Stuart MacBride is one of the leading lights of Scottish crime fiction, renowned for his realism and tightly plotted, strikingly gritty police procedurals, the Logan MacRae and Ash Henderson serials. Now he has put his talents to use in producing a spectacular standalone thriller, A Dark So Deadly.
With all the wit, grit, and pace of his previous works, A Dark So Deadly takes us into the world of down-and-out DC MacGregor, a detective on the path to nowhere, when he is charged with investigating the theft of a mummy. What starts as a mundane case for a middle of the road officer quickly morphs into something far more deadly. For DC MacGregor and the rest of the ‘Misfit Mob’, it’s sink or swim as the threat of a serial killer on the hunt for their next victim looms…
Stuart is not only a true crime fiction stalwart but a thoroughly entertaining, engaging speaker. We’re thrilled to welcome him to the bookshop – this promises to be a fantastic, darkly funny evening.
‘The McRae books sport some of the pithiest snapshots of modern urban life this side of Irvine Welsh, and the plotting has a cohesion that puts most writers in the genre to shame.‘ – The Independent
