    " If you like detectives that don't follow police procedure you'll enjoy John Rebus, a detective with the police in Edinburg, Scotland. Rebus and his partner, Siobhan Clarke investigate the murders of three criminals in which no one really cares if the killer is caught. The investigation takes place during the G8 summit in Edinburg. The ending will absolutely knock your socks off. "

    " I L-O-V-E the Rebus books. Maybe because my husband is from Scotland! But they are taut, suspenseful and smart. Rebus pulls you into the story with simply a nod. I read many of these books when home recovering from an illness (on both audio book and printed book) and loved all of them. I love the flawed character of Rebus with both his hard nd soft edges - brilliant. "

    " A murder (actually several) set amidst the demonstrations and riots of the G8 Summit near Edinburgh in 2005. I gather Rankin novels are often dark, or at least portray a dark image of Edinburgh (this was my first Rankin read) but this one struck me as somewhat lighthearted and tongue in cheek, what with cameo appearances by George Bush (dangerous man on a bicycle) and Bob Geldoff. Nevertheless the plot is intricate and the protagonist iconoclastic and curmudgeonly (do all British police detectives come with major character flaws? e.g. Colin Dexter's Insp. Morse). A good read for fans of crime/mystery fiction. "

    " Great story set during the G8 summit in Edinburgh, 2005. "
