Ian Rankin is a great writer of police mysteries; his series including this book about Inspector John Rebus continues another great story.
The interest in finding another body, most likely too old to helpful in determining who shot the person. Add a secret black book and more secrets come to light.

A very interesting mystery taking place in the Western part of England. A real page turner.

Rebus takes on a big crime boss and puts his life in danger. He dwells on an old case in which a murder took place and was never solved. He is on the outs with his girlfriend and is working with 2 young cops who may be in danger of becoming involved. You get a feel for Edinburgh; both the rich area and the ordinary. Rebus is always on the edge of suspension for his unorthodox style.

I gave this audio CD only two stars, not for the quality of the story but for the fact that I could only understand one in every five words the narrator read. While the Scottish accent is adorable, it is unfathomable as well. I did not complete the CD, which is very rare for me.

The Black Book is another great installment in the Rebus series. Dry humour, intriguing characters, excellent plot and the fine atmosphere of life in Scotland. This book does not disappoint. Looking forward to my next visit with Rebus.
