Summary

DS Logan McRae and the police in Aberdeen hunt a child killer who stalks the frozen streets. Winter in Aberdeen: murder, mayhem and terrible weather!

It's DS Logan McRae's first day back on the job after a year off on the sick, and it couldn't get much worse. Four-year-old David Reid's body is discovered in a ditch, strangled, mutilated and a long time dead. And he's only the first. There's a serial killer stalking the Granite City and the local media are baying for blood.

Soon the dead are piling up in the morgue almost as fast as the snow on the streets, and Logan knows time is running out. More children are going missing. More are going to die. And if Logan isn't careful, he could end up joining them!

Jenny (diggensjenny) Cold Granite was the book that I fell in love with this series and the characters. Especially DS Logan McRae. Stuart MacBride is a fantastic writer with the way he ensures that I can laugh with the way he incorporates and portrays his characters throughout Cold Granite.


Linda (beaulieulinda117gmailcom) | 1238 comments I had to forego this series as I'm working on four others. This is definitely on my to read list.

Mine too Linda!

Unfortunately I have to read books for my physical monthly book club get-togethers (3) before delving into other books.....but I do hope to get to this one this summer 😉

Happy reading to all!


Jenny (diggensjenny) Icewineanne and Linda, I hope you do get to read this book and enjoy this fantastic series.

Pam (pammykn) | 31 comments I do want to read this one ... just in a crunch right now with too many books way too little time. I do intend to read later. I have read another book by him under a pseudonym and really liked it.

Christina Phillips | 1 comments I just finished the book. There were so many moving parts I had to take my time with it. I really enjoyed it. Kept me guessing until the end.


Jenny (diggensjenny) I agree with you, Christina. I love the way, Stuart MacBride can incorporate laughter into his plots.


Beth Buning | 25 comments I really did enjoy this one. Would love to visit Scotland in spite of the not so glowing reviews of weather!
