Publisher's Summary

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....

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Once you start you cannot stop"

    Logan McRae is so human, clever and flawed in equal measure. This is not an easy listen in places but has a good conclusion and I look forward to the next audio offering.

    "Really good second novel"

    Sometimes with series of books I find the first one excellent so really look forward to reading the next one and it ends up being a bit of a disappointment, but not this one, certainly not!! Some more than gory bits if you don’t like that sort of thing, and a couple of times I could’ve slapped one or two of the protagonists because their behaviour seems way out of line, but as a whole I liked most of the police officers and some really nice hissy villains. And some quite funny bits.

    A darn good “read” and looking forward to number 3!!

    Superb thriller. And wonderfully balanced with dark cynical humour. Tension throughout to the last page.

    "A talented writer"

    The this book is grim in parts but I didn't find it off putting. The plot is interesting, the main character is likeable and believable and the book is well paced. The narrator is very good and I will certainly listen to more books in this series.

    "Another Gripping Logan Lazarus McCrea book."

    I'm an addicted fan of Stuart McBrides police novels. They're compulsive listening. I get lost in his characters and the plots he guides us through.

    "another great novel from macbride"

    I enjoyed this story immensely, 3 different story lines linked and muddled together made a twisting novel yet easy to follow. As much as I love Logan as a main character, it surprised me that every time an officer got hurt because of him... he was only bothered about the enquiry that would follow and himself... never showed any guilt about the officers!

    "Bit too gruesome for my taste"

    An involving listen. However some of the descriptions of violence were pretty stomach turning. Personally I'd have enjoyed the book more without the really graphic violence. It does show the skill of the narrator and writer that I hit the mute button when listening and eating.

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

    Story
    "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.
