usual hardness of Ed James' stories. Still gritty though! Thrills galore!

    This is a gripping and face-paced story which had a different feel to it. The story of Hunter’s missing brother and the hunt for him by Hunter and his father - trying to work through their fractured relationship at the same time, and stumbling into more than they had bargained for. Definitely worth reading.

    Fascinating A slightly different twist to the other Hunter and Cullen books but still fast paced and very enjoyable. Further insight into the characters of Hunter, Cullen and Jain. Give me more!

    Pact and readable Lots of familiar faces in an unfamiliar setting. The finale is a little over the top - but this is fiction writing after all. As always the large amount of actual "speech" is a strong feature, and the plot does rattle along as usual. Pact and readable Lots of familiar faces in an unfamiliar setting.

    Good After a botched operation DC Hunter and DS Jain get transferred to another branch one which they thought they had left for good. The story starts with DC Hunter’s brother going missing. That’s when it gets exiting and a page turner
