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?! ;-)

This has been a real fun series to read.

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.

Another winner that'll keep you turning pages until the end and then searching for the next book in the series.

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.

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!.

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.

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.
