Publisher's Summary

Two bloody brilliant short stories from number-one best-selling crime writer Stuart MacBride, featuring DS Logan McRae and his boss, DI Steel.
'Stramash': something fishy is happening on the isle of Jura. DS Logan McRae gets a phone call from DI Steel ordering him to come to the island at once. One freezing night's sleep in a hatchback and two storm-battered ferries later, Logan arrives - but there's no sign of Steel.
She's lumped him in the middle of a policing nightmare, with bodies and bullets and tiny, wee boats. And a dangerous hard man who's meant to be dead....
DI Steel's 'Bad Heir Day': why is DI Steel in an even worse mood than usual? Is it because it's Christmas? Or maybe it's because the missing persons case she's just caught looks like a hoax from a mile off. Or is it because she's just been left a huge amount of money?
One thing's for certain: Steel's having a bad day, and she's hell-bent on making sure Constable Guthrie has one, too.

Stuart MacBride always a winner!!

Stuart is incapable of writing a bad book. His characterisations are amazing and the humour comes through every page despite the language and gross murders. Steel and Logan are the best partnership ever. Thank you Mr MacBride, Cant wait another 4 days for the next one!!!!!!!

Short story should be free

I have bought the other series but had to pay 10$ for an hour length short story. Should be free

What a rip off. Thought I was getting a novel

Ripped off. Nearly 10 dollars for a short story. Come on audible your better than that.
