Praise for Stuart MacBride"Superbly unsettling . . . A crackling thriller."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review, one of "PW"'s best mysteries of the year) on "Flesh House""MacBride may have hit his stride in book one, but here he breaks into a run."--"Booklist" (starred review) on "Flesh House" "What is there in the Scottish air that makes its new writers among the best in the business?"--"Chicago Tribune" on "Bloodshot""MacBride fills his Aberdeen fun house with hearty, clever, and usually profane humor that lightens every chapter. . . . As Ian Rankin's long-running crime series begins to sound like a leaky bagpipe, Scottish writers such as MacBride arise to take up the kilt-waving in earnest."--"Pittsburgh Post-Gazette" on "Bloodshot""McRae is an interesting and subtle detective, and his investigation is both inventive and imaginative."--"The Dallas Morning News" on "Cold Granite""Grade: A . . . Tartan noir has a fresh new voice with an Aberdeen brogue in Stuart MacBride, whose first mystery, "Cold Granite", bids well to keep up with Ian Rankin and Denise Mina."--"Rocky Mountain News" on "Cold Granite"
