Detective Inspector McRae is finally getting back on his feet after the events of the last few years. But it was never going to last. Bodies are turning up on the outskirts of Aberdeen - burned from the neck up, hands chained behind their backs. The similarities between the real-life killings and the plot from a bestselling novel about witchcraft seem more than coincidental, but the more Logan digs the more dangerous and blurred the line between fact and fiction becomes.

My first gripe with Macbride is why he took so long to get back to the McRae series!

Thankfully, the wait has been mostly worth the visit. The story starts out well enough but it sags in the middle and gets more disappointing towards the end. But the supporting cast of characters makes up for that.

Steel is in top, whining form, and her jokes are funny but Macbride's continued use of her whinging gets a bit grating. McRae himself is not above his own whines, which is rich given how many times he has a go at Rennie...

Still, a good read filled with dark, sarcastic humour!
