All Thats Dead by Stuart MacBride

Stewart MacBride's latest investigation for Logan MacRae and his Police Scotland colleagues provides excellent entertainment and thrills.  Logan has returned to work after a year recovering from stab wounds sustained on the job, and hopes for a gentle reintroduction in the Professional Standards Unit, but fate and short staffing decree otherwise.  The detective he is assigned to support lands a case concerning a missing person which soon takes a gruesome turn.  The situation escalates and the pressure (from superiors, the media and common decency) increases.  A well-constructed plot and great character development make this book well worth reading.  I was fortunate to receive a pre-publication galley in return for an honest review, and I have no hesitation in recommending All That's Dead, an excellent addition to an excellent series.
