There were too many underground organizations and peripheral characters to keep track of in this book, too many nuances about "the troubles" in Northern Ireland and the Scottish nationalist movement, gunrunning, and the criminal underworld. I often found myself skipping over the details.

Frankly, though, that didn't seem to matter. The story was interesting anyway, mostly because of Rankin's skill in bringing the Edinburgh background to life, and because of Rebus himself. He is still one of my favorite complex, difficult, and often troubling characters. He makes this a series I enjoy and will return to.

This is the sixth entry in the British police procedural series featuring Inspector John Rebus who lives in Edinburgh, Scotland. It's become one of my favorite modern-day mystery series with an imperfect but likable main character, good mysteries and a great sense of a city I would love to someday visit.

I just think that Ian Rankin is at the top of the entire mystery/detective genre. With his knowledge of procedure, psychology and 'wet and windy' Scotland, the books are a triple treat; I loved it and you will likely feel the same way.

An excellent thriller set in Edinburgh during the Festival. I love Rebus and Rankin.

Ian Rankin seems to get better with each book. I love the look that we get of Edinburgh and some of its underground life. He keeps you interested all the way until the end. I look forward to the next one and his well-developed characters.

Another page turner from Ian Rankin. I love the tortured soul of Inspector Rebus.
