A rising star in crime fiction with his second dark, gritty novel It's summertime in the Granite City: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying... It starts with Rosie Williams, a prostitute, stripped naked and beaten to death down by the docks - the heart of Aberdeen's red light district. For DS Logan McRae it's a bad start to another bad day. But Rosie Williams isn't the only one making an unscheduled trip to the morgue. Across the city, six people are burning to death in a petrol-soaked squat, the doors and windows screwed shut from the outside. And despite Logan's best efforts, it's not long before another prostitute turns up on the slab... Stuart MacBride's characteristic grittiness, gallows humor and lively characterization are to the fore, confirming his status as the rising star of crime fiction.
