9780007419456: Dying Light (Logan McRae, Book 2)

The Number One bestselling detective series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride continues in this second crime thriller. It’s summertime in Scotland: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying…

She’s just the first. How many more will die?

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 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…

An unputdownable serial killer tale packed with mystery and suspense, as well as Stuart MacBride’s distinctive grittiness and dark humour.

From the Back Cover:

With this follow-up to COLD GRANITE , deemed an "impressive debut" by Publishers Weekly, Stuart MacBride proves himself to be a rising star of crime fiction--and this time, the action is more explosive than ever…
 
A FALL FROM GRACE
On the coast of Scotland, in the "Granite City" of Aberdeen, Detective Sergeant Logan MacRae is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Bumped to the homicide department's "Screw-up Squad" after a sting operation gone wrong, Logan will do anything to prove that he doesn't belong there…even if it means working overtime on two baffling cases: a fatal act of arson in a squatter's apartment and the murder of a prostitute in the city's notorious red-light district.
 
  A DEADLY UPRISING
But when it rains in Aberdeen, it pours--and soon Logan is up to his neck in danger. Turns out the two cases might have something dangerously in common. Now, enlisting the help of his former D.I., his forensic-pathologist ex-girlfriend, and his fellow "no-hopers" on the squad, Logan is charged not only with solving a series of vicious crimes but saving his own life--and reputation--in the process.
 
"Well-written…savage, darkly comic." -- Publishers Weekly
 
"Inventive and imaginative." -- Dallas Morning News
