Day 22 of my #bookvent showcasing my top reads of this year. My grateful thanks to Jen Lucas of Jen Med’s Book Reviews, for sharing her #bookvent concept.
Today’s #topread is the 11th in a series that I came to quite late, but have loved each one as the series has developed. A delightful mix of hard boiled crime and dark humour, this is a stand out series made even better by coming from a top notch Scottish writer.
What drives someone to murder?
Some things just won’t stay buried…
Logan McRae’s personal history is hardly squeaky clean, but now that he works for Professional Standards he’s policing his fellow officers.
When Detective Inspector Bell turns up dead in the driver’s seat of a crashed car it’s a shock to everyone. Because Bell died two years ago, they buried him. Or they thought they did.
As an investigation is launched into Bell’s stabbing, Logan digs into his past. Where has he been all this time? Why did he disappear? And what’s so important that he felt the need to come back from the dead?
But the deeper Logan digs, the more bones he uncovers – and there are people out there who’ll kill to keep those skeletons buried. If Logan can’t stop them, DI Bell won’t be the only one to die…
Logan McRae is in a class of his own and in this book Stuart MacBride is on excellent form, keeping McRae fresh and relevant with a dark and chilling storyline punctuated by sharp wit and punchy dialogue.
