Publisher's Summary

The new Logan McRae thriller set in gritty Aberdeen, from the bestselling author of Cold Granite and Dark Blood.
'You will raise money for the safe return of Alison and Jenny McGregor. If you raise enough money within fourteen days they will be released. If not, Jenny will be killed. 'Alison and Jenny McGregor - Aberdeen's own mother-daughter singing sensation - are through to the semi-finals of TV smash-hit Britain's Next Big Star. They're in all the gossip magazines, they've got millions of YouTube hits, and everyone loves them.
But their reality-TV dream has turned into a real-life nightmare. The ransom demand appears in all the papers, on the TV, and the internet, telling the nation to dig deep if they want to keep Alison and Jenny alive. The media want action; the public displays of grief and anger are reaching fever-pitch. Time is running out, but DS Logan McRae and his colleagues have nothing to go on: the kidnappers haven't left a single piece of forensic evidence. The investigation is going nowhere.
It looks as if the price of fame just got a lot higher...

What the Critics Say

"A terrific writer ... bodies abound, blood flows freely and McRae is a delight." (The Times)
"Some of the grittiest crime-writing in the field ... etched in the darkest of hues and with dialogue so sharp you might cut yourself." (Independent)
"Hard-hitting prose with a bone-dry humour and characters you can genuinely believe in, Stuart MacBride's Logan McRae series of novels are a real treat." (Simon Kernick)

Another great book from MacBride

I have enjoyed all of MacBride's books and was eagerly awaiting this release. I was not disappointed.

Twists and turns through the book mean that you are left guessing who dunit until the last few pages.

Get it - you wont regret it

Fast and funny. A great read!

A great, fast paced story with brilliant characters. This is the first book in ages that has made me want to work longer just so I could listen a bit more!

Despite the gore, profanities and sometimes infuriating incompetence of certain characters, this novel is really funny. I especially loved the descriptions of people in the book, and have got some of the insults stored for future use!

The narration was great too. It was really nice to hear a Scottish novel read by a Scottish narrator. I have never read (or listened to) anything by Stuart MacBride before, but I'm now a fan, and am just about to download another of the Logan McRae series!
