With DS Logan McRae back at work after spending a year recovering from a near fatal stabbing he had been directed to ease into the job But when the call came in that a body had been found and that body was of a child he found himself lead investigator in a case that would consume him and the local police for the next few weeks The weather in Aberdeen was cruel an icy cold winter had attacked the residents with the bitter wind relentless in its fury The snow removed any chance of finding evidence the constant rain made everyone s lives miserable He could see this would be one that no one would want to volunteer forWithin days there were children missing bodies being found A sadistic serial killer was on the loose and the full resources of the law were needed to stop the horror But it seemed the media knew than the police did Did the department have a leak How could the reporter know immediately they did even sometimes before the detectives knew As the dangers intensified and the suspects multiplied Logan felt the intense pressure of looming failure would they find the vicious killer before died I thoroughly enjoyed this brilliant crime novel by Scottish author Stuart McBride Cold Granite is gripping and intense with a rollicking pace that kept the pages turning until the end I hated having to put the book down wanting to get back to the thrill of the chase the chills of discovering the answers I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Cold Granite and will be getting my hands on 2 in the series very soon

Cold Granite Summary ↠ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Summary ✓ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ✓ Stuart MacBride Read Cold Granite DS Logan McRae and the police in Aberdeen hunt a child killer who stalks the frozen streets Winter in Aberdeen murder mayhem and terrible weather It's DS Logan McRae's first day back on the job after a year off on the sick and it co. Dead things had always been special to him Their delicate coldness The feel of the skin The ripe sweet smell as they decayed As they returned to God Detective Logan McRae comes back to work after months of recovery from a savage knife attack from a suspect which left him severely wounded His stomach is a mass of scar tissue His mental state is reasonably stable considering that scars on the body tend to leave scars on the mind as well He works for the Aberdeen police department located in the Scottish Highlands The weather is wet and windy and because it is wet the granite hills surrounding Aberdeen seem even desolate to the eye and because it is windy the cold chills the body to the bone It all begins barely before McRae can warm a seat at the station with the discovery of a dead child Then another Then another child goes missing The window for a live recovery of a child taken is a very small amount of time and McRae soon finds himself in a pressure cooker to find something anything that will put him on the right trail He also has another case involving an adult male He has a pretty good idea which of the local heavies has thrown this grotesue artwork into the water but he needs some evidence to tie the bastards to the crime And no kneecaps Both hairy legs had ragged holes in them where a normal person would keep their knees The flesh was torn and tattered around the joint yellow bone poking through the mess of hacked up tissue Whoever had done this hadn t been bothered about making a tidy job of it This was unelective surgery by enthusiasm rather than skill As if Logan McCrae s life isn t difficult enough in walks Colin Miller local reporter who has information that will help him with his case The only problem is Miller is ambitious and wants a uid pro uo The type of information that will jam McCrae up with his pocket full of sweets boss DI Insch the inspector who had discovered an open packet of winegums in his overcoat and was busily picking off the little bits of fluff and pocket grit Ahh yes do be careful about the tuffs of lint when accepting a piece of candy from DI Insch Another complication for McCrae is watching his ex girlfriend the medical examiner walking around like God s gift to all mankind Isobel MacAlister turned up looking as if she d just stepped off a catwalk long Burberry raincoat dark green trouser suit cream high collared blouse delicate pearl earrings her short hair artistically tousled Wellington boots three sizes too big for her She looked so good it hurt A further problem is if McRae and the team can not make progress soon the professionals from down south will be up both their nostrils If we don t watch out Edinburgh are going to take over And we ll all end up looking like sheep shagging small town halfwits Needless to say all of these elements increase the pressure on an inspector who is trying to shake the rust off before one of his mistakes costs a child his life The people populating this novel are refreshingly not PC The setting is damp and cold adding hindrances to an already complicated investigation There is a defense attorney who is loathed by everyone but his clients The police officers refer to him as Sandy the Snake or Hissing Sid and much worse The press through the manipulations of Miller are creating havoc with the direction of the investigation There are also vigilantes just to add some extra curry to the mix who are deciding who is guilty The uestion is can McRae set aside the myriad of distractions and focus on the slender stack of clues Can he catch the killer before another young child is taken I m definitely continuing with the series The bungling the luck the exploration of human weakness and the intuitive deductions give this series a feel of a real life human drama The setting in cold granite Aberdeen certainly adds some fascinating elements to the plot Stuart McBride is creatively descriptive of rather grotesue situations so a word of caution for those who like their mysteries softboiled rather than gritty and of the Scotch egg variety If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
