Stuart MacBride Book and Novel    

Stuart MacBride - Author


Stuart MacBride was born in Dumbarton, near Glasgow and moved to Aberdeen at the age of two. After dropping out of university to work offshore he went to work for himself as a graphic designer, eventually becoming studio manager for a nationwide marketing company. He gave it all up to have a go at becoming an actor, until it became clear to him that he was never going to be good enough to make a decent living out of it. Whilst progressing through a whole new career in the IT sector ending up as project manager for a global IT company, he also wrote in his spare time.

Stuart MacBride is the author of several bestselling novels featuring DS Logan McRae, including Shatter the Bones, which reached No. 1 in the Sunday Times bestseller list.

The McRae novels have won him the CWA's Dagger in the Library, the Barry Award for Best Debut Novel, and Best Breakthrough Author at the ITV3 crime thriller awards.

Stuart's other works include Halfhead, a near-future thriller, Sawbones, a novella aimed at adult emergent readers, and several short stories.

He lives in the north-east of Scotland with his wife, Fiona and cat, Grendel.


Maxim Jakubowski's view on Stuart MacBride...

BLIND EYE  is the 5th and latest volume in the increasingly popular series of Aberdeen thrillers with DS Logan McRae at the helm. In turns grim, gritty and gruesome, but also with mordant humour and sparkling dialogue between his warring cops, this is Tartan Noir at its very best, and literally begs for a TV adaptation. Not all Scottish cops are as polished as Ian Rankin’s Rebus, and MacBride’s coppers would jump out of the screen.

    I love the Parcelforce package tracker thing. It's like a mystery novel, without the sense of narrative purpose. #WhereTheHellIsMyThing?
