Publisher's Summary

Aberdeen is panicking. It's been 18 years since Grampian Police caught the Flesher - the notorious serial killer who butchered people all over the UK - and seven years since he was released from Peterhead prison, his conviction overturned on appeal. But when a container, full of joints of human meat turns up at Aberdeen Harbour it kicks off the largest man hunt in Aberdeen's history. Ken Wiseman is on the run and looking for revenge. As senior police officers descend on the Granite City from up and down the county, Detective Sergeant Logan McRae is lumbered with the unenviable task of babysitting Chief Constable Mark Faulds from Birmingham - one of the original investigation team - and trying to keep DI Insch from throwing his career away in his obsessive quest to see Wiseman behind bars before he kills again. When members of the team that put Wiseman away in 1990 start going missing, Logan knows that things aren't as straightforward as everyone thinks. More and more human meat is turning up in the food chain. Twenty years of secrets and lies are being dragged into the light. And the only thing that's certain is Aberdeen will never be the same again.

Yuck!

Not for the fainthearted. Stuart MacBride makes me laugh though he may have to take responsibility for my current aversion to meat.

Grisly

This was one of the most grisly books in this series to date and at times was difficult to listen to. However, it wasn't so bad that I stopped listening or that it would put me off reading more Stuart Macbride books. The plot was also a little convoluted and while I appreciate some red herrings are necessary, so many false trails was positively annoying. I also found some of the accents used by the narrator, Cameron Stuart, intensely irritating. There was a West Country accent with distinct Scouse or was it, South African overtones, which threw the whole plot thing out of the window.

So, all in all, not a bad book but not one of Stuart MacBride's best either.
