Dying Light

Crime / Mystery eBooks of the Month

LoveReading View on Dying Light

The second in a character series which I believe will just go on getting better and better.  Set in Aberdeen where the portrayal of the city’s underbelly and chill are an important part of the escalating atmosphere, this is violent, gang-land stuff.  A police procedural series well worth following.

Similar this month: Craig Russell.
Comparison: Ian Rankin, Peter James (police series), Graham Hurley.

Dying Light Synopsis

It's summertime in the Granite city: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying…

It starts with Rosie Williams, a prostitute, stripped naked and beaten to death down by the docks - the heart of Aberdeen's red light district. For DS Logan McRae it's a bad start to another bad day.

Rosie Williams won't be the only one making an unscheduled trip to the morgue. Across the city six people are burning to death in a petrol-soaked squat, the doors and windows screwed shut from the outside. And despite Logan's best efforts, it's not long before another prostitute turns up on the slab…

Stuart MacBride's characteristic grittiness, gallows humour and lively characterization are to the fore in this unputdownable serial killer tale.
