    I mentally squealed with delight when I saw that my audiobook service had this book. Even though it was over 16 hours to listen through. But, if there is one author I can trust completely to make all those 16 hours of pure fun and bloody joy is it Stuart MacBride. And, I speed it up so...

    "The Blood Road" is Stuart McBride's eleventh detective thriller featuring Logan McRae. He has now been drafted into a senior role in Professional Standards, a role that makes his relationships with his fellow cops an uneasy one. When Detective Inspector Bell turns up dead in a cr...

    This is my favourite crime series in the world - everything about these books to my mind is perfect, not least the incredible personalities we meet. Roberta Steel will live long in legend and I'm delighted to say that she gets her time in the rain in The Blood Road. The story here is p...

    The Logan McRae series by Stuart MacBride is consistently grim, dark, bleak and littered with black humour and the 11th in the series ? The Blood Road ? follows the same tact, as McRae, now with Professional Standards, is dragged into the world of police suicides and child abductio...

    Stuart MacBride has been on my list of go-to authors for as long as I can remember. Every time there?s a new book of his on the horizon, my anticipations and expectations are sky high but I also always have faith that he?ll deliver. So of course I dropped whatever it was I was doin...

    This series is new to me but gosh, I wish I'd read the earlier ones, not because I was at sea with this (although there were times when I wondered about the back story) but because I know I missed some good reads. Logan McRae is the classic cynical policeman and now he's working for Pr...

    I love this series so much. Actually I've loved all this authors books but there's a special love involved in one featuring Logan and Steele for many many reasons... There's just no substitute anywhere in crime fiction for this pair, whether featured together or apart, in the case o...

    Starting a series at book eleven is probably not the best way to become acquainted with the characters, but despite this being my first Logan McRae book I found the characters delightfully quirky and wholly authentic. 'The Blood Road', as the name suggests has a dark theme, not rev...

    If you haven?t tried this series, you should, you really, really, should. Stuart MacBride is so on form with the latest in his Logan McRae series that you?d almost think he is enjoying himself. It is perfectly easy to dip into The Blood Road from a standing start without having ...

    When I skimmed the blurb for this book there came a point where I stopped, gave my head a shake & thought: I really should read more carefully because I?d swear it just said Logan MacRae was working for Professional Standards?.*reads again*?.Good lord, it?s true. Oooook...

    I have the beginning of this series sitting on my bookshelf waiting for me to start it. It is now on my TBR ASAP list. I thoroughly enjoyed this, the 11th in the Logan Series. DI Bell died two years ago, which makes for a confusing crime scene when DI Bell's dead body then turns up ...

    It never stops raining in Aberdeen - at least not over the few days this book covers. I'm not sure when anyone manages to dry off. And almost all the policemen and women are strange, silly, or plain stupid. Apart from the hero. It's not surprising that the general public don't have m...

    If you are a fan of the series (as I am) don't read this. And no, it isn't because of the subject matter, I couldn't care less one way or another, it just isn't a good book. Everyone is full of witty banter, everyone is clever, rank doesn't mean anything in this police force, the relat...

    Where to begin. If youre reading this youre obvisouly a massive fan. The story blends yhe usual comic humour with the darkest of deeds once again. We have the multiple plot threads which come to a boil. We have the loveable characters that MacBride has so wonderfully created. I love Lo...

    Sono soddisfatta della storia e di essere riuscita a leggerla in originale. L?inizio stato un po? difficoltoso, dovuto a una lettura un po' lenta, poich piena di acronimi inglesi, di riferimenti alla cultura pop britannica e modi di dire scozzesi. Una volta che si prende con...

    This is the 11th in what is a favourite series of mine featuring DI Logan McRae, set in Aberdeen. At this stage, we are all familiar with the style, type of content, the comic humour juxtaposed with the bleak, the multiple threads in the tale, the familiar characters in all their glory...

    My favourite series. I love Logan and his quips and the supporting characters always crack me up. On a side note, this book touched on a pretty intense topic and ultimately gave me the creeps! P.S. I feel as if I'm the only non-Steel fan ? ...

    Logan McRae is now working in Professional Standards (aka Internal Affairs in the USA). Though his new position earns him the disdain of his peers, it doesn?t stop him from solving crimes. He investigates the recent death of a DI who had killed himself two years before (it is complic...

    This book is absolutely brilliant and it goes into my top 5 books of 2018. Even though it deals with a very evil subject 'child abduction' very young children, it is full of laugh out loud moments and lots of black humour without detracting from this heinous crime. This book starts wit...

    Really enjoyed this crime thriller from Stuart Macbride. We're dealing with dark subject matter - murders, child abductions. However the narrative is lightened by the interactions between the police working the cases, many of which I found quite hilarious. A thoroughly engaging s...

    Another excellent installment in MacBride's Logan McRae series set in Scotland. A man is knifed to death........a man who turns out to be a cop who died 2 years ago. Where was he for the last 2 years ? Why did he return now ? Just who did they bury 2 years ago ? And is there some conne...

    Disturbing subject matter but saved by protagonist DI Logan McRae?s dialogue and the many quirky, oddball, strange and vulgar recurring supporting characters. Been a fan of MacBride?s for a while and anxiously awaited this new installment. DI Logan in Professional Standards was a s...

    Another brilliant read by Stuart MacBride. You almost want to sign up for the police. I said almost!! Good banter between the characters. Although there is gruesome bits in the plots, the way the police characters lighten the mood with funny banter is a coping method to what they w...
