An utterly unputdownable gritty detective mystery thriller
A body in a bin. Two cops at each other's throats.
Acting DI Scott Cullen faces his worst fear. Managing DS Brian Bain, his old boss and notorious loose cannon.
But when Cullen is called through to Glasgow to investigate a murder, Bain is back on his home turf.
A body found in an industrial bin, soaked in bleach and naked except for an adult nappy.
Amid an ongoing investigation into similar crimes, but stopping short of murder, can Cullen rise above Bain's behaviour and solve the crime?
City of the Dead continues the Cullen story after the shocking events of Heroes & Villains.

“This is truly Ed James’ best novel to date. Having to work with Bain tries Cullen’s patience since their history was less than friendly. The murders are unique – nappies and rape?! You will be captivated from the very beginning of this book.” – Amazon Reviewer
“At long last, Cullen is back in City of the Dead. A diaper wearing man’s body is found in a Glaswegian dumpster, and Acting DI Cullen is sent from Edinburgh to investigate. Lucky for us, he takes DS Bain with him to try to crack the case.This a great, fast paced novella, with nary a subplot to distract us. We get a bunch of old favorites to join the fun: Crystal Methven, Elvis, and Craig Hunter (star of the Hunter series). The best part is getting a first person glimpse into the mind of Brian Bain, and seeing Cullen’s world through his eyes. City of the Dead is both an excellent continuation of the Cullen series, and what looks to be a promising start to a Cullen and Bain series. Highest of recommendations.” – Amazon Reviewer
“The story is full of action, with realistic police procedures, and very straightforward without much deviation from solving the crime. I really enjoyed Scott Cullen and Bryan Bain as they tried to cooperate and work with each other after their switch in supervisory positions. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more in this series. I received an Advance Reader Copy and chose to provide this review.” – Amazon Reviewer
