FEATURING AN EXCLUSIVE INTRODUCTION READ BY IAN RANKIN.

The 2nd Inspector Rebus novel from 'arguably Scotland's finest living writer' (The Times)

A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat, spreadeagled, cross-like on the floor, between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above.

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. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Greg | 4/27/2011

    " Good second book in Rankin's Rebus series. Put it down for a little while due to time issues, and picking it up I knew exactly where I was in the story. As always, Rankin gives a great portrait of gritty Edinburgh, with interesting characters and a nice sense of wordplay. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jean | 3/9/2011

    " 2.5 stars. Still trying to get into this John Rebus series. I like the setting (Edinburgh), and the detective character is alright. Will give one more in the series a try. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K | 1/7/2011

    " No one else tells stories like this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 astrangerhere | 12/2/2010

    " Not as good as the first Rebus, but the character is strong enough that it won't deter me from continuing in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John | 9/3/2010

    " This confirmed I'm going to be burning through all these Rebus novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dasha | 8/28/2010

    " Better than the first one..... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianne | 7/30/2010

    " First time with this author, will probably read more in this Rebus series. Scots have the same dark probs as every where else in the world. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 7/26/2010

    " Not bad, but it didn't exactly grab me either. Rebus is a much more competent detective than he was in the first book, but he still seems to stumble across solutions by coincidence and luck rather than come up with them by his own skill. I'm not picking up the next one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 7/19/2010

    " So, as much as I liked the first John Rebus book, they DO get better and better. Love the quick moving plot. Love John Rebus as a vulnerable sorta mangy detective - Columbo all over...really like being in Edinburgh for a change "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen | 7/8/2010

    " Inspector Rebus in Scotland. I've enjoyed reading his books and also listening to some on audio disks. If you enjoy Connelly, you'll like Ina Rankin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kieran | 7/8/2010

    " Same as Knots and Crosses. Rebus is not really into music yet. My home PC is fucked so it will be a while until I get the replacement and then I'll 'hear' a few more Rebus novels... I started with the lates instead of making a progression, although this is not exactly necessary in this case. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ty | 7/6/2010

    " Rebus is pretty tough and he rations his cigarettes, which is pretty spot on. "
