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

Would you listen to Dying Light again? Why?
Yes. I love the Stuart MacBride series. The books are fast paced and the characters excellently developed. I am still plowing through the series, but if I went back and reread I'd probably find things I missed the first time. Plus, although the main character is great, I'd read them all over again just for DI Steel
What other book might you compare Dying Light to and why?
This series is pretty stand out for me. I've not read such a gritty and humorous crime series like this before where I could compare it to anything else.
Any additional comments?
I see on Goodreads that people knock DI Steel, but I find her the best character. She's horrendously brazen and obtuse. She's the funniest interruption in the series and underneath all her scratching, threats and bullying her heart comes through like a beacon. I normally read though a book or a series and the characters are just that, but Steel is probably my favorite character of any books that I have read - and I AM ALWAYS listening to books. To Mr. MacBride - please don't ever kill her off as she brings a fantastic element to your series.

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.

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!!

I found this follow on to book 1 extremly griping and could not stop and had to finish it. It is so well written and narrated that you feel like giving DS McRae a kick up the bum.
the characters are very believeable and the plot has enough twists to make it interesting
