Broken Skin Summary


Broken Skin (Logan McRae, Book 3) by Stuart MacBride

A new Logan McRae thriller from the bestselling author of 'Cold Granite' and 'Dying Light', set in gritty Aberdeen. In the pale grey light of a chilly February, Aberdeen is not at its best! There's a rapist prowling the city's cold granite streets, leaving a string of tortured women behind. But while DS Logan McRae's girlfriend is out acting as bait, he's dealing with the blood-drenched body of an unidentified male, dumped outside Accident and Emergency. When a stash of explicit films turn up, all featuring the victim, it looks as if someone in the local bondage community has developed a taste for violent death, and Logan gets dragged into the twilight world of pornographers, sex-shops and S&M. To make matters worse, when they finally arrest the Granite City Rapist, Grampian Police are forced by the courts to let him go: Aberdeen Football Club's star striker has an alibi for every attack. Could they really have got it so badly wrong? Logan thinks so, but the trick will be getting anyone to listen before the real rapist strikes again. Especially as his girlfriend, PC Jackie 'Ball Breaker' Watson, is convinced the footballer is guilty and she's hell-bent on a conviction at any cost...

Broken Skin Reviews


'Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order by a writer whose dark star is most definitely on the rise.' Mark Billingham 'If you're looking for taut narrative, gut-churning incident, strong characterisation, all shot through with savagely dark humour, then look no further' Reginald Hill Praise for 'Dying Light': 'Another brilliant, riveting police procedural from the new kid on the block. I'm green with envy!' R D Wingfield Praise for 'Cold Granite': 'Ferocious and funny, this is Tartan Noir at its best.' Val McDermid 'A riveting and gruesome debut.' Telegraph 'This intelligent, exciting police procedural should make the leading writers of the genre start looking over their shoulders.' Sunday Telegraph 'Stuart MacBride goes straight for the jugular with a tight, thrilling novel.' Glasgow Herald 'An impressive debut ! an edge-of-your-seat page-turner.' Publishers Weekly 'A cracking new writer on the crime scene who hooks you from the first page and never lets you go. The action is ferocious and the pace unrelenting.' Northern Echo Praise for Cold Granite: 'MacBride is a confident writer ! does a good line in black humour and has a nose for the macabre. A promising debut' Scotsman

About Stuart MacBride


Stuart MacBride has gone from asking people if they 'want fries with that' to project-managing vast IT projects for the oil industry. Somewhere in the middle he managed to make money out of dressing up as a woman, doing voiceovers, graphic design, working offshore, and very boring things involving websites. He failed the interview to become a funeral director. His first book, 'Cold Granite was shortlisted for the International Thriller Writers' best debut novel and won the Barry Award for best first novel. The follow-up, 'Dying Light', became an instant top-ten bestseller. Both books feature DS Logan McRae. Stuart lives in north-east Scotland with his wife Fiona, cat Grendel, and a vegetable plot full of weeds.
