Publisher's Summary

Two bloody brilliant short stories from number-one best-selling crime writer Stuart MacBride, featuring DS Logan McRae and his boss, DI Steel.

'Stramash': something fishy is happening on the isle of Jura. DS Logan McRae gets a phone call from DI Steel ordering him to come to the island at once. One freezing night's sleep in a hatchback and two storm-battered ferries later, Logan arrives - but there's no sign of Steel.

She's lumped him in the middle of a policing nightmare, with bodies and bullets and tiny, wee boats. And a dangerous hard man who's meant to be dead....

DI Steel's 'Bad Heir Day': why is DI Steel in an even worse mood than usual? Is it because it's Christmas? Or maybe it's because the missing persons case she's just caught looks like a hoax from a mile off. Or is it because she's just been left a huge amount of money?

One thing's for certain: Steel's having a bad day, and she's hell-bent on making sure Constable Guthrie has one, too.

Short story should be free

I have bought the other series but had to pay 10$ for an hour length short story. Should be free

What a rip off. Thought I was getting a novel

Ripped off. Nearly 10 dollars for a short story. Come on audible your better than that.
