Disappointing and far fetched. Found myself irritated by both "Ash" (agressive and self-justifying) and especially Alice, what a little wet rag, fiddling with her hair and hugging herself all the time. I may have missed it, but how old was this woman supposed to be? I finished it only out of curiousity and now find I cannot remember what happened, just how irritated I was by these two characters and their foibles. A shame, this book promised much but delivered little.
Ash Henderson isn't my favourite of Stuart MacBride's detectives, I cannot seem to warm to him at all - am afraid Logan McCrae takes the number one spot for me. However, as always I did enjoy Stuart MacBride's book, I like his style of writing and the wit he uses, I like his character development and the storylines - always just the right mix of gore and procedure for me. Maybe Ash just needs to grow on me a little :)
Stuart Macbride writes very well this is his tenth book I have read. I have not been able to put any of them down which has made sleeping difficult! When you get a book that keeps you engrossed you know it is good and the character Logan Mcrae is great.
I hadn't realised that this book was the second of two books. I shall definitely read the first book, as the second story was crime with a different slant. Very absorbing. Although set in a fictitious city the descriptions were so detailed it could have been an actual city. Perhaps it was. I would have preferred a real location, as with Stuart MacBride's Logan MacRae tales.
Boring at times. Difficult to believe that a Police C I havibng been cleared of murder could still be kept in jail as his tormentor arranged for him to be beaten up and then blamed for starting a fight! Even more difficult to believe that he can be rescued and then given enough leaway as if nothing had changed. Having said that and annoyanceses apart a good easy read
