I have finished the book and must now get the second one.
It is not my normal reading, but once started I just could not put it down.
Going to Mr Amazon now to get the follow on before I forget this half.
Downloaded for free on unlimited, but I will cancel unlimited after I have read it.

Told you so Jan - it is a "book well worth reading" as I origianlly titled this thread....

Glad you enjoyed the first book the second is at least as god IMO and does tie up a lot of loose ends from the first one which I did not even realise were loose ends....

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

I'm 30% through book 2 Dave, wish I didn´t have anything else to do except read.
I have just downloaded an Omnibus addition of `Haunted from within´ for free on Kindle.
Ian P.C. Irvine is very clever, lots of free books from him, but the rest of his free ones are part 1 to get you keen to read book 2 which you have to pay for (except if you do as I have done and get it free on the unlimited.

I bought that last week..... for £0.00 too....

half way through book 1 - harder work to read IMO and much less credible (as a biologist) but still worth reading and like you I have other things to do but.................

e.g. cutting up a fallen oak tree for logs to store for 2 years.....

It might be the only way I could actually work out the plot.

But it's £25.
I'm glad I didn't as it just stopped unbelievably.

Most odd and unbelievable ending to that series - and virtually impossible to follow anyway so I will not be seeking MacMafia 2 or similar...

But Shetland has started again and that looks good - what a shame it is only once a week rather than the Silent Witness scheme of two per week.....

The Shetland series at least has the added benefit of superb scenery.....

Having watched it again for the second time on a different television I still had trouble with the sound. Has anyone else experienced sound problems with this programme?

I'm hoping to watch McMafia again when we get home with subtitles on to see if I can understand it better.
Most films and deep plots I need subtitles to catch the innuendos and mutterings.
