Stuart MacBride has been writing bestselling novels for over ten years and has remained at the top of his game, achieving the number one Sunday Times bestseller position on publication for the last four years in a row.
This January will see the release of his ninth Logan McRae novel - an ambitious attempt to convey realistically what divisional Scottish policing is like on the ground; whilst creating a page-turning plot centred around the murder of a young girl.
One mistake can cost you everything…
When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a ‘development opportunity’ out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire.
Welcome to divisional policing – catching drug dealers, shop lifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal.
Then a little girl’s body washes up just outside the sleepy town of Banff, kicking off a massive manhunt.
The Major Investigation Team is up from Aberdeen, wanting answers, and they don’t care who they trample over to get them.
Logan’s got enough on his plate keeping B Division together, but DCI Steel wants him back on her team.
As his old colleagues stomp around the countryside, burning bridges, Logan gets dragged deeper and deeper into the investigation.
One thing’s clear: there are dangerous predators lurking in the wilds of Aberdeenshire, and not everyone’s going to get out of this alive…
Stuart has undertaken in-depth research into the Scottish police force and has produced a novel that is as close to reality as possible - one which is arguably his best yet.
He continues to be a force to reckon with within the crime writing community – evident in the praise from his peers and readers alike.
Stuart’s other works include Half head and Sawbones.
