Blind Eye - Stuart MacBride,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Logan McRae (5) - Blind Eye (Hardcover)
I've been counting down the days to the release of the next book in the DS Logan McRae series and it's been worth it. Dark, gritty, fantastic characterisation with humour that despite the horrors going on make you laugh out loud.
Once again this is fast paced but the plot flows so smoothly and is so well written that MacBride makes it all seem so effortless.
Set in the Summer this time, the plot centres around members of the Polish community coming under attack, with their eyes being gouged out and sockets burnt. Then there is a surprise when a similar attack is carried out on a victim. (Any more would be a spoiler). On top of this there are goings on with the crime lords in Aberdeen involving guns and prostitution.
Logan gets a short stay in Poland with devastating results and cracks appear as he starts to feel the effects of all he suffers both in Blind Eye and the Flesher case (which has turned him into a vegetarian).
There are lots of familiar faces in Blind Eye- I did miss Colin Miller but DI Steel made up for that!
