- 5+ in stock
Another slice of hard-edged Tartan Noir from the esteemed MacBride and his Aberdeen detective, Logan Macrae. The simmering tensions behind the Scottish referendum debate break out into the open when a prominent pro-Union campaigner vanishes in suspicious circumstances. Written with intelligence, grit and urgency, All That’s Dead is an uncompromising thriller of the top rank.
A dark night in the isolated Scottish countryside. Nicholas Wilson, a prominent professor known for his divisive social media rants, leaves the house with his dog, as he does every night. But this time he doesn't come back...
The last thing Inspector Logan McRae wants is to take on such a high-profile case. But when a second man vanishes in similar circumstances, the media turns its merciless gaze on him, and he has no choice.
Then body parts start arriving in the post. Someone out there is trying to make a point, and they're making it in blood.
