Broken Skin by Stuart MacBride

A little light relief from the more serious reading?

Gruesome crime writing, involving two main plotlines - one a local celeb footballer who rapes and disfigures women, and the other involving sadomasochism. All set in Aberdeen, with strongly drawn police characters. Logan McRae, his girlfriend Jackie Watson and their superiors Insch, a fat guy constantly eating and trying to lose half his body weight, while directing G & S in his spare time, and Steel a lesbian tough gal. Not to forget 'Spanky' Rickards, who provides a useful insight and intro into the bondage scene. Dark humour too.

I read this one in a couple of days.
