Slight spoiler, info that is later in the book
Does mr. Macbride have children I wonder? I found the story of the 8 year old boy unbelievable and the way they treated that crime. I'm not sure Ivey ever even heard of that type of murder by a child that young. If so, it's handled very differently than I believe they handled it. Of course, I'm in the US... but still locking an 8 year old up until he is 30? I doubt that entire narrative. I hope in the future me. Macbride does more research on child crime. The way they manhandled him etc....sorry I didn't buy it. Not 8. I have a grandson 8 years old. I know what they are capable of. Certainly not this kind of crime.even IF he could we don't treat children like adult criminals...he was even a teen.
As anyone who has read mr macbride knows these are great books. Don't hesitate because of minor flaws. I just wanted to point that out because it bothered me. Otherwise great narration, fascinating story. Enjoy.

Can't handle an 8-year-old
Overall the book is good, but sometimes the main character is as stupid as the people they arrest say the cops are. Logan gets beat up by an 8-year-old. An 8-year-old! One he knew was armed and dangerous. One he was ready for. One he knew was violent. Plus Logan is just so wishy-washy sometimes. My only explanation is that he's continously sleep-deprived. Unfortunately he also seems to be the best the Aberdeen police have, which isn't saying much.
However, the characters remain interesting. This series has plenty of humor. The books are good. They could be better if Logan becomes more skilled than lucky.

Great writer,Great Narration
Stuart Mac Bride is one of the best. Yes his books are too gruesome and some parts are ridiculous. He makes up for this with true to life ,great characters and a quirky dark humor I love. A reviewer for one of his books said the dialogue was too immature. These represent real people coping.If they were serious and mature all the time they wouldn't last long.

Another great one.
Gruesome at times but a fabulous read. The characters are quite interesting and the black humor had me chuckling aloud. I enjoy this series and the narration is perfect. I'm only sorry the next book in the series isn't available at Audible for another few weeks. I have it pre-ordered.
