A colleague’s suicide. Pedophiles. A missing child. A serial killer. You never know your luck, muses Rebus. Driven by instinct and experience, he searches for connections, against official skepticism. But at night, unsoothed by whiskey, Rebus faces his ghosts, and the prospect of his daughter’s possibly permanent paralysis. Soldiering through dank, desperate slums and the tiny flats of the Scottish chic, Rebus uncovers a chain of crime, deceit, and hidden sins, and knows it’s himself he’s really trying to save.

    " I didn't like it. Gave it the 100-page chance and gave up after that. Also, I decided to give it two stars because although I didn't like the book, not many authors have the courage to take on pedophillia in their books "

    " The Rebus story moves on and just gets darker with each book. These are not "feel good" stories and the continuing characters in the series have weaknesses and secrets and the ghosts of the past are haunting them all. In this entry,as in most of the Rebus books, there is a lot going on and none of it provides easy answers for Rebus and his mates. He is assigned to watch the comings and goings of a recently released and very clever serial killer who is also suspected in the murder of the niece of a retired police officer. But that is just the easy part.....a pedophile is now living in the community, rousing the residents to violence; a fellow officer has committed suicide for no apparent reason; and Rebus's former girlfriend's son is missing. Most of the threads are pulled together but there are some questions left unanswered and the epilogue may set the stage for another book. It is not a pretty picture but it certainly is a good read. "

    " Rankin is always good for a gritty detective yarn, full of dark secrets and bad folks. This one seems to be about three stories in one, but I'm sure they'll all come together in the end! "
