Broken Skin (Logan Mcrae, Book 3), Paperback
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Number One bestselling crime series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride.

In this third DS Logan McRae thriller, The Granite City's seedy side is about to be exposed...A crime of passion, or cold-hearted murder?

A serial rapist is leaving a string of tortured women behind him, but while DS Logan McRae's girlfriend, PC Jackie 'Ball Breaker' Watson, is out acting as bait, he's trying to identify a blood-drenched body dumped outside Accident and Emergency.

Logan's investigations suggest someone in the local bondage community has developed a taste for violent death, and he soon finds himself dragged into the twilight world of pornographers, sex-shops and S&M.

Meanwhile, the prime suspect in the rape case turns out to be Aberdeen Football Club's star striker, and he has an alibi for every attack.

Logan thinks they've got it horribly wrong, but can he get anyone to listen before the real rapist strikes again?

Especially as Jackie is convinced the footballer's guilty and she's hell-bent on a conviction at any cost...

Review by

Broken Skin is an entertaining read largely because all the lead characters are flawed in one way or another making them real. The book is overlong stretching its plots over three live cases - none of which would hold a book on its own - but the sparkling and witty dialogue and likeable characters ensure the reader is never bored.
