    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...

    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 Steel is great, as always. She's really very special. I was laughing out loud at some her and Tufty's shenanigans. The thriller aspect is lacking but the humour more than makes up for that. ...

    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...

    When I read this back in January I posted a review. Or at least I thought I did. Imagine my surprise when I found it here in the draft queue. Whoops. NOW WE ARE DEAD is a spinoff from the Logan McRae series featuring the glorious DS Roberta Steel. I say glorious in a "slightly ironi...

    Stuart MacBride is one of my favourite authors, and his Logan McRae series is in my top three crime series. I will gladly read anything he releases, but I was particularly excited to dive into Now We Are Dead. With Now We Are Dead, we get a story following one of my favourite character...

    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 ...

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

    4.5 All?inizio temevo che un libro tutto su Roberta Steel senza Logan, potesse risultare pesante invece si legge che un piacere, grazia anche alla presenza di Ciuffo che stempera un po? di situazioni. Ci sono alcune scene terribili (quella del bambino!) che tirano fuori un i...

    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...

    Being a great fan of DCI Logan McRea I was curious to see how the author would handle (handle is probably the appropriate word as DS Steel is a bit of a rogue to curtail) setting one of the main characters and indeed one of the much loved characters into her very own book! The now newl...

    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 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...

    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! ...

    NOW WE ARE DEAD is the 11th book in Stuart MacBride?s DS Logan McRae series. But NOW WE ARE DEAD is very different from the other entries in the police procedurals series set in Aberdeen, Scotland because this time DI Roberta Steel is the protagonist, with a new character, DC Qui...

    I can?t say it often enough - I love Stuart MacBride. Every single thing he writes. And he?s such a genius for giving Steel a boo of her own. Written in the style of Winnie the Pooh - brilliant! How many people were arrested in this one? How many off comments were made that had me ...

    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...

    Being a great fan of DCI Logan McRea I was curious to see how the author would handle (handle is probably the appropriate word as DS Steel is a bit of a rogue to curtail) setting one of the main characters and indeed one of the much loved characters into her very own book! The now newl...

    I can?t say it often enough - I love Stuart MacBride. Every single thing he writes. And he?s such a genius for giving Steel a boo of her own. Written in the style of Winnie the Pooh - brilliant! How many people were arrested in this one? How many off comments were made that had me ...

    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'm a huge fan of MacBride but I did have my doubts about a book based around the indomitable Steel. At times in the past she has really grated on me to the extent I felt she was in danger of becoming a caricature rather than being a convincing character. I didn't want this boo...

    Steele is a forced to be reckoned with and i bloody love her. She is phenomenal and this book is phenomenal. As ever, MacBride's quirky characterization makes the characters so three dimensional I feel they are my best friends. (or worse enemies) As a spi noff this works so well. Steel...

    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...

    My first Roberta Steel novel and I will definitely go back and read those that came before. What a crazy, out-of-control ride it was. Not sure I?ve run across a police officer quite as complex and interesting. Enjoyed it! ...

    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...

    Being a great fan of DCI Logan McRea I was curious to see how the author would handle (handle is probably the appropriate word as DS Steel is a bit of a rogue to curtail) setting one of the main characters and indeed one of the much loved characters into her very own book! The now newl...

    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 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...

    I can?t say it often enough - I love Stuart MacBride. Every single thing he writes. And he?s such a genius for giving Steel a boo of her own. Written in the style of Winnie the Pooh - brilliant! How many people were arrested in this one? How many off comments were made that had me ...

    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'm a huge fan of MacBride but I did have my doubts about a book based around the indomitable Steel. At times in the past she has really grated on me to the extent I felt she was in danger of becoming a caricature rather than being a convincing character. I didn't want this boo...

    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...

    Being a great fan of DCI Logan McRea I was curious to see how the author would handle (handle is probably the appropriate word as DS Steel is a bit of a rogue to curtail) setting one of the main characters and indeed one of the much loved characters into her very own book! The now newl...

    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 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...

    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! ...

    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 Steel is great, as always. She's really very special. I was laughing out loud at some her and Tufty's shenanigans. The thriller aspect is lacking but the humour more than makes up for that. ...

    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...

    When I read this back in January I posted a review. Or at least I thought I did. Imagine my surprise when I found it here in the draft queue. Whoops. NOW WE ARE DEAD is a spinoff from the Logan McRae series featuring the glorious DS Roberta Steel. I say glorious in a "slightly ironi...

    I'm on a roll with these 5-star books. This one could be nothing less. ...

    Stuart MacBride is one of my favourite authors, and his Logan McRae series is in my top three crime series. I will gladly read anything he releases, but I was particularly excited to dive into Now We Are Dead. With Now We Are Dead, we get a story following one of my favourite character...

    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 ...

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

    NOW WE ARE DEAD is the 11th book in Stuart MacBride?s DS Logan McRae series. But NOW WE ARE DEAD is very different from the other entries in the police procedurals series set in Aberdeen, Scotland because this time DI Roberta Steel is the protagonist, with a new character, DC Qui...

    I can?t say it often enough - I love Stuart MacBride. Every single thing he writes. And he?s such a genius for giving Steel a boo of her own. Written in the style of Winnie the Pooh - brilliant! How many people were arrested in this one? How many off comments were made that had me ...

    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'm a huge fan of MacBride but I did have my doubts about a book based around the indomitable Steel. At times in the past she has really grated on me to the extent I felt she was in danger of becoming a caricature rather than being a convincing character. I didn't want this boo...

    Steele is a forced to be reckoned with and i bloody love her. She is phenomenal and this book is phenomenal. As ever, MacBride's quirky characterization makes the characters so three dimensional I feel they are my best friends. (or worse enemies) As a spi noff this works so well. Steel...
