While this may come across as a dark, gruesome story,which it is, what makes it different for me is the wide use of dark humor throughout the book. I normally don't care for police stories that attempt to be humorous at the same time but Stuart MacBride can really pull it off. The banter between McRae and his female boss DCI Steele is hilarious. She is a total hoot! I also enjoy McRae's character who holds his superiors in contempt and tends to be a maverick in his job and has a struggle with the bottles at times. This is a very good book along with all the others I have read in the series so far.
After the high-adrenaline speed of the previous book in the series, Flesh House, this one opens a bit slowly. Some time has passed after the fourth book's completion, and the reader is immediately left with some long-lingering questions regarding McRae's personal and private life. Unfortunately, it takes quite a bit of time for those questions to be addressed. But, there are new characters - and returning old favorites like DI Steel - to provide ample and entertaining distraction from those questions. The central crime isn't as flashy, though, and it takes a while for the storyline to be truly absorbing. It makes a striking contrast against the flashy fourth novel in the series.
The "summer love" of Aberdeen feels a bit forced - but once the plot finally starts rolling it does become a more exciting novel. The brief change in scenery to Poland makes for an interesting change. And the dialogue and bantering between the police officers is as funny as ever. I really am enjoying this series. MacBride is a wonderful writer with vivid, colorful imagery (and some great verbs like "rabbiting" and "hurpling"), a gift for creating sympathetic and realistic characters and a keen ear for dialect. It is a real joy to read these mysteries and I am looking forward to reading the next book!
Beautifully rounded characters and nail biting plotlines make the Logan McRae series a joy to read

This one has pushed all the buttons of sex, violence and evil. Not for the faint hearted reader. I enjoyed the threads, but not sure most will. Well done.Published 12 months ago by Amazon Customer
