Review: Broken Skin By Stuart Macbride

Broken Skin (Logan McRae, #3)A new Logan McRae thriller from the bestselling author of 'Cold Granite' and 'Dying Light', set in gritty Aberdeen. In the pale grey light of a chilly February, Aberdeen is not at its best! There's a rapist prowling the city's cold granite streets, leaving a string of tortured women behind. But while DS Logan McRae's girlfriend is out acting as bait, he's dealing with the blood-drenched body of an unidentified male, dumped outside Accident and Emergency. When a stash of explicit films turn up, all featuring the victim, it looks as if someone in the local bondage community has developed a taste for violent death, and Logan gets dragged into the twilight world of pornographers, sex-shops and S&M. To make matters worse, when they finally arrest the Granite City Rapist, Grampian Police are forced by the courts to let him go: Aberdeen Football Club's star striker has an alibi for every attack. Could they really have got it so badly wrong? Logan thinks so, but the trick will be getting anyone to listen before the real rapist strikes again. Especially as his girlfriend, PC Jackie 'Ball Breaker' Watson, is convinced the footballer is guilty and she's hell-bent on a conviction at any cost...

Kerry's review 5 out of 5 

Oh where to even start with this book. The 3rd book in the Logan McRae series and like the other two it didn't disappoint. This one to me seemed more dark, women being raped nearly nightly and the prime suspect can't be charged as he has rock right alibis. I shouted so much as from the start I was also convinced it was him and they needed to prove it. The 2nd case that no one could figure out was the death of Jason Fettes who died after a bondage experiment gone wrong. The author does his best to approach the subject sensitively and he does an brilliant job. Right up to the end I couldn't figure out who had done it. I love Jackie Watson she is such a strong character being a female police officer can't be hard but she holds her own I can't wait to see more of her woman power and all that. Another 5 stars for me roll on book 4 that is patiently waiting for me
