Description

Inspector Logan McRae is back at work after a year off on the sick and looking forward to an easy case to ease him back into the daily grind. It's a big book - just about 450 pages if you're reading it and just shy of fourteen hours if you're listening - and Stuart MacBride allows himself full rein. However, my favourite of all was the ever-cheery, ever-helpful, high-as-a-kite (on caffeine) Tufty: “like a kicked dachshund.

Media interest in the Professor is high, the pressure from their superior officers unrelenting as they want results - preferably yesterday! I really enjoyed reading this and have no hesitation in highly recommending it to anyone who enjoys crime thrillers. I missed that particular way Stuart MacBride has of combining the darkest of crimes with a healthy dose of chuckles, even sometimes at the most inappropriate moments. Well ok, just that if you are looking for quality writing, brilliant observation and genuinely addictive plots within your crime fiction, this series and this author should be high up on your reading list. As with his previous books I have read we get the inappropriate unpc humour, bad language, swearing and misbehavior from some of the characters we know and love from the series.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. Personally I could swing for Tufty, who annoys the hell out of me, but I've got to admit that I laughed a lot as I read and listened. Although this one is a bit more political than I would have liked, it was an addictive story filled with what Stuart MacBride does best. ABOUT THIS BOOK: Inspector Logan McRae was looking forward to a nice simple case – something to ease him back into work after a year off on the sick. Putting credibility of the basic premise to the side, the plotting in this also felt stronger to me than the last couple I’d read.

I rarely comment on dialogue included in a story, but MacBride does a superb job of moving the narrative forward in a very natural way. If you're offended by coarse language, anti-English statements and silliness in public office it's probably not the book for you. Sometimes those strong threads of brutality and banter can make it easy to overlook that he's also got a great touch for character and character relationships in his storytelling, and bringing the setting and some relevant social issues to life. So everything as you'd expect it to be in a Logan McRae book, and absolutely nothing to dent favourite reading status. The epilogue (which deals with Tufty’s film debut) was pointless and had minimal connection to the main story.

We flip between the police investigation, Logan dealing with being back on the job and his lasting effects from his injuries and the bad guy.
