Read from January 20 to 22, 2011

A decent collection of short stories. Some of these stories really fascinated me, but unfortunately not the majority of them. Those that did certainly did make me want to delve deeper into the story, especially the title story which was my favourite from the collection. All round, the stories were of good quality and did have a certain Scottish authenticity. I didn't find myself loving or loathing Rebus, but he was a very realistic character. The stories were good for a quick read - I'm not sure I'd have liked most o them if they had been full length, though. I'd be interested in reading more of Rankin's works.
