With this follow-up to Cold Granite, deemed an “impressive debut” by Publishers Weekly, Stuart MacBride proves himself to be a rising star of crime fiction—and in Dying Light, the action is more explosive than ever…
 
A FALL FROM GRACE
On the coast of Scotland, in the “Granite City” of Aberdeen, Detective Sergeant Logan McRae is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Bumped to the homicide department’s “Screw-up Squad” after a sting operation gone wrong, Logan will do anything to prove that he doesn’t belong there…even if it means working overtime on two baffling cases: a fatal act of arson in a squatter’s apartment and the murder of a prostitute in the city’s notorious red-light district.
 
A DEADLY UPRISING
But when it rains in Aberdeen, it pours—and soon Logan is up to his neck in danger. Turns out the two cases might have something dangerously in common. Now, enlisting the help of his former D.I., his forensic-pathologist ex-girlfriend, and his fellow “no-hopers” on the squad, Logan is charged not only with solving a series of vicious crimes but saving his own life—and reputation—in the process.

He smiled. They would be screaming soon enough.

The squat was halfway down a terrace of abandoned two-storey buildings—dirty granite walls barely lit by the dull streetlights, windows covered with thick plywood. Except for one on the upper floor, where a thin, sick-looking light oozed
