John Rebus, an outstanding creation... very ambitious and very confident with acute observation of the not-so-bonny side of Scotland.
Mike Ripley, Sunday Telegraph
Rankin's ability to create a credible character, delivering convincing dialogue to complement sinister and hard-hitting plots set against vividly detailed atmosphere, is simply awesome.
Ian Rankin is the worldwide #1 bestselling writer of the Inspector Rebus mysteries, including Knots and Crosses, Hide and Seek, Let It Bleed, Black and Blue, Set in Darkness, Resurrection Men, A Question of Blood, The Falls and Exit Music. He has won an Edgar Award, a Gold Dagger for fiction, a Diamond Dagger for career excellence, and the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He has been elected a Hawthornden Fellow, and received the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his contributions to literature. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife and their two sons.
A wonderful mystery by one of the best in the business. You'll want to read more of the Rebus series after this one.Published 22 months ago by Brent Angell
Rebus is a favourite character of mine. Irreverant, introverted, ruthless. In this novel he is none of that and it takes a very long time to get to the plot and solve the mystery. Read morePublished on June 24 2013 by Alice Richards
This was an abridged book! I really dislike abridged books and nowhere was this advertised as abridged or I would not have ordered it. It's a big disappointment.Published on May 23 2013 by gail Meadows
