Note: Originally published: London: HarperCollinsPublishers When you catch a twisted killer there should be a reward, right? What Acting Detective Inspector Logan McRae gets instead is a 'development opportunity', out in the depths of rural Aberdeenshire. Welcome to divisional policing - catching drug dealers, shop lifters, vandals and the odd escaped farm animal. Then a little girl's body washes up just outside the sleepy town of Banff, kicking off a massive manhunt. The Major Investigation Team is up from Aberdeen wanting answers, and they don't care who they trample over to get them. Logan's got enough on his plate keeping B Division together, but DCI Steel wants him back on her team. As his old colleagues stomp around the countryside, burning bridges, he gets dragged deeper and deeper into the investigation.

Publisher: HarperCollinsPublishers
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2017 Roberta Steel has recently been demoted after being caught fitting up a suspect. The trouble is, the man she got sent down has had his sentence quashed - now he's back on the streets. And women are being attacked again. But if DS Steel goes anywhere near him his lawyers will get her thrown off the force for good. The Powers That Be won't listen to her - not after what happened last time. Besides, she's got more than enough ongoing cases to keep her busy - perhaps she should focus on solving them instead of harassing an innocent man? But Steel knows he's guilty and the longer he gets away with it, the more women will suffer. The question is: how much is she willing to sacrifice to stop him?
