The Number One bestselling crime series from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. In this sixth DS Logan McRae thriller, Scotland's finest see first-hand how starting again can be murder...Everyone deserves a second chance. 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...

For some reason MacBride gets a lot of critism for being 'unrealistic'. The easy rebuke to that is 'its fiction'. If you want realism read true crime books. Even then its unfair because there's more realism in these books than many others. When Big Hamish Moffat sends the enforcers round to McRae's house McRae is damn scared. Compared to Rebus's relationship with Big Ger Cafferty its more plausible. Likewise McRae's drinking and attitude problems lead to an almost weekly meeting with professional standards and he's on the point of losing his job several times in this book. Rebus gets away with far too much for far too long with almost no censure. 'Dark Blood' is forensically quite accurate and there are some details in it that could only have come from a pathologist. Although fairly graphic in places its not nearly as sadistically violent as some of the books Val McDiarmid or Mo Hayder have written.
