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 debut thriller by a writer with a wonderfully observant eye and a characteristically Scottish sense of gallows humour.

    " Good enough for me to get the second one. I am enjoying the Scottish dialect and the Aberdeen location. "

    " A supremely grim story, but so supremely well written that I couldn't stop turning each page. I had a hard time going to sleep at night as I wanted to keep reading this on my Nook. It seemed truer to how police work is done, false leads followed leading nowhere, cruel perpetrators, bad victims as well as sad. Not for the faint of heart, this one. "

    " Great crime novel, received free on my nook. Children are being murdered in Aberdeen, and it's up to Detective Logan to fiind the killer. I love the descriptions the au.thor uses to describe the crime scenes and the city. He really has a knack for placing youthere amongst the chaos. "

    " not as good as i was hoping. the whole book seemed to go quite slow. luckily it saved itself in the end. i will certainly read the next ones in the ds mcrae series as i love the characters and stuart mcbride's style of writing however i hope they improve "
