What can I say...it's Stuart MacBride. Smart, tightly plotted & laugh out funny.
Just as an aside to the person who went through the book with a pencil "correcting" the Scottish vernacular: people like me pick this up to read the AUTHOR'S words, not yours. Please either write your own book or buy a personal copy. Then you can grab a pencil & knock yourself out.

Excellent read. Plot holds. Mystery and intrigue. Couldn't wait to pick it up again.

Very well written story but lots of grim and graphic violence. In parts raw and gritty, mixed occasionally with touches of humour . Well developed characters and plot set in the cold miserable winter in Aberdeen. A glimpse into the human side of police officers trying to cope with and solve horrendous crimes.

Pretty standard mystery and detective type story similar to many others already written. One annoying feature for me was the number of UK or Scotish codes or letters making it sometimes difficult to read.

Good Aberdeen description and attempt to get the accent. Very trite plot.

First by this author, I enjoyed it and will read more.
Scottish detective - standard model of unruly, unconventional, yet successful. A dead child, more missing, maybe a serial killer. Of course, several suspects and sirprises.

Wonderful books filled with great story lines and sharp humour.

As someone said DI Steel is a national treasure of Scotland.
