Description

The number one best-selling detective series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride continues in this second crime thriller.

It's summertime in Scotland: the sun is shining, the sky is blue and people are dying....

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.

Rosie won't be 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....

Commentaires

" Dying Light is a wonderfully gripping and grim second outing for Logan McRae.... Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order." (Mark Billingham)

Loved it!!

This was one of my favorite books of the year. The dialogue is great and the gallows humor priceless.

Steel always steals the show

Would you listen to Dying Light again? Why?

Yes. I love the Stuart MacBride series. The books are fast paced and the characters excellently developed. I am still plowing through the series, but if I went back and reread I'd probably find things I missed the first time. Plus, although the main character is great, I'd read them all over again just for DI Steel

What other book might you compare Dying Light to and why?

This series is pretty stand out for me. I've not read such a gritty and humorous crime series like this before where I could compare it to anything else.

Any additional comments?

I see on Goodreads that people knock DI Steel, but I find her the best character. She's horrendously brazen and obtuse. She's the funniest interruption in the series and underneath all her scratching, threats and bullying her heart comes through like a beacon. I normally read though a book or a series and the characters are just that, but Steel is probably my favorite character of any books that I have read - and I AM ALWAYS listening to books. To Mr. MacBride - please don't ever kill her off as she brings a fantastic element to your series.

I Tried

Logan is the shining star of the police force. Violence, violence, violence. Logan screws up. Someone/everyone is mad at Logan or each other. Violence, violence, violence. Logan is about to get sacked. Logan feels bad. Insert Keystone Kop behavior. Logan saves the day.
IMO if the story/characters lack depth by the end of the 2nd book it’s time to move on.

Not for me

I thought the protagonist was immature and insecure, always blaming himself and apologizing. And groaning--seriously! More colorful and varied expressions of frustration would have been appreciated, but no, bloody this and bloody that. His boss in this episode was so disgusting and ever present that i could almost smell her chain smoked cigarettes. I dont do torture (violence porn), so had to do some fast forwarding.

very graphic

Follows along well with DS Macrae's antics but this one got far too graphic for me.

Disturbing descriptions of very gritty story

I did finish this Book but found I needed to fast forward through almost all of the disgusting descriptions of body decay and nasty ally ways filled with dead rats and used condoms. Not to mention the descriptions of some of the character"s physical attributes. Would I read it again NO. But I did want to see how it ended to see if I knew who most of the villains were and I did.
So good story but way to gritty for me to just enjoy. Not for the sensitive stomach turning type of reader which I seem to be.
It does not give a kind look at Scotland's police or the city of Aberdeen. So be warned read at your own risk.

Stuart MacBride brings New to Crime fiction!

Like most Ami’s, I don’t know much about some of the better European countries. Scotland is def’ly one such. Okay, Mr. MacBride’s stuff is plus-sized edgy. If you can handle the brief forays into gruesome criminal actions, the rest is the best. Logical stories, compelling characters, excellent mood and terrain (if that makes sense?) I read #10 of his McRae series first, and bought all remaining full length w/out wasting credits (they’re currently less expensive than a credit, so it makes sense to pay cc for them.) Dying Light is #2 in series and the baddies are BAD. Evil Edinburgh’s “Mac the Knife” kingpin is still only being represented by trusted thugs in Aberdeen. Two in the series down, ten (so far) to go. I plan on consuming all of them since I bought them. [if one likes interesting crime drama series, here’s a plug for Jacqueline Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs, war, crime, period piece, historical fiction. ]

Don't Waiste Your Money

Poor writing, horriable narration...I expected better from very talented Mac Bride. A high school student could write better.

Very Disappointing

I try to avoid being negative, but am very disappointed with the 2nd Logan McRea novel. My problem comes from the language which seems to be one long run of curses and constant use of the "F" word. There may be people somewhere who talk like this, but I have never met any of them. It just distracts from the story when every sentence of dialogue is loaded with foul language.
Sadly I think I am finished with Logan McRae. There are too many other novels to choose from.

Happy to have found a new series to listen to

What did you love best about Dying Light?

Logan McRae is a talented, well intentioned policeman who seems to manage to not quite stuff things up.

What about Steve Worsley’s performance did you like?

Easy-to-listen-to scottish accent. Good with voices.
