Publisher's Summary

The new Logan McRae novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of Close of the Bone and A Song for the Dying.
One mistake can cost you everything…When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a ‘development opportunity' out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire.
Welcome to divisional policing - catching drug dealers, shop lifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal.
Then a little girl's body washes up just outside the sleepy town of Banff, kicking off a massive manhunt. The Major Investigation Team is up from Aberdeen, wanting answers, and they don't care who they trample over to get them.
Logan's got enough on his plate keeping B Division together, but DCI Steel wants him back on her team. As his old colleagues stomp around the countryside, burning bridges, Logan gets dragged deeper and deeper into the investigation.
One thing's clear: there are dangerous predators lurking in the wilds of Aberdeenshire, and not everyone's going to get out of this alive…


What the Critics Say

"MacBride is the natural heir to the late and much lamented Reginald Hill" ( Andrew Taylor, Spectator)
"MacBride is a damned fine writer - no one does dark and gritty like him' Peter James‘Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order' Mark Billingham‘Some of the grittiest crime-writing in the field' Independent‘Admirers of tough, modern crime novels will be in seventh heaven - or should that be hell?' Express‘Ferocious and funny' Val McDermid‘Hard-hitting prose with a bone-dry humour and characters you can genuinely believe in, Stuart MacBride's novels are a real treat' Simon Kernick

Glad I persevered

I've loved all of the Logan McRae books and pre-ordered this one as soon as I could. I had a long car journey to get through and I was sure this was just what I needed. For the first couple of hours I kept waiting for the big case to start and began to get frustrated when the story wandered around from case to case. I very nearly gave up when I got to the end of my car journey and we still hadn't got our teeth into anything like the usual Logan McRae adventure. I'm very glad I kept going though as I eventually got sucked into the day to day routine and got more involved in the numerous cases that Logan dealt with. The tension and excitement grew and by the end I was very sad it was over. Although this book wasn't what I'd expected at the outset, it really was very enjoyable and I can't wait for the next one.
The narration by Steve Worsley is fantastic.

Another great Logan book

I've now listened to all the unabridged Logan books and this one didn't disappoint! Love Steele - she has a heart there somewhere!

You do need to listen to these in order as the background follows through the series. Another great listen from MacBride - more please....
