A DIFFERENT DIRECTION FOR MACBRIDE...............................,
This review is from: Halfhead (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I admit to being a huge fan of Mr MacBride. In this one he leaves my native Aberdeen and moves to the future in Glasgow. There is still the odd merry quip when he introduces the characters speaking in dialect, but somehow there is something missing.
I admit that I am not a fan of sci-fi and in all fairness this book is not over the top, but I found it just did not hit the spot. It was overly simple.
He attempts to be gruesome but it did not shake me at all.
It is a good read, I do not deny, but he is much happier in Aberdeen with Logan MacRae and D.I. Steele. He should stick to straightforward crime.
