Review: IN THE COLD, DARK GROUND, Stuart MacBride

In the Cold Dark Ground, by Stuart MacBride. Review by Barbara Copperthwaite
“MacBride makes other police procedural novels look po-faced”



The new Logan McRae novel from the No. 1 bestselling author of THE MISSING AND THE DEAD and A SONG FOR THE DYING.

Sergeant Logan McRae is in trouble…

His missing-persons investigation has just turned up a body in the woods – naked, hands tied behind its back, and a bin bag duct-taped over its head. The Major Investigation Team charges up from Aberdeen, under the beady eye of Logan’s ex-boss Detective Chief Inspector Steel. And, as usual, she wants him to do her job for her.

But it’s not going to be easy: a new Superintendent is on her way up from the Serious Organised Crime Task Force, hell-bent on making Logan’s life miserable; Professional Standards are gunning for Steel; and Wee Hamish Mowat, head of Aberdeen’s criminal underbelly, is dying – leaving rival gangs from all over the UK eyeing his territory.

There’s a war brewing and Logan’s trapped right in the middle, whether he likes it or not.


Possibly the unluckiest police sergeant in the world, Logan McRae, is back in his tenth book. A gang war is threatening to break out, but looks almost civilised compared to Logan personal life. Will he have the guts…TO READ IN FULL, CLICK HERE
