9780007377800: Shatter the Bones (Logan McRae, Book 7)

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...

About the Author:

Stuart MacBride was born in Dumbarton near Glasgow but grew up in Aberdeen. He is the top-ten bestelling author of several novels featuring DS Logan McRae. He has been shortlisted for the Theakstons’s Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award twice. Stuart won the 2007 CWA Dagger in the Library, awarded for a body of work, and was named Best Breakthrough Author at the 2008 ITV Crime Thriller Awards.

Stuart lives in north-east Scotland with his wife Fiona and cat Grendel.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* MacBride’s seventh Logan McRae novel may be the most harrowing yet—and that’s saying something. The Aberdeen, Scotland, police detective finds himself working two kidnapping cases that couldn’t be more different. In the first, a mother-daughter singing duo, made famous on the TV show Britain’s Next Big Star, is being held for ransom with the little girl’s toes offered up as proof of their abductors’ seriousness. In the other, a junkie has gone missing, presumably due to her boyfriend’s role in a drug deal. If Dark Blood (2011) suffered from slackness, then this installment finds MacBride roaring back to form. The crimes are breathtakingly awful, the pacing is breakneck, and the stakes are higher than ever. Indeed, when fallout from his actions lands close to home, McRae finds himself wracked by guilt far worse than his many physical wounds. Few writers can blend bantering humor with gut-wrenching violence without it feeling cheap. MacBride entertains while still offering food for thought about what we consume as entertainment: Why does the public weep for one missing mother, who may be a fame-hungry monster, while not caring about another, who may be a victim of circumstances? There’s little comfort in this bleak ending, but still: brilliant. Bloody. Brilliant. --Keir Graff
