About the Author: Stuart MacBride

Aka Stuart B MacBride The life and times of a bearded write ist.Stuart MacBride that s me was born in Dumbarton which is Glasgow as far as I m concerned moving up to Aberdeen at the tender age of two, when fashions were questionable Nothing much happened for years and years and years learned to play the recorder, then forgot how when they changed from little coloured dots to proper musical notes why the hell couldn t they have taught us the notes in the first bloody place I could have been performing my earth shattering rendition of Three Blind Mice at the Albert Hall by now appeared in some bizarre World War Two musical production did my best to avoid eating haggis and generally ran about the place a lot.Next up was an elongated spell in Westhill a small suburb seven miles west of Aberdeen where I embarked upon a mediocre academic career, hindered by a complete inability to spell and an attention span the length of a gnat s doodad.And so to UNIVERSITY, far too young, naive and stupid to be away from the family home, sharing a subterranean flat in one of the seedier bits of Edinburgh with a mad Irishman, and four other bizarre individuals The highlight of walking to the art school in the mornings yes we were students, but we still did mornings was trying not to tread in the fresh bloodstains outside our front door, and dodging the undercover CID officers trying to buy drugs Lovely place But university and I did not see eye to eye, so off I went to work offshore Like many all male environments, working offshore was the intellectual equivalent of Animal House, only without the clever bits Swearing, smoking, eating,swearing, pornography, swearing, drinking endless plastic cups of tea and did I mention the swearing But it wasmoney than I d seen in my life There s something about being handed a wadge of cash as you clamber off the minibus from the heliport, having spent the last two weeks offshore and the last two hours in an orange, rubber romper suit body bag, then blowing most of it in the pubs and clubs of Aberdeen And being young enough to get away without a hangover.Then came a spell of working for myself as a graphic designer, which went the way of all flesh and into the heady world of studio management for a nation wide marketing company Then somefreelance design work, a handful of voiceovers for local radio and video production companies and a bash at being an actor with a small a , giving it up when it became clear there was no way I was ever going to be good enough to earn a decent living It was about this time I fell into bad company a blonde from Fife who conned me into marrying her and started producing websites for a friend s fledgling Internet company From there it was a roller coaster ride in that it made a lot of people feel decidedly unwell from web designer to web manager, lead programmer, team lead and other assorted technical bollocks with three different companies, eventually ending up as a project manager for a global IT company.But there was always the writing well, that s not true, the writing only started two chapters above this one I fell victim to that most dreadful of things peer pressure Two friends were writing novels and I thought, why not I could do that Took a few years though

    Book number five in this great series As usual the police play outside the rules, the murders are gross and the interactions between most of the characters are pretty antisocial On the other hand the humour is terrific and a few of the characters are just amazing DI Steel is one of the best female cops in print and I also have a soft spot for Logan Their relationship has developed beautifully and I especi

    Wow this book packs a huge punch it s a big detective mystery, violent, sweary, drunken, chaotic messand I loved it This is always going to be a marmite book because it lives in the extremes of black humour if you don t like swearing, violence and gore this is never going to be palatable let alone funny.Not that I enjoy these thingsahembut I appreciate their fictional worth when trying to portray people livi

    Logan walked over to the window, rubbing a clear patch in the dusty glass Looked like another beautiful day to be a police officer, with outbreaks of infighting, sulking, and recriminationsIn Blind Eye, Book 5 of the Logan McRae series, Logan and Co are back with bacon butties, hangovers, and all around police investigation shenanigans But it s not all fun and games Logan has a bit of a tough time in this, and

    Set in Aberdeen, where I live, this book made interesting reading, particularly the Scottish police humour that permeates the narrative The star of the story is Detective Inspector Steel, a lesbian with wife Susan, who is desperate for a child from a sponsor.Page 398 really made me laugh with the following paragraph Steel dropped her vodka and pouredfor everyone I ever tell you about the Sperminator, Susan Goes ab

    DI Steele deserves her own fan club It would have to be a club where swearing, drinking, smoking and fiddling with your bra strap were perfectly acceptable behaviours of course You ve also got a ready made slogan as fans of the wonderful Logan McRae series from Scottish author Stuart MacBride will be aware.BLIND EYE is the 5th book in this funny, gruesome, funny, ferocious, unflinching, funny series featuring DS Loga

    I thoroughly enjoy the dark humour and tongue in cheek wit of MacBride and again it is abundant in this novel DI Steel and Logan McRae are the highlights of the series Unfortunately, instalment number five is just not as good as the previous ones I found books one to three absolutely brilliant and maybe the bar is set so high I cant quite meet the expectations and anticipation.Looking forward to having some time to read

    Blind Eye, the fifth Logan McRae novel, simply highlights why Stuart MacBride is one of my favourite authors.Whilst Blind Eye is not my favourite of the Logan McRae novels that title is currently held by Broken Skin it is certainly a great read Having recently read MacBride s Ash Henderson novels and finding them less enjoyable than his McRae novels they re still fun, but they re not the same , it was great to go back to w

    This wasnt as strong at the previous novels in the series I love the characters so they seen to keep me wantingThe main crime didn t seem as strong in this one or as thrilling The side stories seemed to keep my interest .

    3.5 starsI m taking a break from Logan McRae, not because this is a bad book, but because it started slipping into abuse of the main character There is only so many times you can screw up your protagonist and make me really care the constant abuse of his superiors and crazy girlfriends, the beating, explosions and now alcoholism I hope this will not become a trend for the rest of the series While I recognize Logan can t be the s

    This was the most suspenseful book in the Logan McRae series yet Polish mafia, crooked police officers, Aberdeen criminals trying to protect their territory, and DS McRae caught right in the middle of this mess I m wondering how muchhe can take before he completely snaps and goes off the deep end
