Shatter the bones

Shatter the bones product reviews

The Number One bestseller from the award-winning Stuart MacBride. The seventh DS Logan McRae thriller is a gripping page-turner in which fame and fortune crash head-on with crime and punishment. No suspects. No clues. No rest for the wicked. 'You will raise money for the safe return of Alison and Jenny McGregor. If you raise enough money within fourteen days they will be released. If not, Jenny will be killed.' Alison and Jenny McGregor - Aberdeen's own mother-daughter singing sensation - are through to the semi-finals of TV smash-hit Britain's Next Big Star.

They're in all the gossip magazines, they've got millions of YouTube hits, everyone loves them. But their reality-TV dream has turned into a real-life nightmare. The ransom demand appears in all the papers, on the TV, and the internet, telling the nation to dig deep if they want to keep Alison and Jenny alive. The media want action; the public displays of grief and anger are reaching fever-pitch. Time is running out, but DS Logan McRae and his colleagues have nothing to go on: the kidnappers haven't left a single piece of forensic evidence. The investigation is going nowhere.

It looks as if the price of fame just got a lot higher...

What lengths would you go to for the sake of your public image? Would you plan your own abduction and maiming of your own daughter? If you would, who would you trust with the details? Do you leave clues or would you try and make it look like it was random? What sort of thing would the police be looking for?

A local singing sensation are loved by all and they go missing. The press are all over it, printing the ransom demands, the public want action and the police are trying desperately to solve the puzzle. Mistakes are made, was funny to see how they jump to some conclusions about who might want to abduct Alison and Jenny. Mistakes are made, good to see an author making the characters human.

I kind of suspected what had happened but I was still reading and following the story with huge interest. There were a few obvious ways that the story could have gone and sometimes it is so obvious but you still read to try and find out how and why things happened.

The poor kids had dinner late a few nights and I struggled to put the book down, I just wanted to see if they could find Alison and Jenny before time ran out.
