Dark Blood

Серия: "-"

The new Logan McRae novel set in gritty Aberdeen from the bestselling author of Cold Granite and Blind Eye. Richard Knox has served his time, so why shouldn't he be allowed to live wherever he wants? Yes, in the past he was a violent rapist, but he's seen the error of his ways. Found God. Wants to leave his dark past in Newcastle behind him and make a new start. Or so he says. Detective Sergeant Logan McRae isn't exactly thrilled to be part of the team helping Knox settle into his new Aberdeen home. He's even less thrilled to be stuck with DSI Danby from Northumbria Police - the man who put Knox behind bars for ten years - supposedly here to'keep an eye on things'. Only things are about to go very, very wrong. Edinburgh gangster Malk the Knife wants a slice of the development boom Donald Trump's golf course is bringing to the Granite City, whether local crime lord Wee Hamish Mowat likes it or not. Three heavies from Newcastle want a'quiet word'with DSI Danby about a missing mob accountant. And Richard Knox's dark past isn't done with him yet!

Characters

The main characters in the Logan McRae series:

*Detective Sergeant Logan McRae: The main character in Stuart MacBride's books. A detective sergeant based at Police Headquarters (FHQ) in Queen Street, Aberdeen. Logan is employed by Grampian Police a real police force responsible for the policing of the North East of Scotland. He is a dedicated CID Officer who works on instinct and is dogged in pursuing the truth. We learn in the first book that he has just returned from a years sick leave after being stabbed.

*WPC "Jackie" Watson: Affectionately known as "ball breaker", she is Logan’s new girlfriend. We find out later in the books that she has some sinister qualities.

*Dr. Isobel MacAlister: Logan’s ex-girlfriend and the Chief Pathologist. A cold aloof woman nicknamed the ‘Ice Queen’. She started seeing Colin Miller during the first book, "Cold Granite" before they moved in together and had a baby in "Broken Skin". She is occasionally prone to showing a more human and compassionate side although this happens very rarely.

*Colin Miller: A glaswegian hotshot Journalist who moves to Aberdeen in the first book. Working for the Press and Journal he is very well connected. He is living with Isobel MacAlister and, as of the end of "Broken Skin", they have had a baby together. His relationship with Logan began as a friendship in book one which ended when Colin loses his fingers due to a mistake of Logan's. By the end of book three they are reconciled though.

*Detective Inspector Insch: D.S Logan’s first boss. A man who does not suffer fools gladly. He is also very overweight possibly as a result of his addicion to sweets. Insch is also an aspiring director and actor and throughout the books, he is involved in something to do with the theatre such as a pantomime or operetta.

*Detective Inspector Steel: Logan’s chain-smoking boss when he is sent to the "screw up" squad in "Dying Light". She is a self-confessed lesbian with a habit of making rather inappropriate comments at inappropriate times.
