Currently Reading - The Missing & The Dead, Stuart MacBride

Can't tell you how pleased I was when this arrived. There was dancing.

From the Blurb:

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…


One of the annoying things about being in the UK at the moment is that Australia is getting the latest McBride - Logan MacRae series - Christmas while I have to wait to January...bloody frustrating. A terrific author and superb characters. DI Steele is the favourite for me.

But in this case I really sympathise with you. Nothing more frustrating than waiting for the next Logan MacRae book. (And I agree 100% on DI Steele)
