Publisher's Summary

Aberdeen's growing Polish community is under attack from a serial offender who leaves mutilated victims to be discovered on building sites - eyes gouged out and the sockets burned. Detective Sergeant Logan McRae is assigned to the investigation, codenamed Operation Oedipus, but with the victims too scared to talk, it's going nowhere fast. When the next victim turns out to be not a newly arrived Eastern European, but Simon McLeod, owner of the Turf n' Track bookies, Logan suddenly finds himself caught up in a world of drug wars, prostitution rings and gun-running courtesy of Aberdeen's oldest and most vicious crime lord.

Another good read made better by being unabridged

I'm still only half way through this latest DS McRae outing but so far it's much better than the others. Why? Because we finally get an unabridged version of one of the books. I've always felt that the other books have been missing something due to being shortened, but here we get the full story as intended (and brilliantly read) by the author. So come on Audible, do us all a favour and obtain the unabridged versions of his other works. They are available, although very expensive, on other media.

Stuart MacBride's DS McRae, although previously described as 'no Rebus' is an excellently drawn character and these books make a cracking listen on a long journey. They really help pass the time. If you like Modern Detective stories then you can't go wrong with this one. A word of warning however - I would advise listening to these novels on order, as there is a lot of character backstory that carries over across the series.

Entertainment at high speed!

A brilliant story from Mr MacBride, as always, but goodness did he rush through it. I thought I'd set my player on double speed. His almost breathless narration very nearly spoiled the experience for me. Very nearly, but not quite. His characterisations were wonderful, Logan as always getting the sharp end of the stick, Steele at her acidic best, and I just wanted to punch Finney in the mouth. The secondary story had me wincing with embarrassment on Logan's behalf and Rennie's 'Sperminator' had me not touching handrails for weeks afterwards. Well done, Stuart. Another winner, but please, slow down next time, eh? My ears can't listen as fast as you read :-D
