    1. With so many characters to keep track of this one really didn't work for me at all. I just could not get my head around the fact that a group of families took their children away on holiday every year for the summer solstice, with one mother even being a teacher - when school holidays, even in Scotland, would not have started then. Thanks to the publisher via Netgalley for the review copy.


    2. I read and enjoyed The Night Hunter which was the last in the Anderson & Costello series, but as it didn’t really feature the two detectives at length I was unsure about this duo and had the usual question, is it possible to enjoy part way through the series? The answer is yes, this read perfectly well as a standalone and I didn’t really feel that I had missed anything pertinent to the complex mystery that unfolded.In short there at the time of the solstice an elderly woman burnt in her [...]


    3. An old lady burned to death in her home and a man's body - tortured before he was killed - is found in a field. This is the violent start to this totally engrossing story, These apparently unconnected deaths seem to have a common factor - a Tarot card is found with each one. When the body in the field is identified as a man who has been wanted by the police for nearly a year for two child murders the police come in for plenty of scorn from the media. Vigilantes seem to have succeeded where they [...]


    4. I love Caro Ramsay's Anderson and Costello series and I was really looking forward to reading Tears of Angels, number 6 in the series.Location description was spot on and quite magical, at times I could actually feel myself on the banks of the loch and smelling the scent of the countryside.Tears of Angels has all the right ingredients, murder, deceit and fear but something just didn't fit as well with me this time around. I struggled to connect with the characters and felt as though there were t [...]


    5. The Tears of Angels by Caro Ramsay 4 StarsAn engrossing read from the start elderly woman’s burnt body and a man’s body found tortured in a nearby field. A tarot card linking the two deaths.This gory book is set in Glasgow and is investigated by Anderson and Costello. They discover horrific murders and try to find who is responsible for these.You do have to concentrate as it flits from one time to another, but it is definitely worth your undying commitment to read onHighly recommended.Elphab [...]



    6. A very bizarre story with lots of strange twists & turns. Read this on my vacation. Why am I surrounding myself with murder & mayhem on vacation??


    7. Love how there are layers of of confusion that slowly come together in solving the cases . Looking forward to reading another one in the series


    8. First, if you haven't read this author before, no worries. Despite the large returning cast, this can be enjoyed as a stand alone. And if you're a fan of gritty police procedurals you want to pick this up. Just set aside some time for the nap you'll need after you finish. Ms. Ramsay takes us on quite a ride. DCI Colin Anderson has reconciled with his wife & is back home. But he's about to have a really bad day. A little old lady was burned in her bed. Then he gets called to a farm where a yo [...]


    9. How has this series got to number 6 without me discovering it!? I am actually quite ashamed of myself being as this is exactly my go to genre of book. Obviously, after that little admission above, I read this as a stand-alone but, as the story is self-contained, I don't believe that this impeded any on my overall reading experience. There were, of course, the odd references to previous cases but these weren't too intrusive and the lack of prior knowledge of these didn't affect me at all.The case [...]


    10. More 3.5 than 3I've read and enjoyed the first two books in the series but have somehow got out of sync and now find myself reading number 6. Given the time lapse between reading the previous titles and starting this I'll admit my memory was pretty vague, which serves to confirm that this can be read as a standalone. The book certainly has a dramatic start with a couple of gruesome murders, an elderly lady burned to death and the discovery of an ingeniously dismembered male body found in a field [...]


    11. Past crimes cause new murder in this tense and twisting psychological thriller. A few days before the summer solstice a 92-year-old woman is found burned to death in her home. On the same day, a man's mutilated corpse is discovered in a field, his arms ripped from their sockets, a Tarot card depicting The Fool inserted in his mouth. When the victim is identified as someone for whom the police have been looking for almost a year, detectives Anderson and Costello find themselves caught up in a cas [...]


    12. Disclaimer: This book was provided to me as an advanced readers copy by the publisher, Severn House through NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review. An elderly woman is found burned to death in her house. In a nearby field, a corpse is discovered with his arms missing and a tarot card in his mouth. The two crimes seem independent, but are they? Later, the man is identified as a person involved in the murders of three children, police have been after for a year. Or is it? And how are they all [...]


    13. It has always fascinated me as to why people go without fail to the same holiday location year after year, maybe this book will provide some answers as this police murder investigation thriller unfolds on the banks of beautiful Loch Lomond, normally any time I have visited it is either drowning in rain or suffocating in midge. An unattached hand in the middle of a field with some horses starts of Anderson and Costello's investigation which quickly linked to some unresolved child deaths at a holi [...]


    14. This is my first novel by the writer and it's the sixth of a series. We were introduced to quite a few characters in the early pages and because I had not read the earlier novels, this made remembering who was who a little more difficult that it could have been.There are two threads to this story, the deaths of three children in recent history/some gruesome activities in the present time, and a Canadian child investigating her family background in the area.I admit to being a bit confused by the [...]


    15. So I finally got around to reading thisr me this was a strange Anderson & Costello tale, mainly because neither of them really had much of a voice. Yes they were involved in the investigations, but they really were very much like extras, occasionally making an entrance but not really contributing muchdisappointing particularly on Costello's part as I feel she has such a strong personality that really didn't shine this time.d Anderson, well he just annoyed med as for the actual storyline, it [...]


    16. Was I distracted when I read this? It seemed very disjointed in the early and middle parts. I had trouble keeping track of all the characters and found myself thinking ' who is this Ruth again?' Naturally it all got pulled together towards the end but by then I was just reading to see what happened rather than because I cared about any of the characters. Even those supposedly on the same side seemed to be a bit "off". So what might have been a good (somewhat far-fetched) story became a sort of m [...]


    17. Two years ago two boys were murdered on an island in Loch Lomond. A third boy made it back to shore, hysterically telling of their murder by a man who was trusted by all on the campground. These are not the first children to die violently in this place and at this time of year. Now the suspect has been found ripped apart in a field.That is the background to this excellent police procedural story. I have never read any Anderson and Costello books. This did not spoil my enjoyment of the story alth [...]


    18. I listened to this, my first book by Caro Ramsay, on CD in the car. I enjoyed it up to a point - I particularly liked the setting in Glasgow/loch Lomond as I know the area. I also liked the Glasgow "patter" which was true to life. The story itself was not the best I've encountered - I found it a little difficult keeping track of the characters ( possibly my fault as I didn't have continuity with the story) and I found it a bit slow to develop. However, on the whole, it was a good read and will t [...]


    19. I have to admit, I really struggled with this book & nearly gave up. This is the first in series that I have read, so did not know the characters, and there are so many. I got confused who was male & female & all names were primarily surnames, what departments they worked for, and whether they were good or bad. I carried on & about 2/3rds in it really picked up the pace & the story was really interesting, but, I did work out the children's who-dunnit virtually as soon as they [...]


    20. The book skipped from character to character in a way that was somewhat hard to follow. I enjoyed the Loch Lomond location and the Scottish characters but thought the murder mystery a little absurd. The first part of the book as the mystery was developing was looking fine but last part of the book was almost unintelligible. Too many unlikely murders and too much poorly contrived climax building.


    21. I haven't read many Caro Ramsey novels but thoroughly enjoyed this one. I did work out some of the plot in advance but the authors writing keeps you hooked .First book for a long while that I read in a day.


    22. I was happy to see that this book focused primarily on the police team and that the familiar characters were back and featured. While I thought that overall this was an interesting book there were aspects that weren't very realistic and the conclusion was somewhat confusing.


    23. Usually I like this series but I found this one slow going and the characters irritating. It became interesting about 50 pages from the end.




    24. Another great book by Caro, love these two cops! Just too many characters this time and got a bit confused!
