Like dealing with Mrs Black - who hates her neighbour, the police, and everyone else. Or identifying the homeless man who drank himself to death behind some bins. Or tracking down the wife and kids of someone who's just committed suicide.
But when the dead bodies start turning up, one thing's certain - Logan's week is about to get a whole lot worse...

Review by readingwithtea
"The Espace pulled forward up the ramp, apparently unaware that they had nearly had an extra three passengers in the back seat, complete with patrol car."I read this in two sittings (over two days).Great fiction it's not, but:- I've never read any of the others in the series, and had no trouble with the characters or any pre-events (there's one bit that seems a little out of character so now I want to read the earlier books to make sense of it!)- It was definitely gripping and I plowed through the pages- It's got a very strong sense of setting in Aberdeen - a great mix of accents, local landmarks, the mix of suburbia and a seedier underbelly- Both McRae and Steel are well-developed characters (Steel felt somewhat caricatured) and minor characters are left to be just that.Good fun.
