A heart-stopping crime thriller and the fourth consecutive No. 1 Bestseller from the author of the Logan McRae series and Birthdays for the Dead. He's back... Eight years ago, 'The Inside Man' murdered four women and left three more in critical condition - all of them with their stomachs slit open and a plastic doll stitched inside. And then the killer just ... disappeared. Ash Henderson was a Detective Inspector on the initial investigation, but a lot can change in eight years. His family has been destroyed, his career is in tatters, and one of Oldcastle's most vicious criminals is making sure he spends the rest of his life in prison. Now a nurse has turned up dead on a patch of waste ground, a plastic doll buried beneath her skin, and it looks as if Ash might finally get a shot at redemption. At earning his freedom. At revenge.

Another fast paced gritty thriller from Stuart MacBride. Not as much dark humor as previous books but still enjoyable. You need to be able to handle the graphic descriptions to enjoy this ( and all ) his novels. Definitely worth it for fans.

They don't come any blacker than this! Dry, witty, clever. As long as you can take the graphic descriptions, the violence and the smells, this is a great read.The bad people are apalling! Stuart MacBride at his gory best.Ian Rankin's Saints of the Shadow Bible on steroids!I can't wait for the next one in the series.

If you're already a fan, don't hesitate to grab this. As we've come to expect from MacBride, you get great characters, a tight & intricate plot & laugh out loud dialogue.
Ash Henderson can't seem to catch a break but is offered a chance to redeem himself somewhat. First, he has to survive old enemies (the psycho Mrs. Kerrigan & Wee Free McFee) & figure out how to get that annoying ankle bracelet off.
Yes, there is graphic violence but if you enjoy black humour, this is for you.
