I could not wait for the US edition to come out, so I sent to England for this book and was, once again, not in the least disappointed. What other mystery makes you laugh out loud one page, and groan from a graphic portrayal of a gruesome attack and murders in the next??? The characters are so well drawn, the writing is crisp and compelling and I cannot wait for the next book. Bring on more Laz!

Although Aberdeen, Scotland Detective Sergeant. Logan McRae is still healing from the brutal Flesh House case he investigates nasty hate crime assaults on Polish immigrants; even the cops are horrified with what has happened to the eyes of the victims. DCI Finnie believes the prime suspect Gilchrist is a malcontent who loathes the influx of foreigners from East Europe for taking the jobs away from locals. However, Logan wonders if something else is the motive beyond the attacks when even a crime boss is beaten. Instead Logan considers a mob war between Scottish mobsters and Polish gangsters while Finnie tells him to stop thinking as that is not standard operating procedure for a DS. Meanwhile, McRae feels a double whammy when Finnie punishes him by sticking him with loud mouth Detective Inspector Roberta Steele to keep witness Rory Simpson, a pedophile, safe from an angry female stalker. This is a strong Scottish police procedural that is owned by Logan but contains a deep support ensemble especially the cops. The investigation is cleverly devised so that Logan is once again an outsider in trouble with his superiors especially pompous Finnie. Fans will enjoy his latest case as he works around the bureaucrats to solve the hate crimes. His back case load is also worth reading (see BLOODSHOT, DYING LIGHT and COLD GRANITE). Harriet Klausner

Almost done with this book - really like the Logan McRae series. Like the characters. The only things that turned my rating from a 5 to a 3 is that I miss DI Insch, don't connect at all with DI Finnie and they have taken DI Steele and changed her from funny to sort of annoying. Logan's new love interest in this book doesn't work well either. The story line is good and the fact that I am about 80% through it and have no clue how this is going to turn out.... Well, that is how I judge how good a story is!

I am his biggest fan. His books are a bit gruesome and not for the faint of heart. And LOL you feel like you are learning a new language.

I like Logan McRae because he's just a normal, everyday guy with ups and lots of downs. He's usually the hero but no one seems to notice. DI Steele is a hoot.

Stuart MacBride continues to make Logan interesting, surprising, and human. The previous action from other stories are never forgotten. And, DI Steel's hair, as always, has a few new and inventive descriptions. I will continue buying the books of the Logan McRae series. Hopefully there will be many, many more.

Another of Stuart MacBride's novels you are drawn into even though you can't imagine someone actually doing the things described.

I am totally hooked on this series. Fast paced, a terrific cast of characters and plots that keep you guessing. What's not to love? The Scotland setting might put some people off but I thoroughly enjoy it.

If ur on the case with Logan don't miss these cases. How he gets himself in and out of trouble make me want to be his side kick and its almost like u r. I'm not sure how he put up with the DI McPherson without chocking the life out of them alone with Steele don't miss it you will be sorry!
