    Stuart McBride takes us back into Aberdeen and the mayhem that marks its policing with what Tufty describes as 'The Wrinkled Filthy Horror of Doom' that is DS Steel. In a story structured in the manner of Winnie the Pooh, and oh, that seems so apt, the shambolic Steel gets to be the st...

    Is there a single detective anywhere created in fiction who could outdo Roberta Steel? No is what I say ? she is (subjectively) the single most entertaining and cleverly written police protagonist on the block. All the blocks. In my humble opinion anyway ? therefore a book from the...

    3.5 stars Oh man?this is a tough one. First let me say I?m a huge fan of this author. HUGE. When I see a new book of his on the horizon, I break out the happy dance. And immediately begin plotting how to make it mine. I?ve read all the Logan McRae & Ash Henderson books ...

    A novel starring DS Roberta Steel? Can that really work? I mean I like her, she is a great character in the Logan McRae series. But, can she really front her own own book? Oh yes, she can! If you have read any of Stuart MacBride's books, then you already know he's a terrific writer,...

    The fans of Stuart McBride's Logan McRae series will certainly recognize DS Roberta Steel is this standalone spinoff. DS Roberta Steel ... .she's a rather unique character. She's rude to the point of being obnoxious to everyone. She's definitely no lady by any stretch of the imagina...

    Won this book on first reads,really good cop thriller. ...

    Roberta Steele has been demoted after attempting to stitch up a suspect in this spin off from the excellent Logan McRae series. Roberta's not happy and she makes sure that everyone knows it. Roberta knows who the guilty party is and she won't rest until she gets her man. If you enjo...

    Absolutely flaming brilliant!!! Yet again Stuart MacBride is the best. ...

    Pre-ordered ...

    I Would give this 6 0r 7 Stars if I Could .. Steele is the Greatest Cop Character I Have Ever Read ,,,This Book I think is My Favourite Stuart MacBride .. Wonderful ..Wonderful ...

    A Steel spin-off? Give. It. To. Me. Now. ...

    Gave up around the 60/70 page mark. I didnt like Roberta Steel as a main character. Felt weird. I think for me she will always be a sidekick who pops in with her humour once in a while. ...

    The presentation of this book is some sort of tribute to A A Milne and comic book add-ons did little to enhance the story. Roberta Steele has been demoted to Sergeant and is back chasing shop lifters and other petty criminals while still seeking to catch the rapist Jack Wallace and bri...

    I received this book from Good Reads. "No 1 Times Bestseller". I thought I was in for a good read, as I love detective stories, but I did not enjoy this one. I did read quite a bit of it, hoping my opinion would change, but it did not, so in the end I gave up on it. Too much trying...

    My favourite offering from Stuart McBride so far, from the winnie the pooh opening to the doodles of Tufty at the end, this was an entertaining read of one of my favourite characters of his. Sure it was farcical in parts but it helped lift the heaviness of the storyline and just suited...

    I really liked this one-such good dialogue with lots of humour thrown in. Logan Macrae does not really appear but does not detract in my opinion. Roberta Steel and Tufty are brilliant! ...

    This is described as "Logan McRae 10.5" and it picks up the story of Roberta post-demotion (you do need to have read the others for this, I think). It's full of farce and very funny (I get so much more out of this now that I know what "sharny" means ...) The title, and the opening scen...

    Super! I didn't think at first that this book would work so well without Logan but Tufty saved the day and became a worthy foil for Steele! I've read all Stuart's books at least twice and this one will be no exception! ...

    Any book which can incorporate my most favourite not-a-swear-word, fudgemonkeys, is always going to make me chuckle. Any book which combines the aforementioned not-a-swear-word and the irrepressible Roberta Steel ? well you are pretty much guaranteed a cover to cover chucklefest of t...

    I've seen some fairly negative reviews, saying that Logan McRae is sorely missed - and of course, he is. That really goes without saying :) But I still enjoyed this nonetheless. Stuart MacBride's use of the Aberdonian dialectic alone, will keep me reading as I hear (in my head) m...

    I?m a huge fan of the Logan McRea books, and having this one focus on the recently demoted Roberta Steel was brilliant as she is one of my faves characters in Crime Fiction. Steel and Tufty are after a very nasty man who?s doing unspeakable things outside peoples houses whilst we...

    1/8/18 Not at all what I expected, in the best possible way. Full review tk. ...

    Nominally an entry in the Logan McRae series, though he plays a very small part. The emphasis is on Roberta Steel, the cartoon character lesbian police officer who has been demoted to sergeant. The book follows similar lines to one in which McRae was demoted, with the protagonist havin...

    Fudge Flavoured Wombles in Tartan Noir The odd thing is that I didn't give this book the best chance because I was in a foul mood when I started listening to it. Half an hour later my troubles were forgotten. This is a gloriously entertaining piece of Tartan Noir from Stuart McBride...

    If the question is how do you write tartan noir inspired by classic children's books and come up with an absolute belter, the answer is Now We Are Dead. Good job and thank you Mr MacBride. ...

    I have recently been trying to catch up with the MacBride novels, I have fallen behind with. Last month I reviewed, A Dark So Deadly and I wanted to get this novel read before the latest MacBride novel release (so excited!). I also had my arm slightly bent up my back, by Kate, Eva and ...

    Now We Are Dead by Stuart MacBride is described as number 10.5 in the Logan McRae series. While I believe it could be read as a standalone, there are many, many rewards for those who know the series and in particular, those who have grown to know and love the former DCI Roberta Steel, ...

    Detective Chief Inspector Roberta Steele, who has been the terror of the police force for years, has been demoted down to a Detective Sergeant. This occurred when she planted evidence against Jack Wallace who she knew was guilty of rape but could not prove her case. Now she has a new t...

    Any book which can incorporate my most favourite not-a-swear-word, fudgemonkeys, is always going to make me chuckle. Any book which combines the aforementioned not-a-swear-word and the irrepressible Roberta Steel ? well you are pretty much guaranteed a cover to cover chucklefest of t...

    I've seen some fairly negative reviews, saying that Logan McRae is sorely missed - and of course, he is. That really goes without saying :) But I still enjoyed this nonetheless. Stuart MacBride's use of the Aberdonian dialectic alone, will keep me reading as I hear (in my head) m...

    I?m a huge fan of the Logan McRea books, and having this one focus on the recently demoted Roberta Steel was brilliant as she is one of my faves characters in Crime Fiction. Steel and Tufty are after a very nasty man who?s doing unspeakable things outside peoples houses whilst we...

    A novel starring DS Roberta Steel? Can that really work? I mean I like her, she is a great character in the Logan McRae series. But, can she really front her own own book? Oh yes, she can! If you have read any of Stuart MacBride's books, then you already know he's a terrific writer,...

    My favourite offering from Stuart McBride so far, from the winnie the pooh opening to the doodles of Tufty at the end, this was an entertaining read of one of my favourite characters of his. Sure it was farcical in parts but it helped lift the heaviness of the storyline and just suited...

    A novel starring DS Roberta Steel? Can that really work? I mean I like her, she is a great character in the Logan McRae series. But, can she really front her own own book? Oh yes, she can! If you have read any of Stuart MacBride's books, then you already know he's a terrific writer,...

    I received this book from Good Reads. "No 1 Times Bestseller". I thought I was in for a good read, as I love detective stories, but I did not enjoy this one. I did read quite a bit of it, hoping my opinion would change, but it did not, so in the end I gave up on it. Too much trying...

    My favourite offering from Stuart McBride so far, from the winnie the pooh opening to the doodles of Tufty at the end, this was an entertaining read of one of my favourite characters of his. Sure it was farcical in parts but it helped lift the heaviness of the storyline and just suited...

    This is described as "Logan McRae 10.5" and it picks up the story of Roberta post-demotion (you do need to have read the others for this, I think). It's full of farce and very funny (I get so much more out of this now that I know what "sharny" means ...) The title, and the opening scen...

    Super! I didn't think at first that this book would work so well without Logan but Tufty saved the day and became a worthy foil for Steele! I've read all Stuart's books at least twice and this one will be no exception! ...

    Any book which can incorporate my most favourite not-a-swear-word, fudgemonkeys, is always going to make me chuckle. Any book which combines the aforementioned not-a-swear-word and the irrepressible Roberta Steel ? well you are pretty much guaranteed a cover to cover chucklefest of t...

    I've seen some fairly negative reviews, saying that Logan McRae is sorely missed - and of course, he is. That really goes without saying :) But I still enjoyed this nonetheless. Stuart MacBride's use of the Aberdonian dialectic alone, will keep me reading as I hear (in my head) m...

    Gave up around the 60/70 page mark. I didnt like Roberta Steel as a main character. Felt weird. I think for me she will always be a sidekick who pops in with her humour once in a while. ...

    The presentation of this book is some sort of tribute to A A Milne and comic book add-ons did little to enhance the story. Roberta Steele has been demoted to Sergeant and is back chasing shop lifters and other petty criminals while still seeking to catch the rapist Jack Wallace and bri...

    I received this book from Good Reads. "No 1 Times Bestseller". I thought I was in for a good read, as I love detective stories, but I did not enjoy this one. I did read quite a bit of it, hoping my opinion would change, but it did not, so in the end I gave up on it. Too much trying...

    My favourite offering from Stuart McBride so far, from the winnie the pooh opening to the doodles of Tufty at the end, this was an entertaining read of one of my favourite characters of his. Sure it was farcical in parts but it helped lift the heaviness of the storyline and just suited...

    I really liked this one-such good dialogue with lots of humour thrown in. Logan Macrae does not really appear but does not detract in my opinion. Roberta Steel and Tufty are brilliant! ...

    This is described as "Logan McRae 10.5" and it picks up the story of Roberta post-demotion (you do need to have read the others for this, I think). It's full of farce and very funny (I get so much more out of this now that I know what "sharny" means ...) The title, and the opening scen...

    Super! I didn't think at first that this book would work so well without Logan but Tufty saved the day and became a worthy foil for Steele! I've read all Stuart's books at least twice and this one will be no exception! ...

    Any book which can incorporate my most favourite not-a-swear-word, fudgemonkeys, is always going to make me chuckle. Any book which combines the aforementioned not-a-swear-word and the irrepressible Roberta Steel ? well you are pretty much guaranteed a cover to cover chucklefest of t...

    I've seen some fairly negative reviews, saying that Logan McRae is sorely missed - and of course, he is. That really goes without saying :) But I still enjoyed this nonetheless. Stuart MacBride's use of the Aberdonian dialectic alone, will keep me reading as I hear (in my head) m...

    I?m a huge fan of the Logan McRea books, and having this one focus on the recently demoted Roberta Steel was brilliant as she is one of my faves characters in Crime Fiction. Steel and Tufty are after a very nasty man who?s doing unspeakable things outside peoples houses whilst we...

    1/8/18 Not at all what I expected, in the best possible way. Full review tk. ...

    Nominally an entry in the Logan McRae series, though he plays a very small part. The emphasis is on Roberta Steel, the cartoon character lesbian police officer who has been demoted to sergeant. The book follows similar lines to one in which McRae was demoted, with the protagonist havin...

    Fudge Flavoured Wombles in Tartan Noir The odd thing is that I didn't give this book the best chance because I was in a foul mood when I started listening to it. Half an hour later my troubles were forgotten. This is a gloriously entertaining piece of Tartan Noir from Stuart McBride...

    If the question is how do you write tartan noir inspired by classic children's books and come up with an absolute belter, the answer is Now We Are Dead. Good job and thank you Mr MacBride. ...

    I have recently been trying to catch up with the MacBride novels, I have fallen behind with. Last month I reviewed, A Dark So Deadly and I wanted to get this novel read before the latest MacBride novel release (so excited!). I also had my arm slightly bent up my back, by Kate, Eva and ...

    Now We Are Dead by Stuart MacBride is described as number 10.5 in the Logan McRae series. While I believe it could be read as a standalone, there are many, many rewards for those who know the series and in particular, those who have grown to know and love the former DCI Roberta Steel, ...

    Detective Chief Inspector Roberta Steele, who has been the terror of the police force for years, has been demoted down to a Detective Sergeant. This occurred when she planted evidence against Jack Wallace who she knew was guilty of rape but could not prove her case. Now she has a new t...

    Now We Are dead By Stuart Macbride Now We Are Dead is a crime/thriller. DS Roberta Steel has been demoted after framing a rapist for a crime he didn?t commit.....Jack Wallace is now out of prison and on the rampage and looking for revenge - he wants Steel. Having been demoted...

    Thank you to Goodreads for the chance to read this book, the line on the back cover that says "She can't prove he did it..but she might die trying" pulls you into the story but gives no hint of the humour contained within. "Now we are dead" is the funniest book I've read this year but...

    Stuart McBride takes us back into Aberdeen and the mayhem that marks its policing with what Tufty describes as 'The Wrinkled Filthy Horror of Doom' that is DS Steel. In a story structured in the manner of Winnie the Pooh, and oh, that seems so apt, the shambolic Steel gets to be the st...

    Is there a single detective anywhere created in fiction who could outdo Roberta Steel? No is what I say ? she is (subjectively) the single most entertaining and cleverly written police protagonist on the block. All the blocks. In my humble opinion anyway ? therefore a book from the...

    3.5 stars Oh man?this is a tough one. First let me say I?m a huge fan of this author. HUGE. When I see a new book of his on the horizon, I break out the happy dance. And immediately begin plotting how to make it mine. I?ve read all the Logan McRae & Ash Henderson books ...

    A novel starring DS Roberta Steel? Can that really work? I mean I like her, she is a great character in the Logan McRae series. But, can she really front her own own book? Oh yes, she can! If you have read any of Stuart MacBride's books, then you already know he's a terrific writer,...

    The fans of Stuart McBride's Logan McRae series will certainly recognize DS Roberta Steel is this standalone spinoff. DS Roberta Steel ... .she's a rather unique character. She's rude to the point of being obnoxious to everyone. She's definitely no lady by any stretch of the imagina...

    Won this book on first reads,really good cop thriller. ...

    Roberta Steele has been demoted after attempting to stitch up a suspect in this spin off from the excellent Logan McRae series. Roberta's not happy and she makes sure that everyone knows it. Roberta knows who the guilty party is and she won't rest until she gets her man. If you enjo...

    Absolutely flaming brilliant!!! Yet again Stuart MacBride is the best. ...
