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.

A great mystery

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.

While in a reform school for cops, Inspector John Rebus joins a covert mission to gain evidence of a drug heist orchestrated by some of his classmates known as "Resurrection Men." The investigation threatens to uncover a secret Rebus has spent years trying to conceal, and before long Rebus finds himself in the thick of a scandal with men who have no problem spilling blood to get what they want.

You can't help but love John Rebus! He tries so hard to do the right thing but always seems to end up with egg on his face. This was another great Rebus read with unique characters and an excellent complex plot. These books are great to read one after another as you can't get enough of Rebus. Ian Rankin makes you feel like you are in Edinburgh along with all these characters. Siobhan has turned out to be a great sidekick for Rebus and she is starting to sound just like Rebus. I love it! I'm now looking forward to reading the next book in the series and I would highly recommend this book to those who like gritty police procedurals.

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.
