    A novel starring DS Roberta Steel? Can that really work? I mean I like her, she is a great character in the Logan McRae series. But, can she really front her own own book? Oh yes, she can! If you have read any of Stuart MacBride's books, then you already know he's a terrific writer,...

    I received this book from Good Reads. "No 1 Times Bestseller". I thought I was in for a good read, as I love detective stories, but I did not enjoy this one. I did read quite a bit of it, hoping my opinion would change, but it did not, so in the end I gave up on it. Too much trying...

    If the question is how do you write tartan noir inspired by classic children's books and come up with an absolute belter, the answer is Now We Are Dead. Good job and thank you Mr MacBride. ...

    I?m a huge fan of the Logan McRea books, and having this one focus on the recently demoted Roberta Steel was brilliant as she is one of my faves characters in Crime Fiction. Steel and Tufty are after a very nasty man who?s doing unspeakable things outside peoples houses whilst we...

    My favourite offering from Stuart McBride so far, from the winnie the pooh opening to the doodles of Tufty at the end, this was an entertaining read of one of my favourite characters of his. Sure it was farcical in parts but it helped lift the heaviness of the storyline and just suited...

    A shorter-than-usual novel, a spin-off from the Logan McRae series, but just as gripping. I (unfortunately) was up to 1:30 a.m. reading it on a night I couldn't afford that. McRae, now an inspector with Professional Standards, makes a couple of cameos, but the protagonists are Detectiv...

    The fans of Stuart McBride's Logan McRae series will certainly recognize DS Roberta Steel is this standalone spinoff. DS Roberta Steel ... .she's a rather unique character. She's rude to the point of being obnoxious to everyone. She's definitely no lady by any stretch of the imagina...

    The presentation of this book is some sort of tribute to A A Milne and comic book add-ons did little to enhance the story. Roberta Steele has been demoted to Sergeant and is back chasing shop lifters and other petty criminals while still seeking to catch the rapist Jack Wallace and bri...

    Roberta Steele has been demoted after attempting to stitch up a suspect in this spin off from the excellent Logan McRae series. Roberta's not happy and she makes sure that everyone knows it. Roberta knows who the guilty party is and she won't rest until she gets her man. If you enjo...

    I so love this author, and he never lets me down. Following on from the last book, Steel has been demoted after trying to fit up Jack Wallace. He's still a raping scumbag in her words, and she's determined that she's going to prove it, even though there's a good chance it will finish h...

    This is described as "Logan McRae 10.5" and it picks up the story of Roberta post-demotion (you do need to have read the others for this, I think). It's full of farce and very funny (I get so much more out of this now that I know what "sharny" means ...) The title, and the opening scen...

    Is there a single detective anywhere created in fiction who could outdo Roberta Steel? No is what I say ? she is (subjectively) the single most entertaining and cleverly written police protagonist on the block. All the blocks. In my humble opinion anyway ? therefore a book from the...

    3.5 stars Oh man?this is a tough one. First let me say I?m a huge fan of this author. HUGE. When I see a new book of his on the horizon, I break out the happy dance. And immediately begin plotting how to make it mine. I?ve read all the Logan McRae & Ash Henderson books ...

    Gave up around the 60/70 page mark. I didnt like Roberta Steel as a main character. Felt weird. I think for me she will always be a sidekick who pops in with her humour once in a while. ...

    Roberta Steele has been demoted from DCI to Sergeant because she was caught planting evidence on a suspected rapist. She is obsessed with proving his guilt and she has been warned to stay away from him. She is on the edge of being fired. But she can?t stop going after him. She has no...

    Stuart MacBride is a genius. This book is pure brilliance. MacBride is a wordsmith who sits up there with the greatest. Even though this story deals with the heinous crimes of rape and brutality of money lenders there is still humour and lots of it. The use of this black humour which i...

    Any book which can incorporate my most favourite not-a-swear-word, fudgemonkeys, is always going to make me chuckle. Any book which combines the aforementioned not-a-swear-word and the irrepressible Roberta Steel ? well you are pretty much guaranteed a cover to cover chucklefest of t...

    I really liked this one-such good dialogue with lots of humour thrown in. Logan Macrae does not really appear but does not detract in my opinion. Roberta Steel and Tufty are brilliant! ...

    I won this book in a Facebook competition. I love reading the Logan McRae series of books and was intrigued to discover this one was mainly about D S Roberta Steel. I loved the format of the book, based on Winnie-the-Poo, and the mind-map drawings. In a lot of ways Steel is based o...

    Super! I didn't think at first that this book would work so well without Logan but Tufty saved the day and became a worthy foil for Steele! I've read all Stuart's books at least twice and this one will be no exception! ...

    Thank you to Goodreads for the chance to read this book, the line on the back cover that says "She can't prove he did it..but she might die trying" pulls you into the story but gives no hint of the humour contained within. "Now we are dead" is the funniest book I've read this year but...

    Fudge Flavoured Wombles in Tartan Noir The odd thing is that I didn't give this book the best chance because I was in a foul mood when I started listening to it. Half an hour later my troubles were forgotten. This is a gloriously entertaining piece of Tartan Noir from Stuart McBride...
