Synopsis

Stuart MacBride’s Number One bestselling crime series opens with this award-winning debut. DS Logan McRae and the police in Aberdeen hunt a child killer who stalks the frozen streets. Winter in Aberdeen: murder, mayhem and terrible weather… It’s DS Logan McRae’s first day back on the job after a year off on the sick, and it couldn’t get much worse. Three-year-old David Reid’s body is discovered in a ditch, strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. And he’s only the first. There’s a serial killer stalking the Granite City and the local media are baying for blood. Soon the dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. More are going to die. And if Logan isn’t careful, he could end up joining them…

This is an incredible read. Having read many other crime novels this is the grittiest yet. Full of amazing characters who are strong yet weak in their own ways. A great book to start this series of books about policing in Aberdeen. A must read for all lovers of crime writing.

Stuart McBride books are gutsy with quite an amazing story plot. I read a later book in the series about DS Logan McRae and just had to go back to the beginning of the series and have since read all that are in print. Highly recommend if someone wants a fast paced mystery with clever deductive sleuthing. A great protagonist with a fine supporting cast. Cannot wait for the next one to come out, I am truly hooked.

This was the first book I read of Stuart MacBride's and I was so impressed that I have since read all the others. He draws you in to story which makes it hard to put down as you want to see what is going to happen next. Stuart paints a very clear picture of the settings and people and it seems so real.

From the outset, this is a relentless crime debut that grabs you the throat and never lets up, you meet the best cast of characters ever assembled in a crime series. Read this before any other Stuart MacBride book , because the characters like Logan McRae,DI Insch, DI Steel, all grow as one throughout ever books in the ongoing series.Best crime series I've read .Miss this series at your peril

I started with this book and have been hooked on all of his books since. Everything from plot to characters to scenery is well written. If you enjoy a good crime novel with some dark Scottish scenery woven into it - this is the book for you.

This was an excellent read, although I have read Logan McRae books out of sequence I just had to go the first book to find out more about the main character.
