Publisher's Summary

READ BY THE AUTHOR HIMSELF! Stuart MacBride who read his previous book for HarperAudio ‘Blind Eye’ was a complete success and we have no doubt that this will be another triumph by MacBride. With his ability to set the scene and goings on of Detective Sergeant Logan McRae this is a must have audiobook.
Richard Knox has served his time, so why shouldn’t he be allowed to live wherever he wants? Yes, in the past he was a violent rapist, but he’s seen the error of his ways. Found God. Wants to leave his dark past in Newcastle behind him and make a new start.
Or so he says.
Detective Sergeant Logan McRae isn’t exactly thrilled to be part of the team helping Knox settle into his new Aberdeen home. He’s even less thrilled to be stuck with DSI Danby from Northumbria Police – the man who put Knox behind bars for ten years – supposedly here to ‘keep an eye on things’.
Only things are about to go very, very wrong.
Edinburgh gangster Malk the Knife wants a slice of the development boom Donald Trump’s golf course is bringing to the Granite City, whether local crime lord Wee Hamish Mowat likes it or not. Three heavies from Newcastle want a ‘quiet word’ with DSI Danby about a missing mob accountant. And Richard Knox’s dark past isn’t done with him yet…

A thoroughly good, entertaining 'read'.

Stuart McBride takes you along on a roller coaster ride of a police story. Like the previous books in this series, it is full of violence and stretched reality. However, the multiple plot lines keep the reader enthralled as Logan McCrae picks his way through, battling against the criminals and his superiors. The characters are highly entertaining, and Detective Inspector Steel is nearly worthy of a book of her own. The interplay between the characters is superb, full of threat, slightly sarcastic, and highly amusing. I'm a fan of the series, so I'm biased, but I would recommend this, and the previous books, to anyone who enjoys a really good, intelligent story.
Stuart McBride narrates the story, and he adds much to the story by giving each character an identity of their own. His narration shows that he is a natural story teller and his enthusiasm for his creations is displayed in the telling.
I have listened to this book whilst working out in the gym, and I became so lost in the story my workload has increased.
I look forward to the next book.
