Driftnet is the first book in the Rhona Macleod series of books. Rhona is a forensic scientist that is called to the scene of a brutally mutilated teenage boy. This case holds a special place to her as the mutilated boy she is set to investigate bares a shocking resemblance to the 17-year old son she gave up for adoption at birth. This fills Rhona with guilt and she sets out to find this boy’s killer while also searching for the son she never knew, hoping they aren’t the same person.

Another popular book in the series is called Dark Flight. This is the fourth book in the series and sees Rhona investigating a truly dark crime. A mother and grandmother are murdered and an African talisman is found at the scene, the talisman is made from the bones of a child. The mother’s own child, Stephen, is missing and Rhona will need to decipher the meaning of the talisman in order to save the boy before he becomes part of another archaic ritual.
