This is only my third Inspector Rebus novel (in addition to The Falls and Exit Music), and is easily my favorite. In addition to the superbly dark character of John Rebus, we have a host of other characters (some familiar, some new), and enough plot twists to keep you pretzel like for days. Anyone who has been avoiding Rankin for fear of "just another detective mystery series" should run to the nearest bookstore and stock up: there is so much more to Rankin's lovingly crafted descriptions of his characters and beloved Edinburgh. He brings out the pathos and beauty in unkempt flats, and the simple everyday activities as you try to find your way between professional and personal lives in an unforgiving world of dueling egos.
