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
Once again a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone who likes detective books. Bit over the top regards how Aberdeen is but full of humour and holds your interest so much you do not want to put it down. Hope he has a new one soon.
Maybe I am a wimp ut I would have lord this book for the plot but the descriptions of gratuitous violence was more than a little off putting. That said I thought that it was a very clever twist which I had not even given the slightest thought to so I probably would read another
What can I say? Another terrific book from Stuart MacBride. The story is typically gruesome but also typically gripping. Mr MacBride's books are not for the faint hearted but he is such a good writer and, as more and more horrifying events took place I was swept along in a desire to find out how the whole sorry mess would be resolved.
This thriller was enjoyable until about half way though. It's too long and becomes a bit repetitive and therefore boring. But the thing that really lets this book down is the unbelievable ending and to be honest, in my opinion, the last hundred pages or so are a mess. I usually really enjoy Stuart McBride but I think he was just trying to be too clever this time.
