About this deal

bestselling author of A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES 'Ian Rankin is a genius' Lee Child 'Britain's best crime novelist' DAILY EXPRESS.

Meanwhile, Tracy reports that she's being followed, and Rebus notices that he's being followed as well. The reviews and comments posted on this site reflect the opinions of individual posters and do not reflect the views of Cannonball Read.I found it hard to keep track of who did what and why (I’m still not sure who put the rat poison in the heroine, or whether it was even fully disclosed). I also think of Rebus as fairly similar to Harry Bosch, Michael Connelly's famous LA detective - they share a lot of personal and professional traits.

My frank assessment: Apart from hindering flow of reading, looking up in 90 percent of the cases did not help much in my understanding of plot development.In reading some reviews, I now understand that the future John Rebus is, as one reviewer put it, “surly, petulant, impulsive and distrusting. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Rebus’s profligate drinking, and woeful attempts to limit his smoking habit are amusing at first, but become tedious.

But his Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't happy at yet more interference, and Rebus finds himself dealing with racial prejudice as well as the predations of a violent maniac. Because Rebus is involved in a drug case his boss, Superintendent Watson, invites the detective to lunch with a few Edinburgh bigwigs who are involved with an anti-drug campaign. He has been recently promoted to Detective InFrom then on she was regarded with a mixture of suspicion and fascination by her God-fearing community. Just another dead addict – until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists. I know there are about 20 other Rebus books out there so I’m taking my time, but it’s been a while since I found a series that truly interests me, and I’m curious to see where Rebus will take me next. It's the picture of the city itself which will stay with me the longest – the real Edinburgh, warts and all, but Rankin's love of it shines through. Good to hear you’re enjoying my book reviews as they are my least read posts by some considerable distance!

A Christie's specialist may contact you to discuss this lot or to notify you if the condition changes prior to the sale. Rebus just has a feel about the scene of death and decides to sniff around a bit more than would normally seem necessary in a case seemingly as cut and dried as this. The goods do not need to be in their original packaging however in a sellable condition, and at your own cost and risk. Finance is provided by PayPal Credit (a trading name of PayPal UK Ltd, Whittaker House, Whittaker Avenue, Richmond-Upon-Thames, Surrey, United Kingdom, TW9 1EH).

Hyde into then-modern Edinburgh ("one reviewer 'got it'"), and with this book he began to like Rebus as a character and thought he could use him as a recurring mouthpiece for stories about his views on Scotland.
