9780007216833: Broken Skin (Logan McRae)

The Number One bestselling crime series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. In this third DS Logan McRae thriller, The Granite City's seedy side is about to be exposed...A crime of passion, or cold-hearted murder? A serial rapist is leaving a string of tortured women behind him, but while DS Logan McRae's girlfriend, PC Jackie 'Ball Breaker' Watson, is out acting as bait, he's trying to identify a blood-drenched body dumped outside Accident and Emergency. Logan's investigations suggest someone in the local bondage community has developed a taste for violent death, and he soon finds himself dragged into the twilight world of pornographers, sex-shops and S&M. Meanwhile, the prime suspect in the rape case turns out to be Aberdeen Football Club's star striker, and he has an alibi for every attack. Logan thinks they've got it horribly wrong, but can he get anyone to listen before the real rapist strikes again? Especially as Jackie is convinced the footballer's guilty and she's hell-bent on a conviction at any cost...

From the Back Cover:

Praise for Dying Light
“Fans of Ian Rankin and Denise Mina will enjoy the mordant MacBride, whose second novel is every bit as dark and riveting as his debut, Cold Granite.”
--- Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Any of the flamboyant evildoers in Dying Light could carry a terrific whodunit.”
--- Entertainment Weekly
Praise for Cold Granite
“Stuart MacBride joins an illustrious roster of Scottish crime writers. . . . By tangling together a half-dozen competing plot lines, MacBride keeps readers off-balance, even those who think they can see the tripwires.”
--- Houston Chronicle
“Grade: A . . . Tartan noir has a fresh new voice with an Aberdeen brogue in Stuart MacBride, whose first mystery,  Cold Granite, bids well to keep up with Ian Rankin and Denise Mina. . . . I’m already looking forward to the next installment in the career of Det. Sgt. McRae.”
--- Rocky Mountain News
“McRae is an interesting and subtle detective, and his investigation is both inventive and imaginative.”
--- Dallas Morning News
“Unbelievably assured and accomplished . . . MacBride is starting at the very top with his first book, which approaches the level of Michael Connelly’s best work. . . . MacBride’s writing is so good here that it’s hard to believe it’s not a sign of staying power.”
--- Flint Journal
