Lively suspense in Edinburgh, Scotland. Inspector John Rebus makes a great hard-boiled, cynical Scottish cop. Drug heist, scandal, conspiracy, violence - lots of fun.

I gave this 250 pages to win me over and it fell a little short. Rankin comes across intelligently, but there was too much inconsequential chat, and almost no action.

This is an unabridged cassette version. The story is a tiny bit slow, but I loved hearing the various Scottish and English accents of the main characters in the story as our well-beloved maverick Rebus essentially goes under cover in a class of other cops with behavioral problems to work out if they have in fact been covering up major crimes and stealing loot. Lots of twists and turns, a few interesting surprises, and plenty of time to get to know Rebus and his associates rather well.

This was my first experience with Rankin's Inspector Rebus series of books. I loved the plot lines that Rankin creates. They are exciting and unexpected. The Inspector Rebus character is edgy--throughout I was not 100% sure whether I liked him or not but I was always interested.

I really enjoyed this book, though it took a couple of chapters to get into it. My mother in law gave it to me, and she has a thing for detective stories set in the UK.
