Stuart MacBride in his new book, “missing dead book coverThe Missing and the Dead” Book Nine in the Logan McRae series published by HarperCollins gives us another adventure with Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae.

From the back cover:  One mistake can cost you everything…

When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a ‘development opportunity’ out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire. Welcome to divisional policing – catching drug dealers, shop lifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal.

Then a little girl’s body washes up just outside the sleepy town of Banff, kicking off a massive manhunt. The Major Investigation Team is up from Aberdeen, wanting answers, and they don’t care who they trample over to get them.

Logan’s got enough on his plate keeping B Division together, but DCI Steel wants him back on her team. As his old colleagues stomp around the countryside, burning bridges, Logan gets dragged deeper and deeper into the investigation.

One thing’s clear: there are dangerous predators lurking in the wilds of Aberdeenshire, and not everyone’s going to get out of this alive…

Do not let the thickness of the book, 581 pages, deter you. I promise you once you get started you won’t even feel it. Mr. MacBride is going to make you one with the Aberdeen police department. And they seem to get involved with quite a lot of activities. Principally in this book there is the search for the child killer. Mr. MacBride has given us quite an engrossing book that will have you muttering “oh, no” as you are reading as fast as you can to get to the next page.  Don’t start this book late at night as it will cost you sleep as you try to finish it before you go to bed.
