9780007419456: Dying Light (Logan McRae)

The Number One bestselling detective series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride continues in this second crime thriller. It’s summertime in Scotland: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying…

She’s just the first. How many more will die?

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 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…

An unputdownable serial killer tale packed with mystery and suspense, as well as Stuart MacBride’s distinctive grittiness and dark humour.

Review:

‘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’ Independent

From 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. Only a few short months ago he was the golden boy of Grampian police. But following a botched raid that leaves a PC in a coma he's palmed off on a DI everyone knows is jinxed, waiting for the axe to fall with all the other rejects in the 'Screw-up Squad'.

Logan's not going to take it lying down. He's determined to escape DI Steel and her unconventional methods, and the best way to do that is to crack the case in double-quick time. But 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 his unputdownable second novel, confirming his status as the rising star of crime fiction.
