So Logan is still out in the sticks, still running B division, still not quite having managed to finish repairs to his house. Compared to Aberdeen CID, the pace in the boondocks is frantic (is there a bigger police crisis known to man than the vending machine running out of chocolate?). Logan and his team are busy protecting the streets of Banff and Macduff and trying to prevent the Great Bacon & Cheese robbery, while also coordinating the search for a missing local businessman, a search which turns up something very unexpected in the woods. Enter stage left Steel and her Major Investigation Team including the ever odd Rennie, and the stage is set for another entertaining tale.
Throw in a Superintendent from Serious Crimes, who seems to take an instant dislike to Logan, the reason for which you won't see coming, a tragic side tale many stories in the making, a healthy dose of double crossing, the rapidly ailing Wee Hamish Mowat and Logan's new 'bestest buddy' Reuben right at his throat (guts, face, back shoulder - anything is a fair target really...) and a cameo appearance by Malk the Knife, and the few short days the story is set over may well be some of the longest in Logan's life.
Honestly, I kind of want Logan to catch a break sometime, and the guy has more lives than a cat, deftly proven again in this story several times - they don't call him Lazarus for no reason. But then again, you kind of don't want him to have it easy, as it's almost more fun that way.Read more ›
The book keeps you gripped all the way through the sad depressing moments, and Steels mishaps and comedy songs along the lines of itching and diseases!! Not going to write about the plot and be a spoilsport, but it's the best book in the Logan series for me now. Hope Stuart has a wee dram then cracks on with the next book !!
