It s raining it s pouring The old man is snoringHe bumped his head and went to bedAnd couldn t get up in the morning English nursery rhymeDetective Sergeant Logan MacRae could only wish for such a case But no His very first day back on the job after a year of sick leave after being stabbed while on duty is uite grim Stuart McBride s debut novel of the Logan MacRae series begins with Aberdeen police at the scene of a grisly discovery a young boy s strangled mutilated body lying in a ditch The poor wee sod was only three years old It s not long before it s raining missing and dead childrenIt s been a hot humid August in Minnesota and there s nothing like a cold wet thriller to chill me to the bone Cold Granite certainly fits the bill Aberdeen the third largest city in Scotland is known as the Granite City and statistically is the coldest city in the UK I love a thriller where the weather almost becomes another character and Mr McBride certainly manages to make Mother Nature a key figure If it s not raining it s miserably damp and misty If it s not doing either of those it s snowingWhat is most chilling of course is the work of the serial killer But is there really only one killer That s what Logan and his team must learn The victims are all uite young but there are differences between them and things that don t add up Reading about a child abuser was not really what I had in mind when I was looking for a break from the summer heat but McBride manages to skirt around some of the nastiest details In addition he throws in a second case It s supposed to be DI Steele s case but she manages to pass it on to him and he ends up trying to solve the murder of a guy who ended up in the drink with his kneecaps hacked off Entertainment at its best There are twists and turns some of which are predictable but a few wrinkles surprised me The characters are superb DI Insch Logan s boss is a gruff guy with a sweet tooth Man I hope that guy has a good dentist a good endocrinologist and excellent insurance Every time MacRae was around him Insch was popping some kind of candy into his mouth and offering him a piece too Then there s the aforementioned Steele What a tough cookie she is And I can t forget Constable Jackie Watson AKA Ball Breaker I loved her Those are just the cops We also see a lot of Colin Miller the newspaper fella with no scruples and Isobel MacAlister the pathologist Logan used to date another source of ice in this tale We don t get much background but the temperature drops every time the two are anywhere near each other Stuart McBride s characters are flawed funny and so much fun to read His witnesses suspects and killers are very well written also The writing is excellent I so enjoyed the Scottish isms and the bits of humor Don t get me wrong Cold Granite is serious stuff and much of it is really not meant to be read at the breakfast table But if you ve got a strong stomach you may very well find it to be your cup of tea They drink a lot of tea in this book and plenty of stronger stuff too I can t wait to read of this series By the way I read Mr McBride s Goodread s bio It s great for a than a few chuckles Thanks Chris for your recommendation It won t be long before I m on to Dying Light 45 stars

This is the first novel featuring Detective Sergeant Logan McRae who is a very human and flawed character When we meet him he has been off work for a year after being seriously knifed in the stomach We also learn that whatever happened on the day he was injured resulted in his losing his relationship with pathologist Dr Isobel MacAlister This is unfortunate as their paths will cross many times in this book In fact almost as soon as McRae returns to work the crime rate is about to soarThis is a gritty and hard hitting novel involving two different investigations which somehow merge along the way The first involves the fact that little boys are being abducted and killed The second concerns the murder of a gangster who has ended up in the river minus his kneecaps Thrown into the deep end McRae finds himself trying to solve the crimes stay warm which doesn t sound easy in the portrait the author paints of a freezing Aberdeen and try to discover who is leaking information to the press There are some fantastic characters DI Insch with his constant munching of sweets slimy journalist Colin Miller possible future love interest WPC Watson and that isn t even mentioning the criminals encountered Stuart MacBride manages to tie in several storylines in a believable way has great dialogue and a fast moving plot I look forward to following this series

Dead things had always been special to him Their delicate coldness The feel of the skin The ripe sweet smell as they decayed As they returned to God Detective Logan McRae comes back to work after months of recovery from a savage knife attack from a suspect which left him severely wounded His stomach is a mass of scar tissue His mental state is reasonably stable considering that scars on the body tend to leave scars on the mind as well He works for the Aberdeen police department located in the Scottish Highlands The weather is wet and windy and because it is wet the granite hills surrounding Aberdeen seem even desolate to the eye and because it is windy the cold chills the body to the bone It all begins barely before McRae can warm a seat at the station with the discovery of a dead child Then another Then another child goes missing The window for a live recovery of a child taken is a very small amount of time and McRae soon finds himself in a pressure cooker to find something anything that will put him on the right trail He also has another case involving an adult male He has a pretty good idea which of the local heavies has thrown this grotesue artwork into the water but he needs some evidence to tie the bastards to the crime And no kneecaps Both hairy legs had ragged holes in them where a normal person would keep their knees The flesh was torn and tattered around the joint yellow bone poking through the mess of hacked up tissue Whoever had done this hadn t been bothered about making a tidy job of it This was unelective surgery by enthusiasm rather than skill As if Logan McCrae s life isn t difficult enough in walks Colin Miller local reporter who has information that will help him with his case The only problem is Miller is ambitious and wants a uid pro uo The type of information that will jam McCrae up with his pocket full of sweets boss DI Insch the inspector who had discovered an open packet of winegums in his overcoat and was busily picking off the little bits of fluff and pocket grit Ahh yes do be careful about the tuffs of lint when accepting a piece of candy from DI Insch Another complication for McCrae is watching his ex girlfriend the medical examiner walking around like God s gift to all mankind Isobel MacAlister turned up looking as if she d just stepped off a catwalk long Burberry raincoat dark green trouser suit cream high collared blouse delicate pearl earrings her short hair artistically tousled Wellington boots three sizes too big for her She looked so good it hurt A further problem is if McRae and the team can not make progress soon the professionals from down south will be up both their nostrils If we don t watch out Edinburgh are going to take over And we ll all end up looking like sheep shagging small town halfwits Needless to say all of these elements increase the pressure on an inspector who is trying to shake the rust off before one of his mistakes costs a child his life The people populating this novel are refreshingly not PC The setting is damp and cold adding hindrances to an already complicated investigation There is a defense attorney who is loathed by everyone but his clients The police officers refer to him as Sandy the Snake or Hissing Sid and much worse The press through the manipulations of Miller are creating havoc with the direction of the investigation There are also vigilantes just to add some extra curry to the mix who are deciding who is guilty The uestion is can McRae set aside the myriad of distractions and focus on the slender stack of clues Can he catch the killer before another young child is taken I m definitely continuing with the series The bungling the luck the exploration of human weakness and the intuitive deductions give this series a feel of a real life human drama The setting in cold granite Aberdeen certainly adds some fascinating elements to the plot Stuart McBride is creatively descriptive of rather grotesue situations so a word of caution for those who like their mysteries softboiled rather than gritty and of the Scotch egg variety If you wish to see of my most recent book and movie reviews visit also have a Facebook blogger page at
