I cannot get enough of this series. Love it.

Another great read. A wee bit much on the local colloquialisms at times which slows the reading down if you're not familiar, but a good story just the same.

I have read all of these books and they are great!! Keeps you wanting more and you don't know who did it until the end.

the clues are always there in the Logan McRae mysteries...and the plot leading up to the conclusion keeps me guessing until the last few chapters...i enjoy the vivid depictions of Scottish lifestyles through character interactions and descriptions of the North Scottish environment. these can be read on their own or go back and start with #1 and read them through to the end...and then wait patiently for #8!

If you are a fan of Stuart MacBride, and the characters he chronicles in his ongoing series about the Aberdeen police, this book will most likely appeal to you, as well. Most of your favorites are back, although some take a distinct step into the background in this one. If you are not yet a fan, or are relatively new to the series – DO NOT start out with this one. MacBride makes no attempt to introduce his characters; he apparently figures that the reader already knows who these people are and what makes them tick from his prior novels. Unfortunately, he therefore gives little weight to those who are NOT familiar with them, or who need a little (or a lot of) reminder as to who they are. Even without that background, this book comes in around 500 pages. In my opinion (admittedly a big fan of the author’s), it is a good investment of time for those who have a solid background in the Aberdeen Police Department as MacBride has painted them in the past. As usual, MacBride has several plot threads going on at once, just as an actual police department would have multiple cases running coincidentally. However, also as usual, MacBride finds ways to show a connection – sometimes tight, sometimes tangentially – between these cases. Go ahead and buy this book, BUT put it aside if you have not yet read Cold Granite, or Flesh House, or (especially) the prior book, Blind Eye – come back to this one after you’ve completed his earlier 5 books. RATING: 4 stars.

I have read 6 of Stuart Macbride's (Logan McRae) books in the series and can't wait to read the next one. I sort of stumbled on the first one when looking for something different and was hooked. He writes so well and makes you feel you're right in the story. His characters are so real and you become so involved in their lives that you want to find out more. He has some surprise endings and I've enjoyed every single book.

I like this series. A bit of fun, a bit of wackiness, and the other end of the spectrum, serious crime and detective work.

I've read four or five of the Logan McRae series. All good.

This book was a bit harder to follow than some of his other books but still very interesting.
