4/5: Close to the Bone

Close to the Bone - Stuart MacBride

A neighbour lent me this one with a stack of other books. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did - police procedural's are rarely my book of choice.

This is number eight in the series, so there are a lot of characters who you're expected to know. Despite that, they weren't overwhelming, and I didn't feel like I had to struggle to catch up. There are also a lot of open sub-plots, which I'm guessing means this isn't the last in the series.

What I didn't expect from this story was the fun vein of black humour running through it among the police work. It really lifted and carried the story.
