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. If Logan isn't careful, he's going to end up joining them.
Set in Aberdeen, where the rainy season lasts all year, criminal gangs vie for supremacy on the streets, and the oil industry brings an influx of wealth and vice, this is a gritty, powerful debut thriller by a writer with a wonderfully observant eye and a characteristically Scottish sense of gallows humour.

Grisly gruesome ghastly kidnappings & murders in The Granite City, of Aberdeen Scotland. Lots of twist and turns. The Narration is superb! You won’t put this one down until the spine tingling end!
More! More! More!
Avid reader and audiobook listener; I love paranormal lit, mysteries, historical fiction, romance, Brit-crime novels and thrillers.
I love, love, love Stuart MacBride. This book is the first in the Logan MacRae series and, since I found it, I am now hooked! MacBride is a terrifically entertaining author; one of the best I have read. Until I found him, Nelson Demille was my favorite author in this genre. It's nice to have found another great one!
John Sessions performs this rather than just reading it. You can tell that he is a very good actor and really puts a lot of effort into his portrayals of the characters.
If you like detective fiction, with some dark humor thrown in, you will enjoy this book and the whole Logan MacRae series. And if you are not familiar with British slang you may want to brush up before reading this author.
The characters are real people, who make mistakes, but keep trying. And the best part is, they are genuinely funny along the way. This is the first book i've listened to by this author, and have to say i thoroughly enjoyed it. The story is quite good, but it's really the odd cast of characters and their dialog that seemed so refreshing and interesting to me. The narration was excellent as well. Highly recommended.
Great book and marvelous narration. The plot is intricate and satisfying. The characters are credible and gritty. I was delighted to come across a new author, or new to me, whose writing has an authentic British flavour and whose characters seem to live on the page.
