A taste for the gruesome
TO begin with, this is not for the faint- hearted. Nor is it a Miss Marple/ Midsomer Murders style of British crime story.
It’s dark and gruesome.
Set in and around Aberdeen, this is the fourth instalment of the Logan McRae series.
But you don’t need to read the others to pick up the story or characters as you can find your way easily enough.
Flesh House hinges on a past and a present crime spree. The police thought they put a serial killer away 20 years ago; a man who killed and dismembered his victims and then left a little something in the freezer.
When he’s released and the crimes start up again, there are more unanswered questions than ever – and they don’t point back to the same suspect.
Flesh House takes in the vulnerable aspects of policing that we don’t often see: how the police cope individually and how the job affects their families. And then it will scare the pants off of you. I repeat it’s not for those of a mild disposition, especially when you see how easily our food chain can be compromised.
Having said that, if you love your Scottish authors and their grisly tales, Stuart MacBride is not to be missed. Get your discounted copy of Flesh House using the coupon below.
