It starts with a prostitute, stripped naked and beaten to death down by the docks, in the heart of Aberdeen's red light district. For DS Logan MacRae it's a bad start to another bad day. Only a few short months ago, he was the golden boy of Grampian police. But one botched raid later, he's palmed off on a DI everyone knows is a jinx, waiting for the axe to fall with all the other rejects in the Screw-up Squad.

Logan's not going to take it lying down. He's determined to escape DI Steel and her unconventional methods, and the best way to do that is to crack the case in double-quick time. But Rosie Williams won't be the only one making an unscheduled trip to the morgue. Across the city six people are burning to death in a petrol-soaked squat, the doors and windows screwed shut from the outside. And despite Logan's best efforts, it's not long before another prostitute turns up on the slab.

Stuart MacBride's characteristic grittiness, gallows humour and lively characterisation are on full display here, confirming his status as the rising star of crime fiction.

    " I listened to this via narrated version on Cd's in the car. Once I got the hang of the scottish accent I loved it! Very gripping. I'll be tempted to read some more Macbride books. "

    " Disposable Scottish crime fiction. Painfully cliched cop protagonist. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carole | 1/1/2014

    " Loved it and like Cold Granite (prev book in series), couldn't put it down. Highly recommend !! "

    " Good but gruesome. Interesting characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth Moffat | 12/26/2013

    " The second in the Logan McRae series and a great thriller from MacBride. There are a couple of plots going on in this novel, which make it more exciting to read. I will definitely be checking out the rest in this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Robb | 12/21/2013

    " halfway through and dropped. police procedural where all they do is state the obvious and curse under their breath. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 12/20/2013

    " Superb writing and great characters, some loathsome, some lovable, but all very entertaining. Oh, and the whole murder-mystery bit is excellent too, keeps you guessing. Will be requesting some more Macbride from the library! "

    " Another great Logan read but don't think I'll read two on the bounce again - enjoyable but I will go back fresh to the third after a good dose of chick lit :o) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 11/22/2013

    " This author just gets better. One to read for sure "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pete Action | 11/20/2013

    " Was a really good detective story with a flawed copper. Like the descriptions of Scotland life in the tough towns. Some great chracters too - not all clean cut by any means. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ailsa | 7/8/2013

    " Just as good as the last one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 5/8/2013

    " My favourite of the series featuring DS Logan McRae. Gritty crime story with a huge dash of black humour - fab bath read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 4/21/2013

    " 2nd entry in a solid detective series set in Aberdeen, Scotland. Not for the squeamish. If you can take the visuals of Bones and the psychos of Criminal Minds, you'll be ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Derk | 1/17/2013

    " This is the second book by MacBride and the second one I've read. I think this one was even better than the first and I thought that one was excellent. A solid police and bad guys story with interesting twists along the way. Not much mystery, but then they may not write good mysteries anymore. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 3/18/2012

    " this book is in typical stuart macbride fashion , it goes straight for the jugular from the first page , it has a really good storyline which will captivate you and has dark humour runnign through it too . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 1/29/2012

    " Graphic but for someone who spends quite a bit of time in Aberdeen it has now made some areas of the city far more scary than ever before!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corinna | 12/30/2011

    " If you like police procedurals & crime dramas, check out this series. Good stuff. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/18/2011

    " My 2nd by this author in sucession. I can still see Ken Stott in the lead role. Still as gory.
    Time for something different, I think. "

    " Another page turner, as grisly as the first. I liked the multiple investigations. I didn't like some of the characterizations as much. "
