Stuart MacBride has been writing bestselling novels for over ten years and has remained at the top of his game, achieving the number one Sunday Times bestseller position on publication for the last four years in a row.

This January will see the release of his ninth Logan McRae novel – an ambitious attempt to convey realistically what divisional Scottish policing is like on the ground; whilst creating a page-turning plot centred around the murder of a young girl.

He is the number one bestselling author of the Logan McRae series and Birthdays for the Dead. The McRae novels have won him the CWA’s Dagger in the Library, the Barry Award for Best Debut Novel, and Best Breakthrough Author at the ITV3 Crime Thriller Awards. In 2012 Stuart was inducted into the ITV3 Crime Thriller Hall of Fame. He has also written short stories for BBC Radio 4.

Stuart’s other works include Half head a near-future thriller, Sawbones, a novella aimed at adult emergent readers and several short stories. Stuart has recently been crowned WORLD STOVIES CHAMPION at the 2014 Huntly Hairst.
