Short novel starring Logan McRae and Roberta Steel.

One thing that Stuart MacBride does very well is tying up loose ends with regards to the mysteries and leave you hanging with the characters (all of them!), wondering what will happen next. Looking forward to the next one! ( )

"The Espace pulled forward up the ramp, apparently unaware that they had nearly had an extra three passengers in the back seat, complete with patrol car."

I read this in two sittings (over two days).

Great fiction it's not, but:

- I've never read any of the others in the series, and had no trouble with the characters or any pre-events (there's one bit that seems a little out of character so now I want to read the earlier books to make sense of it!)

- It was definitely gripping and I plowed through the pages

- It's got a very strong sense of setting in Aberdeen - a great mix of accents, local landmarks, the mix of suburbia and a seedier underbelly

- Both McRae and Steel are well-developed characters (Steel felt somewhat caricatured) and minor characters are left to be just that.

Good fun. ( )
