Overview

The Number One bestseller from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. The seventh DS Logan McRae thriller is a gripping page-turner in which fame and fortune crash head-on with crime and punishment.

No suspects. No clues. No rest for the wicked.

'You will raise money for the safe return of Alison and Jenny McGregor. If you raise enough money within fourteen days they will be released. If not, Jenny will be killed.'

Alison and Jenny McGregor – Aberdeen's own mother-daughter singing sensation – are through to the semi-finals of TV smash-hit Britain's Next Big Star. They're in all the gossip magazines, they've got millions of YouTube hits, everyone loves them.

But their reality-TV dream has turned into a real-life nightmare. The ransom demand appears in all the papers, on the TV, and the internet, telling the nation to dig deep if they want to keep Alison and Jenny alive.

The media want action; the public displays of grief and anger are reaching fever-pitch. Time is running out, but DS Logan McRae and his colleagues have nothing to go on: the kidnappers haven't left a single piece of forensic evidence. The investigation is going nowhere.

It looks as if the price of fame just got a lot higher…

    Fun series!

    I have enjoyed the Logan McRae series very much. Great characters and plenty of plot twists to keep you guessing. I do suggest reading the books in order because the stories reference past events.

    I am about to start book #8 and I can't help but wonder if people in Scotland really eat as many bacon butties and chocolate biscuits, etc, as they do in the books?! ;-)

    Divine

    Certainly this series is very violent but it is used to keep the story going forward. I love the characters especially Logan McRae and Roberta Steel. McBride has made his cast of characters into living beings whom you cannot help but feel. I just hope the author loves to write as much as I love to read.

    Logan finally make Detective Inspector

    Detective Sargent McRae finally is promoted to Inspector, in this ongoing saga. This action packed mystery is well worth reading. There is kidnapping, house fire, physical maiming, & a Reality TV Musical Competition in this exciting & entertaining story.

    Getting Stupid

    It seems as though as Logan McRae gets along in this series, instead of becoming a better ans smarter cop, he is getting stupid. I was a little disappointed with Number 6 and Number 7 as well in this series. Number 8 is not an ebook yet, let's hope he turns around.

    Honestly, this book so far (200 pages in) has been almost a total disappointment. Yes. McRae has kind of straightened himself out but why on Earth did he get a tattoo? His Goth "girlfriend" needs to go: she's uninteresting and lends nothing to any part of the story. All those useless interviews with pedophiles can be skipped: they give one the impression they were only there as fillers for pages. I skipped those entirely and missed nothing. Those awful interludes about what the kidnappers are doing is so sickening I skipped over those parts too and have missed nothing. Seems to me the author is getting disenchanted with his hero and I am getting fed up with the "fluff". I am sorely disappointed. Books 1, 2, &3 were good but after that it all went downhill. VERY disappointing!.

    Not my favorite but still good

    Didn't care for the ending. About 395 pages. Graphic violence, good storyline and not predictable. Really wish he'd done more loose tie wrapping up at the end.
