Publisher's Summary

The number one best-selling 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....
It's summertime in the Granite City: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying....
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....

Critic Reviews

" Dying Light is a wonderfully gripping and grim second outing for Logan McRae.... Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order." (Mark Billingham)

Loved it!!

This was one of my favorite books of the year. The dialogue is great and the gallows humor priceless.

Happy to have found a new series to listen to

What did you love best about Dying Light?

Logan McRae is a talented, well intentioned policeman who seems to manage to not quite stuff things up.

What about Steve Worsley’s performance did you like?

Easy-to-listen-to scottish accent. Good with voices.

Once you start you cannot stop

Logan McRae is so human, clever and flawed in equal measure. This is not an easy listen in places but has a good conclusion and I look forward to the next audio offering.

Really good second novel

Sometimes with series of books I find the first one excellent so really look forward to reading the next one and it ends up being a bit of a disappointment, but not this one, certainly not!! Some more than gory bits if you don’t like that sort of thing, and a couple of times I could’ve slapped one or two of the protagonists because their behaviour seems way out of line, but as a whole I liked most of the police officers and some really nice hissy villains. And some quite funny bits.

A darn good “read” and looking forward to number 3!!
