In the pale grey light of a chilly February, Aberdeen is not at its best. There's a rapist prowling the city's cold granite streets, leaving a string of tortured women behind. But while DS Logan McRae's girlfriend is out acting as bait, he's dealing with the blood-drenched body of an unidentified male, dumped outside Accident and Emergency.

When a stash of explicit films turn up, all featuring the victim, it looks as if someone in the local bondage community has developed a taste for violent death, and Logan gets dragged into the twilight world of pornographers, sex-shops, and S&M. To make matters worse, when they finally arrest the Granite City Rapist, Grampian Police are forced by the courts to let him go: Aberdeen Football Club's star striker has an alibi for every attack.

Could they really have got it so badly wrong? Logan thinks so, but the trick will be getting anyone to listen before the real rapist strikes again. Especially as his girlfriend, PC Jackie 'Ball Breaker' Watson, is convinced the footballer is guilty, and she's hell-bent on a conviction at any cost.

    " My first MacBride, so what did I think about this award-winning writer, well I'm still not sure. The story was gripping and the characters fell into place eventually, it just took me quite a while to get into them. The book was long, but most of the narrative is given over to heavily done descriptions of scenery, which I don't know were really needed - sometimes they lost the drive and speed of the plot. Now I am aware of the characters I'd like to read Flesh House, have another go as it were, and then I can see how I feel. "

    " Good if you wanted to know how to use 'bollocks' in a sentence. "
