About this ebook

The very first Logan McRae novel in the No.1 bestselling crime series from Stuart MacBride.

DS Logan McRae and the police in Aberdeen hunt a child killer who stalks the frozen streets.

Winter in Aberdeen: murder, mayhem and terrible weather...

It’s DS Logan McRae’s first day back on the job after a year off on the sick, and it couldn’t get much worse. Three-year-old David Reid’s body is discovered in a ditch: strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. And he’s only the first. There’s a serial killer stalking the Granite City and the local media are baying for blood.

Soon the dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. More are going to die. And if Logan isn’t careful, he could end up joining them.

Bit slow at the start (bear with it, its worth it) but once it's going its non stop. My only criticism is that in the heat of w critical moment the writer drones on with insignificant details. That said I will definitely be reading more by him

I hadn't read anything by Stuart MacBride before. Story was well put together, kept you thinking trying to figure out how it would end. Once the story for moving it kept your attention. It's not the most favorable topic, but it's real life stuff, and I'm sure police have had to deal with far worse. So be prepared for what there is to read. Also, I liked how the author had several cases in the story occurring at once. I was happy to learn that the author has made a series with the DS Logan McRae.
