Stuart MacBride's Number One bestselling crime series opens with this award-winning debut. DS Logan McRae and the police in Aberdeen hunt a child killer who stalks the frozen streets.

And if Logan isn't careful, he could end up joining them.… (mer)

A new author for me and a bleak story set in a very bleak wintry Aberdeen involving nasty child disappearances and murders. The characters encompass the victims, their families, the local ne’er do well crooks, the pathologist, and the team of cops. Unusually, and refreshingly, the mainly cop gets on with his boss - a nice change. Including the pathologist delivers somy gruesome ortopsy detail! Well worth the read and I’ll look out another. ( )

I'm glad to have discovered this series - there are plenty left for me to read. This is set in Aberdeen, and is a little dark in places, but generally brisk and gently humorous. It read like a spin-off from another series (but I don't think it is) with the hero Logan returning to work after a serious injury resulting from a previous case which is constantly harked back to, and having previously been in a relationship with the pathologist, who now hates him.

There were various missing and murdered children and one adult, and I am happy to say that not all of these turned out to be miraculously linked; although some were, others turned out to be unlinked tragedies. I like Logan and the feisty WPC Jackie, although I still hate the journalist Miller very much. ( )

Gritty Scottish-noir police search for serial child abducor/murderer. ( )

If you think it's grim oop north, carry on for another 400 miles until you get to Aberdeen. Obviously cold, according to Stuart Macbride, it'll also almost certainly be raining - and usually in an amusing way. Meanwhile DS Logan McRae isn't so amused by the serial killer who's after the city's children. The plot abounds with red-herrings, possible leads, misdirection and all the rest, including some memorable characters and good jokes, though on occasion some strain too hard for memorability - 'the day was dark as a lawyer's soul'(!). The relationship between polis and press is very well done, and the finale, too, is suitably gripping. McRae and those around him do come off the page, and Aberdeen sounds well worth a visit. With an umbrella. ( )

I came across Stuart MacBride when he won "Celebrity Mastermind" a week or so ago. The host asked Macbride what he did when his first novel, "Cold Granite",was so well received that his publishers asked him for the next novel in the series, even though he had no plan for one. MacBride replied, "Well, it was write another novel or carry on working in IT. So... here's another novel."


That was enough for me to get hold of an audio book copy of *Cold Granite"


Set in the perpetually rain-drenched granite streets of Aberdeen, "Cold Granite" tells the story of DS Logan "Lazarus" McRae's return to work after a long sick leave recovering from a knife attack. On his first day back he ends up investigating the death of a young child.


What follows is a very Scottish police procedural, crammed with local colour, larger than life characters, raucous humour and unflinching descriptions of death, decay and violence.


The pace is perfect. The relationships inside the police force and between the police officers and the press felt very real. There are plenty of credible suspects, a twisted trail of crimes and criminals and, at the heart of it all, a young DS still learning his trade. McRae works hard, is not yet comfortable with his rank, occasionally screws up but mostly spends his energy doggedly pulling together the pieces of the puzzle that can lead him to the murderer.


It is straightforward crime fiction that delivers good entertainment and memorable characters.


Like MacBride's publishers, I'm demanding more. Fortunately, I'm twelve years late to this party so there are another nine books already in print.


"Cold Granite" is narrated with great skill by Steve Worsley.
