The Logan McRae Novels. They always say, write what you know so I did – using Aberdeen as the backdrop for a series of horrific crimes, murders, serial killers, and much eating of chips and drinking of beer. Of these, the only ones I have any direct experience of are beer and chips, but some nice local police officers helped me fill in the rest

Dying Light (Stuart McBride) review—April 24, 2018

4.5 (rounded to 4)

Poor DS Logan McRae. Because of consequences from his last case he has been re-assigned from DI Insch’s team to DI Steel’s team. The Screw Up Squad. DI Steel knows this is her chance to shine if she plays her cards right as she knows Logan is actually a good copper. DI Steel is different. Let’s just say she’s a little…uh, unorthodox.

Logan is not a perfect guy. Far from it. But he has integrity (sort of) and is a tireless investigator (thanks to his inability to ignore the phone when DI Steel calls him relentlessly on his days off). I guess the term would be incessantly tired rather than tireless. But yes, he’s a good copper. I like him. A lot.

This book has a ton of characters, and I admit, I had to utilize the search button a number of times to keep everyone straight. Not sure whether that’s Mr. McBride’s fault or mine for getting old. A little of both, perhaps. I enjoyed the gross DI Steel. She is a character that is unique from any other cop I’ve run across in my readings. But I also love DI Insch with his unending supply of interesting British candy treats. I can’t decide whose team I want Logan to end up on. I am liking his shacking up with Ball Breaker WPC Jackie Watson and his partnership with DC Rennie.

Some reviewers have called this book too long. Too full of banter. Geez, I loved the banter. I can’t tell you how many times I laughed out loud while reading this book. Mr. McBride has a great way of instilling a laughable moment just at the right time.

Despite it being summertime in Scotland, Mr. McBride continues to paint a bleak dreary picture of Aberdeen. Thanks, Mr. McBride, for warning me to never save a spot on my bucket list for a visit to your fair city.

Speaking of bleak, a warning to those who are not keen on graphic descriptions of the baddies’ deeds. You may want to have skim mode ready to go or even skip this book altogether.

There are numerous little plot-lets to keep in mind. I really should have taken notes, but I’m too lazy for that. We are dealing with murder after murder, torture, drug issues, firebombs, prostitution, fractured family relationships, dicey police decisions, and more. The impressive maze of plot-lets finally comes together though in a bang up ending. That was exciting! I did like the fact that the plot pieces are wrapped up nicely though the personal relationships and fates of some of the characters are left hanging a bit, enticing readers like me to continue on with the series. If it weren’t for the fact that one of my very favorite writers just made a new book available, I would be moving on to book 3 right now.

I’m getting tougher in my ratings this year. Last year this 4.5 rating would have been rounded to 5.0.

The DS Logan McRae series is in the high quality tier of crime fiction. I am sure I will work my way through all eleven books and jump on any others that follow. I hoping this will be one of those iconic 20-book runs. Thanks, Mr. McBride, for giving us Logan McRae and his gang.

THIS ONE, book two in the "Logan McRae" series, "Dying Light", has more twists and turns than a Boston, Massachusetts residential district! SUCH a joy to be safe and sound within the elegant, descriptive, often downright funny, but never overwrought prose of this master story-teller! Mr. McBRide does not rest on his laurels. Having written one brilliant book (the first in the series), he, if anything TOPS himself. And, his writing does not condescend. Does not lag, waiting for us to catch up or, worse, laying things out on a platter. He trusts that we are "with" him, and we are! Again, a plethora of fascinating multi-note characters, heroes, pariahs and criminals, alike. AND, the distracting nicknames are toned down, as are a colleagues previously over-mentioned habit of eating treats. MUCH more focus here, if that's possible. As well as a multitude of seemingly disparate cases all connecting up in the end. HOW DOES HE DO THAT? I cannot recommend the reading of this "Logan" series enough, without resorting to the kind of over-the-top prose Mr. McBRide so deftly avoids. This author is a born story-teller, but now, as a matured master of the form, he constantly surprises as often as he delights. Note: DI Steel is HILARIOUS! An hilarious incompetent! And, Stuart Macbride's numerous inclusions of kick-ass female detectives is a special, unexpected joy! READ this man. ENTER his stories! He wisely, and without hyperbole, invites you in then, trusting that you're in there WiTH him, then he wisely challenges you, intelligently, to make the kinds of connections his main subject, Logan McRae, is attempting, and succeeding, to make. But, there are no tricks! No evidence is withheld. Even late-in-book surprises are set up and EARNED. This is INCREDIBLY immersive reading. SO GET TO IT! I am directly off to being invited into book three of the series. Come with me! I, for one, cannot WAIT!

Police procedural, not as good as his first Logan McRae book but still quite good. I figured out some of it long before the book ended (I mean, some of it was pretty obvious). He did some stupid, arrogant things that let to stomach-turning violence. But what I would really like is for a police procedural to be written where Our Hero wasn't also fighting his department along with criminals -- that part of the tale is so boring (unless maybe you can identify with it if you're a cop -- I'm not, so the Hero-Against-the-Powers-that-Be subplots were just boring). I'm looking forward to reading the next one in the series. The ending, though, was rushed, just seemed like it happened all at once, like some kind of word limit had been reached. After going through the excruciating parts, I wanted more of a payoff.

DI Logan McRae is in disgrace after a police raid went wrong and one of his squad was shot and left in a coma on life support. He's being internally investigated by Professional Standards and demoted to the "Screw-Up Squad" headed by DI Steel. In the mean time, he's got enough to worry about with prostitutes being mutilated and killed and an arsonist setting fire to random buildings.

I enjoy this crime series set in Aberdeen, the granite city. That somehow makes the stories more grim and gritty, even if it is currently summertime and it's not always raining. There is a dark, ironic humour through the book that works well with the characters and location. DI Steel is not your typical DI and works in very different ways to Logan and his previous boss DI Insch. This makes for an edginess in their interactions as Logan tries to fit in with Steel's commands but also follow his own intuition.

Overall, an excellent second book in the series and I'm already looking forward to the next one.
