It's summertime in the Granite city: the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and people are dying! It starts with a prostitute, stripped naked and beaten to death down by the docks - 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 it's 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!

(The second book in the Logan McRae series)

Exo Apr 05, 2012

This is a good book, but only if you like the way Stuart MacBride tells stories. It's a little different from the usual story structure(story build up, difficulties, climax, etc), so avoid if you don't like stuff like that.
I like these books because they're improbable(think Criminal Minds, but slightly less twisted) but still realistically portrayed, and believable.
One of the best points is definitely characterization. MacBride really knows how to craft a realistic character, DI Steel and DI Insch are stellar examples of this, as is the main character, Logan McRae.
This is the third book by this author that I've read, and as usual, I enjoyed it. It isn't the best book EVER, but I find them to be worth the time. Give Cold Granite a chance. If you like that one, you'll like the rest of his books too.

Fast paced mystery. No serious plot holes even though it is incredulous- Worth reading if you enjoy the genre.
