Description

The fourth thriller in the number one best-selling crime series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. Panic grips the Granite City as DS Logan McRae heads up a manhunt for 'The Flesher' - one of the UK's most notorious serial killers.

The case was closed. Until the killer walked free....

When an offshore container turns up at Aberdeen Harbour full of human meat, it kicks off the largest manhunt in the Granite City's history.

Twenty years ago 'The Flesher' was butchering people all over the UK - turning victims into oven-ready joints - until Grampian's finest put him away. But 11 years later he was out on appeal. Now he's missing, and people are dying again.

When members of the original investigation start to disappear, Detective Sergeant Logan McRae realises the case might not be as clear cut as everyone thinks....

Twenty years of secrets and lies are being dragged into the light. And the only thing that's certain is that Aberdeen will never be the same again.

To Gruesom For Me

You’re about to enter a world of cannibalism, seasoned with a dash of pedophilia. Almost too much for me but that may be a cultural sensitivity. After all, the Scots eat haggis so it would take something of much greater magnitude to raise an eyebrow. And, this takes cannibalism up a gear.
Compared to the previous books in the series, this one picks up the pace a little and focuses more on the main plot than the side issues. It still suffers from undeveloped characters defined only by a few of their quirks, ad nauseam. And, the principal antagonist doesn’t come on stage until late in the book, adding a touch of a pulling-the-rabbit-out-of-the-hat conclusion.

But, the decent pace of the action makes this a more readable book than previous offerings. If, you can tolerate the gore.

Great writing, but the story is too gory for me

Stuart MacBride is a very skilled and engaging author who makes readers genuinely care about his characters. I really like how he plays with stereotypes and cliches by turning them around in unexpected ways. Unfortunately, this story line was just too gory for me. :(

If you like violence

I really enjoyed the unfolding of the mystery but I did not like the last few chapters. Gross is gross, though I can't think of an ending with swift finesse. The characters are good, the funny quips fly, the tensions are non stop and I still enjoy this series a lot!

A bit (!) gory but excellent

Despite the difficulty listening to this because it was so gory, this was a great book. Edge of the chair good. But I couldn't listen in bed. It wasn't what I wanted to think about as I fell asleep.

I love the characters. I love the narration. And I love MacBride's writing. The ending of this was amazing!

Very bloody

Every murder & dismemberment — and there are too many — described in excruciating and exhausting detail. Book required heavy editing.

Great series!

Very well written and what a cast of characters. The narrator is perfect for this series and does a great job with men and women"s voices, drunks, different accents/dialects, children,.etc.! The stories take you through a variety of emotions. In-between horrific killings, and the banter and interactions between the main characters, including imitations of a ringing phone, "brrriiing", "click" a bunch of times, make me laugh and shake my head a lot. I'm on to the next book in the series

Another grusome page turner

Another grusome page turner from Stuart MacBride with enough twists and turns to hold your interest. Narrator Steve Worsley seems to suit the characters he describes well.

Best Yet

I'm reading the Logan McRae books in order and I've read three other Stuart MacBride books. This is the best Logan McRae book so far, second only to the standalone book "A Dark So Deadly".

Too gory and disturbing, but so funny at the same time

Awful and wonderful all at the same time. Such a wonderful performance by the narrator. How can it be so funny and also so disturbing? Kind of wish I hadn’t listened to it, but yet...

Thinking of Becoming a Vegetarian? Read This Book.

If Hannibal Lector had a deeply disturbed child, this book's suspect is it.

This is my fourth Logan McRae read. I like the character. He is determined, smart and very under-appreciated. The murderer in this book is quite proficient. Body parts cropping up in the food chain. The author is great at describing the truly horrible outcome of people bits being packaged with other meats.

But it just went on and on. I finished the book, hoping for some break In the gore. Nope. All the way to the end.

I'll read more by this author. He's very clever. But this book was simply too disturbing to enjoy..
