I love Stuart MacBride and both the Logan McRae and Ash Henderson series. This one is about Roberta Steel, after having been demoted to a DS, working without her sidekick, Laz.
I love this quirky character. In this one we get to know her a bit better and find that she can actually work and is more passionate about her job than we've previously seen.
What I like about MacBride's novels is that while they often have violence, the books have a lot of humour and great characters. This one has all that...but the violence in this one turned me off...sad and sickening. While the bad guys get their comeuppance in the end, many of us just aren't used to the type of crimes committed in this story.
