Publisher's Summary

From the number-one best-selling author of Shatter the Bones and Birthdays for the Dead, a new crime thriller featuring DS Logan McRae. Detective Inspector Logan McRae is finally getting back on his feet after the events of the last few years. Putting things behind him. Getting better.… But it was never going to last. A body turns up on the outskirts of Aberdeen: burned from the neck up, hands chained behind the back.
More murders follow - all gruesome, and with only one obvious connection. The similarities between the real-life killings and the plot of a best-selling novel about witchcraft seem more than coincidental, but the more Logan digs the more dangerous and blurred the line between fact and fiction becomes. It’s a small step from police officer to victim. And somebody’s got to take it, or everyone will die.


What the Critics Say

"Some of the grittiest crime-writing in the field." (Independent)
"MacBride is a damned fine writer - no one does dark and gritty like him." (Peter James)
"Admirers of tough, modern crime novels will be in seventh heaven - or should that be hell?" (Express)

I loved this book - my favourite Logan McRae so far. It had me hooked. Stuart MacBride is totally into his stride with some of his best description yet. I don't care that it's far-fetched because it's a great listen and the narrator has his north-east accents down to a T. I may be biased as I'm originally from Aberdeen. Perhaps this is my guilty pleasure!

Another good listen

A good laugh and a good listen. Always awaiting the next Logan McCrae instalment. A different kind of crime novel, but I love it
