While the sun never shines on a Rankin' Rebus this last installment manages not to instil the soul-searching bleakness of some of the prior Rebus novels. There may be hope for humanity, Edinburgh and Scotland after all. Rebus; not so much.


Purely based on personal memories I recommend Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie. Anything will do but Carlton Hill and Knockin' on Joe and maybe Strangle Your Animal seem somewhat appropriate.

Don't read this as your first Rebus novel, don't feel you have to make it your last. Somewhat disappointed this didn't earn the fabled 5-star review, but a solid 4, solid Rankin, solid Rebus.
