CHOICE BOOKS IN THE COLD [...].

CHOICE BOOKS IN THE COLD DARK GROUND Stuart MacBride Harper. Out now It's ten years since the debut of Sgt Logan Macrae, the heroic policeman whose adventures in the murky Aberdeen crime scene have kept his creator at the top of the bestseller charts. MacBride's trademarks - ribald humour and the authentic detail of the grind of police work are much in evidence, but there's plenty of drama as, while investigating a gangland style killing, Logan is dragged into a trap. There's also his girlfriend Samantha, who speaks to him daily, despite having been in a coma for two years, adding poignancy to fast moving action. With skillful storytelling, it adds up to a satisfyingly chunky, compelling thriller. DEIRDRE O'BRIEN
