Publisher's Summary

Stuart MacBride's number one best-selling 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.

    "I liked this one"

    Intelligent, chock full of interesting characters who "look like cast of Deliverance" as they bear up under winter's rain, snow, wind and cold. The bits of humor wing through when one least expects them. Listen closely, the author entertains from first page to last. And the setting is Scotland. So interesting.

    "Great Story -- But NOT For The Faint Of Heart!"

    If you like the writing style of Tony Parsons' DC Wolfe series starting with, The Murder Bag, or John Verdon's Dave Gurney's novels starting with, Think of a Number, then this will probably be a book you enjoy. However, if you like a story without the gruesome descriptions painted in vivid detail then skip this read. The narration by Worsley is top notch. His tone, pitch, emotion and voice ranges makes the story even better. The quality of the recording is professional.

    The character development is written well and sets up the series. The story is fairly complex and left me wondering & trying to guess whats happenes next. At times, I guessed correctly but still enjoyed how the author led me there. The character interaction and dialog has a wide range of emotions.

    Without spoilers, skip this if you're looking for an action-packed read, or a police procedural without the vivid descriptions of events and characters you're made to hate and detest.

    I rated the story four stars because the gore is more than necessary, but the quality of the narration is a solid five star. I will definitely be listening to the next MacBride book and will listen to anything by Worsley.

    "Finally! The unabridged edition arrives!!!"

    I don't listen to unabridged Audible recordings. If I'm going to listen to a story, I want to hear the whole story, not what an editor decides I should hear. I love the Logan McRae series and have listened to all except the abridged recordings. Stuart MacBride and the Logan McRae series is too good to miss a moment. Please Mr. MacBride, keep them coming!

    "Great book"

    The story line maybe a bit too close to home if you have young children but it is well written and well narrated.

    I enjoyed this book even though the plot line made me uncomfortable at times.

    "Finally the unabridged versions!"

    I started this series at book 5 with the first unabridged version and have been waiting patiently for the early books to come out! Enjoyed all the books on the series and this is no exception. Thankfully book 2 has just been released so off to get that and hope the other 2 are close behind. So pleased to see the same narrator who does a great job with these.

    I'm not a fan of shortened books - so will have to wait for the next 2 to continue my fix of Steele and Logan!
