Publisher's Summary

The fourth thriller in the number one best-selling crime series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. Panic grips the Granite City as DS Logan McRae heads up a manhunt for 'The Flesher' - one of the UK's most notorious serial killers.
The case was closed. Until the killer walked free....
When an offshore container turns up at Aberdeen Harbour full of human meat, it kicks off the largest manhunt in the Granite City's history.
Twenty years ago 'The Flesher' was butchering people all over the UK - turning victims into oven-ready joints - until Grampian's finest put him away. But 11 years later he was out on appeal. Now he's missing, and people are dying again.
When members of the original investigation start to disappear, Detective Sergeant Logan McRae realises the case might not be as clear cut as everyone thinks....
Twenty years of secrets and lies are being dragged into the light. And the only thing that's certain is that Aberdeen will never be the same again.

Great writing, but the story is too gory for me

Stuart MacBride is a very skilled and engaging author who makes readers genuinely care about his characters. I really like how he plays with stereotypes and cliches by turning them around in unexpected ways. Unfortunately, this story line was just too gory for me. :(

If you like violence

I really enjoyed the unfolding of the mystery but I did not like the last few chapters. Gross is gross, though I can't think of an ending with swift finesse. The characters are good, the funny quips fly, the tensions are non stop and I still enjoy this series a lot!

not for the faint hearted

What made the experience of listening to Flesh House the most enjoyable?

the narrator was brilliant as always and made all the characters feel real

What other book might you compare Flesh House to, and why?

in terms of detective novels it follows the other Stuart McBride ones, however this one in particular is extremely gruesome and reminds me of Irene by Pierre Lemaitre.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I liked it when they were on the stake out in the car with Steel

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

what ever you do, don't eat the stew.

Any additional comments?

I wouldn't eat while listening to this and when you have finished, you might just want a cheese and tomato sandwich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vegetarian option, anyone?

The usual dark humour & dark story (in fact, several connected stories) with the put upon but worthy Laz McRae at its centre. Amusing characterisation. Gory and great.

Excellent

Another great listen. These just keep getting better and better. Lots of twists and turns a lot of red herrings but a well put together story.

Great narration as always will miss him on the next book.
