‘DYING LIGHT is a wonderfully gripping and grim second outing for Logan McRae ... Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order’ Mark Billingham
Praise for Stuart MacBride:
‘Ferocious and funny, this is Tartan Noir at its best’ Val McDermid
‘MacBride is a damned fine writer – no one does dark and gritty like him’ Peter James
‘A terrific writer ... Brilliant ... bodies abound, blood flows freely and McRae is a delight’ The Times
‘Those who like their crime thrillers diamond hard need look no further than Stuart MacBride ... He has few equals in this area’ IndependentFrom the Back Cover:
It's summertime in the Granite city: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying...
It starts with Rosie Williams, a prostitute, stripped naked and beaten to death down by the docks - the heart of Aberdeen's red light district. For DS Logan McRae it's a bad start to another bad day.
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...
Stuart MacBride's characteristic grittiness, gallows humour and lively characterization are to the fore in this unputdownable serial killer tale.
'Another brilliant, riveting police procedural. I'm green with envy!' R D Wingfield, author of A Touch of Frost
'Stuart MacBride goes straight for the jugular' Glasgow Herald
