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 in Dying Light, 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 McRae 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.

From the Inside Flap:

“MacRae is an interesting and subtle detective, and his investigation is both inventive and imaginative.”
---Dallas Morning News Detective Sergeant Logan MacRae has been bumped to D.I. Roberta Steel’s “Screw-up Squad” after a raid he led on a warehouse rumored to be full of stolen property ended with no arrests and one officer critically injured. The backstabbing, limelight-stealing, laziest D.I. on Aberdeen’s police force, Steel’s team is made up of the “no-hopers,” the most worthless or inexperienced members of the homicide department, and Logan will do anything to prove he doesn’t belong there. Including working overtime on two baffling cases: the murder by arson of six people, and the beating to death of a prostitute down by the docks, not a high priority compared to the fire. At least not until another prostitute ends up dead.
 Although both cases seem simple on the surface---turns out the fire’s victims are part of a drug dealer’s inner circle, and what fate is to be expected for working girls in Aberdeen’s red-light district? --- in Stuart MacBride’s hands, what’s going on in this rainy Scottish city is bound to be much more complicated than it appears. A detailed authenticity combines with a dark Scottish sense of humor and a lively cast of characters in MacBride’s unputdownable second novel, confirming his status as a rising star of crime fiction.
