APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The 12th instalment of Stuart MacBride’s best-selling Logan McRae series proves to be the Scottish policeman’s most complex mystery yet. Back on the job after a near-fatal stabbing, Logan sets out to investigate the disappearance of a political-science professor whose anti-independence campaign—and intemperate tweeting—has earned him a long list of enemies. Set against the tense debate about Scottish nationalism and chock full of biting wit and quirky characters, All That’s Dead is a must for longtime fans. It’s also a great starting point for readers looking to discover a great new police series.
