Product description

Review

‘A powerful, swift-moving narrative … required reading for those who enjoy crime fiction with a bitter taste.’ Andrew Taylor, Spectator

‘A pungent sense of place … a vertiginous climax … Ash Henderson is mesmerisingly ruthless on the page’ Independent

‘Frightening stuff … a cast of characters to die for’ Sun

‘Darkly gripping … as smart a piece of crime fiction as you’re likely to read this year … or next.’ Sunday Sport

‘Fans of tartan noir will devour this fast-paced and in places shocking criminal thriller…a great story with some well thought-out plot lines and really well-developed characters’ Scottish Field

Praise for Stuart MacBride:

‘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

Stuart MacBride is a Scottish writer, most famous for his crime thrillers set in the "Granite City" of Aberdeen and featuring Detective Sergeant Logan McRae. Stuart MacBride was born Feb 27 1969 in Dumbarton, Scotland and raised in Aberdeen. His careers include scrubbing toilets offshore, graphic design, web design and IT/computer programming.

MacBride's publishing deal was secured with the writing of Halfhead, however the publishers were more interested in Cold Granite, concerning DS Logan MacRae. He was signed on a three-book Logan deal, which was further extended to six books. In 2009 he signed another deal, allowing him to write two more Logan books, and two standalone novels, the first of which is due after the sixth installment of the Logan MacRae series.

He now lives in north-east Scotland with his wife, Fiona and their cat Grendel. He is reputed to be a passionate potato grower, but claims to have a "vegetable patch full of weeds".
