Sgt. Logan McRae is back at the Granite City, Scotland police department after being out for a year with an on the job injury.

The body of a three-year-old body is found after the child had been missing for months. The slowness of the police investigation is critized and McRae is assigned to the case. When he arrives at the chid's parents home to tell them about finding the body, he finds they are distressed because the newspapers called them first and were untactful.

McRae works for a controlling, authoritative supervisor. Det. Insp. Insch is a large, bald man that McRae compares to Buddah, but not as nice. Insch also does pantomine at the local theater in his off time and tries to get his department to buy tickets to the event.

Another body is found. This time it is a girl, age five. She's been killed in a different manner and police suspect they have two child killers at work in this small community.

McRae is eminently believable and the type of character the reader can come to like and see themselves as being like if they were in the same position.

I enjoyed the book and look forward to more Sgt. Logan McRae stories in the future.
