bookshelves: mystery

My latest favorite mystery/crime fiction sleuth, Edinburgh's Inspector John Rebus has more than his fair share of demons to match his unwavering focus on justice, and both have a way of putting him at odds with the powers that be. In this first book of the series, the clues to the identity of the serial killer dubbed "The Edinburgh Strangler" lie in Rebus's buried past. I particularly love the complexities of the juxtapositions between Rebus's cynical dark thoughts and his inability to stop trying to make the world a better place.
