Another great installment in the world of Ian Rankin's Rebus. This book is once again set in Edinburgh and the author does an excellent job giving us a description of the city and some of it's nasty parts. I always enjoy the characters and their humorous dialogue and reaction to one another. Another re-appearance of arch enemy, Big Ger Cafferty (Strawman), adds a unique touch. In this story there are three different crime elements focused on; a man dead for twenty years found behind a wall in the renovated Parliament Building, a tramp who jumps off a bride and leaves behind a suitcase full of cash and Roddy Grieve, a political candidate is found dead. It is interesting how in the end these three instances are tied together. These subplots had all the ingredients to make this another remarkable and fascinating read. I look forward to the next book in the series and would highly recommend reading this series in order as the stories build one upon another.
