    Great solid Rebus crime, 10th in the series Just spent some time after midnight finishing this book And it s my 50th book, closing my challenge, thank you Rebus Great, dark brooding crime series, set in the beautiful as well bleak Edinburgh surroundings full of character Inspector Rebus remains to be a troubled soul but also a driven fighter against injustice and crime I ve said it before, will say it again, I love my Rebus Going to sleep now And must revisit Edinburgh soon Great solid Rebus crime, 10th in the series Just spent some time after midnight finishing this book And it s my 50th book, closing my challenge, thank you Rebus Great, dark brooding crime series, set in the beautiful as well bleak Edinburgh surroundings full of character Inspector Rebus remains to be a troubled soul but also a driven fighter against injustice and crime I ve said it before, will say it again, I love my Rebus Going to sleep now And must revisit Edinburgh soon Maybe even the Oxford bar Arguably no Scottish novelist since Sir Walter Scott has had the commercial and critical success that Ian Rankin now enjoys He may even be said to have invented modern Scotland, or at least modern Edinburgh, for his readers, just as Scott did in his time Rebus lives So does Rankin s Edinburgh Spectator

    I found this book s plot to be a bit loose and disjointed and it left some unanswered questions It also had me questioning how we got to a particular point at times But the Rebus character is still great I like the way Rankin depicts his uncertainties and foibles While we read of these we never lose sight of the fact that he is a very brilliant copper I didn t much care for one of the villains in this book and I didn t like how that particular thread was left at the end of the book because I found this book s plot to be a bit loose and disjointed and it left some unanswered questions It also had me questioning how we got to a particular point at times But the Rebus character is still great I like the way Rankin depicts his uncertainties and foibles While we read of these we never lose sight of the fact that he is a very brilliant copper I didn t much care for one of the villains in this book and I didn t like how that particular thread was left at the end of the book because I really don t want to see this particular villain again Anyway, the book is worth reading because it is part of this very remarkable series I love watching Rebus as he faces and conquers his many demons And I love the underworld look at modern day Edinburgh Oh, and be prepared for a zinger at the end of the book Rankin always has these in his books
