Stuart MacBride Books Overview
The debut thriller from a bright new Scottish talent set to rival Ian Rankin. It’s DS Logan McRae’s first day back on the job after a year off on the sick, and it couldn’t get much worse. Four year old David Reid’s body is discovered in a ditch, strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. There’s a killer stalking the Granite City and the local media are baying for blood. If that wasn’t enough, Logan also has to contend with a new boss, DI Insch, who doesn’t suffer fools gladly and thinks everyone’s a fool, and his own ex girlfriend, the beautiful but chilly Isobel MacAlister, who also happens to be the chief pathologist. The only good news is WPC ‘Ball Breaker’ Watson, Logan’s new guardian angel. The dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. More are going to die. If Logan isn’t careful, he’s going to end up joining them. Set in Aberdeen, where the rainy season lasts all year, criminal gangs vie for supremacy on the streets and the oil industry brings an influx of wealth and vice, this is a gritty, powerful and page turning debut thriller by a writer with a wonderfully observant eye and a characteristically Scottish sense of gallows humour.
With this follow up to COLD GRANITE, deemed an impressive debut by Publishers Weekly, Stuart MacBride proves himself to be a rising star of crime fiction and this time, the action is more explosive than ever
A FALL FROM GRACE
On the coast of Scotland, in the Granite City of Aberdeen, Detective Sergeant Logan MacRae is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Bumped to the homicide department’s Screw up Squad after a sting operation gone wrong, Logan will do anything to prove that he doesn t belong there even if it means working overtime on two baffling cases: a fatal act of arson in a squatter s apartment and the murder of a prostitute in the city s notorious red light district.
A DEADLY UPRISING
But when it rains in Aberdeen, it pours and soon Logan is up to his neck in danger. Turns out the two cases might have something dangerously in common. Now, enlisting the help of his former D.I., his forensic pathologist ex girlfriend, and his fellow no hopers on the squad, Logan is charged not only with solving a series of vicious crimes but saving his own life and reputation in the process.
Bloodshot / Broken Skin
Detective Sergeant Logan McRae’s only chance of getting out from under Detective Inspectors Steel and Insch is to get noticed. Not that any of his cases are the type that he wants to get noticed for.
For starters, someone dumped a dying man at the hospital, and the team can t ID him or the person who dumped him. Even worse, McRae is also after a knife wielding eight year old who is stirring up bad press for the department that does little for their case against Robert Macintyre, Aberdeen s beloved star soccer player. They re convinced he s a rapist, but they can t hold him long enough to prove it. Catching these perps is thankless work, and McRae s chances of getting rewarded are as bad as Aberdeen s without their leading goal scorer.
With his third masterful installment in a series that combines suspense with a dark and distinctly Scottish wit, award winning author Stuart MacBride is setting a blistering standard for the next generation of crime writers.
Killers have terrorized Aberdeen in the past Detective Sergeant Logan McRae has the scars to prove it but when body parts show up in a cargo container at the harbor they kick off Scotland’s largest manhunt in twenty years. Last time they were searching for Kenneth Wiseman, a brutal killer who terrified the country, who was eventually caught only to be acquitted eleven years later on a technicality. Now he s gone missing, people are dying, and the police are certain he s at work again.
As the violence escalates, DS McRae is forced to work with the senior officers assigned to the original case who have returned to Aberdeen to finish what they started. With decades of secrets and lies coming to light, the only thing that s certain is that the city will never be the same again.
Once again, award winning author Stuart MacBride fuses his signature dry wit with a dark and twisting plot to tell his most searing and accomplished story yet.
