Back on Track
on 7 January 2011
Aberdeen is the setting for this tale about the kidnapping of rising talent show stars Alison & her daughter Jenny McGregor. The investigation by DS Logan McRae and his colleagues at Grampian Police takes twists and turns as the media and the public demand action. The public attempt to raise the ransom while the race is on to beat deadlines laid down by the kidnappers.
I have to say I have read all of Stuart MacBride's books since his debut novel 'Cold Granite' which also featured Logan McRae, so had pre-ordered 'Shatter the Bones'. This was the 7th book in the series.
I have to be honest and state I had in fact approached this latest book with a certain amount of trepidation - having thoroughly enjoyed a number of the previous books by the author, I had felt he had gone off track a little and the levels of profanity seemed to go off the scale.
He is certainly back on track with this book. I read it in one day and couldn't put it down. A gripping tale interlaced with humour giving an unusual mix.
If you haven't read any Stuart MacBride novels before and enjoy a good police/thriller read - buy this, you won't be disappointed.
