A brilliantly twisty, 80-page novella from the number-one best-selling author of the Logan McRae series. Including an extract from his new Logan novel, The Missing and the Dead.
It's the night of the big Referendum, and all Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae has to do is find a missing ‘No' campaigner. Should be easy enough.... But, as usual, DCI Steel has plans of her own.
As the votes are counted, there's trouble brewing in the pubs and on the streets of Aberdeen. Logan's picked up a promising lead, but all is not quite what it seems, and things are about to go very, very wrong....
Praise for Stuart MacBride:
“New Logan McRae novels are close to the top of my unmissable list, and yet again MacBride delivers. His chaotic cop hero is at his best. Superb storytelling.” (Sun)
“Another from MacBride's fantastic series of Logan McRae novels. A real page-turner.” (Sunday Mirror)
“Stuart's meticulous research shows. At times it feels like you are sitting in the back of a police car overhearing conversations between real policemen.” (Sunday Sport)
“Another riveting page-turner...emotional and affecting.” (Independent on Sunday)
“Skilful storytelling...strong characterization...both intriguing and engrossing.” (Laura Wilson, Guardian)
“The multiple plots move fast.” (Independent)
“MacBride is the natural heir to the late and much lamented Reginald Hill.” (Andrew Taylor, Spectator)
“MacBride is a damned fine writer - no one does dark and gritty like him.” (Peter James)
“Fierce, unflinching and shot through with the blackest of humour; this is crime fiction of the highest order.” (Mark Billingham)
“Some of the grittiest crime-writing in the field.” (Independent)
“Admirers of tough, modern crime novels will be in seventh heaven - or should that be hell?” (Express)
“Ferocious and funny.” (Val McDermid)
“Hard-hitting prose with a bone-dry humour and characters you can genuinely believe in, Stuart MacBride's novels are a real treat.” (Simon Kernick)

A completely hysterical joy to listen to
I laughed very, very hard. Some of the images will be as hard for me to get out of my mind as they were for Logan and Roberta to get out of theirs, but I think that's the point! Oh please write faster, Mr. MacBride! I need more of these unforgettable characters. Steve Worsley's voicing of Roberta Steel is certainly a lifetime achievement.
Thanks to all for a thoroughly satisfying experience.
