Publisher's Summary

The new Logan McRae novel from the number-one best-selling author of The Missing and the Dead and A Song for the Dying.
Sergeant Logan McRae is in trouble.... His missing-persons investigation has just turned up a body in the woods - naked, hands tied behind its back, and a bin bag duct taped over its head. The Major Investigation Team charges up from Aberdeen under the beady eye of Logan's ex-boss, Detective Chief Inspector Steel. And, as usual, she wants him to do her job for her.
But it's not going to be easy: a new superintendent is on her way up from the Serious Organised Crime Task Force, hell-bent on making Logan's life miserable; Professional Standards are gunning for Steel; and Wee Hamish Mowat, head of Aberdeen's criminal underbelly, is dying - leaving rival gangs from all over the UK eying his territory.
There's a war brewing, and Logan's trapped right in the middle, whether he likes it or not.

Logan does it again

Another in the Logan McRae series and possibly the best. This story has pace, twists and the inimitable dark humour of the series along with a great plot.

I am in awe of Mr MacBride. I love the characters he creates and the story has many twists with some surprising turns in this one. Again another dramatic and wonderful performance by Steve Worsley. Great job!
