Russel McLean's Scottish private investigator, A J. McNee has been liken to and fit the mold of several of those tough-guy PI types we've come to accept and acknowledge as fighting for justice and the under represented, no matter the cost. This protagonist while operating within the law, yet has ties and associations on the fringe of those he typically pursuits to incarcerate. In this briefly but well written tale McNee solves a complex case involving child abuse and murder while transitioning in time periods and associating with criminals whom he despises and seeks to bring to justice.
