In the Cold Dark Ground, by Stuart MacBride. Review by Barbara Copperthwaite

“MacBride makes other police procedural novels look po-faced”

THEY SAY:

THE SUNDAY TIMES NO. 1 BESTSELLER

The new Logan McRae novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of THE MISSING AND THE DEAD and A SONG FOR THE DYING.

Sergeant Logan McRae is in trouble…

His missing-persons investigation has just turned up a body in the woods – naked, hands tied behind its back, and a bin bag duct-taped over its head. The Major Investigation Team charges up from Aberdeen, under the beady eye of Logan’s ex-boss Detective Chief Inspector Steel. And, as usual, she wants him to do her job for her.

But it’s not going to be easy: a new Superintendent is on her way up from the Serious Organised Crime Task Force, hell-bent on making Logan’s life miserable; Professional Standards are gunning for Steel; and Wee Hamish Mowat, head of Aberdeen’s criminal underbelly, is dying – leaving rival gangs from all over the UK eyeing his territory.

There’s a war brewing and Logan’s trapped right in the middle, whether he likes it or not.

I SAY:

Possibly the unluckiest police sergeant in the world, Logan McRae, is back in his tenth book. A gang war is threatening to break out, but looks almost civilised compared to Logan personal life. Will he have the guts…TO READ IN FULL, CLICK HERE
