The first two Rebus books were good, this one was great. A clever, beautifully revealed mystery, a gripping plot, a smattering of very well written action, just the right amount if humour and a superb protagonist. ( )

Really enjoying the Rebus series, probably because the character still surprises me at times. With this one, I enjoyed the move to London, the different characters, and the killer. But it was also fun to have the Canadian connection, both with the Lisa Frazer character, and the reference the Steppenwolf song, Born to be Wild, written by a guy from my hometown of Oshawa. ( )

Another Inspector Rebus, another good story about the socially inept Inspector. In this installment, Rebus is seconded to London to help solve a serial murder case. He bubbles along in his humble way and then... .an exciting denouement. Well done! ( )

Inspector Rebus is finally developing some character. The character I'm used to from the later books (which I read before this one). It is still not quite as good as some later books, but this will clearly keep any fan of John Rebus satisfied. ( )

Another page-turning read from Ian Rankin.
This time it was set in London, where John Rebus
has been assigned. ( )
