I was introduced to an author by the name Stuart Macbride.
The first mystery novel titled Cold Granite was dark and mysterious. I thought it would be too graphic for it dealt with children missing and a serial killer. But Stuart kept it light and used words to describe the events as a pathologist would explain them. His background research showed in his manner of writing.
The location is Scotland cold and dark, winter season and Stuart describes it well. Aberdeen and the FHQ with it's architectural design and the Grampian Police Force.
Logan McRae has shown that he is a good Detective Sargent and though he may do things differently and not always by the book his gut feeling guides him through the process of finding the missing link to put the criminals behind bars.
This series is a must read for those who enjoy a good mystery novel. Added to your list....
