John Rebus is on a train from Edinburgh to London, where he has been drafted for his expertise in the modus operandi of serial killers. The Wolfman could be his toughest case yet - a serial killer named by the press due to a terrifying trademark of taking a bite from each victim.

Rebus' Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't too happy at yet another interference in the investigation - especially from an upstart jock hounding him at every turn. So when Rebus is offered a psychological profile of the murderer by an attractive lady psychologist, he is happy to accept. But in finding an ally, he may have given his enemies an easy means of attack. Download and start listening now!

    " My first beach read on vacation - great mystery... really liking Rebus :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janeb7 | 2/11/2014

    " I think my enjoyment of mysteries comes from my father, who would loan me ones he'd read when I was younger. Despite the fact that I like mysteries, I rarely read them--I'd rather watch Sherlock, I can't quite bring myself to read Mary Higgins Clark, etc. What I've read of the Inspector Rebus series thus far I've liked (although to be fair I've only read two)> I liked this book much more than Knots and Crosses but to be fair that may just have been the first novel jitters in Knots and Crosses. I enjoyed this one quite a bit. A fast read and a good old-fashioned murder mystery/creepy serial killer story. The pacing is nice and Rebus is a nice combination of insecurity, wit, world-wearyness and bravado. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 2/8/2014

    " Ugh. I am generally a fan of Ian Rankin but this book was uninteresting, predictable, and just plain sucktastic. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Suzanne | 1/13/2014

    " I thought this was fine. I am still learning to like Insp Rebus as a character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debra | 1/7/2014

    " One of Ian Rankin's earlier Inspector Rebus novels. The character is nowhere near as developed as later on, but this book fills in some interesting early history about Rebus. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel Bratell | 12/23/2013

    " Inspector Rebus is finally developing some character. The character I'm used to from the later books (which I read before this one). It is still not quite as good as some later books, but this will clearly keep any fan of John Rebus satisfied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Poietes | 12/21/2013

    " Now this is the Rebus who I have come to adore. Snarky, smart, and impatient. The smartest person in the room, and more than willing to let everyone know. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frank Dahai | 12/18/2013

    " Page turner but not right for Rebus "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 12/17/2013

    " It's 1992 and Rebus goes to Scotland Yard to help find the "wolfman." Great story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooks | 11/24/2013

    " Rebus in London. Good read as always. Strong main character - with his flaws. Felt like a hunt, good twist. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 9/22/2013

    " Another great Rankin mystery. Rebus travels to London to solve a serial murder. Brief love interest, of course. Bloody, of course. True flawed Rebus, of course. Another well written stsroy by Rankin. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joan | 8/30/2013

    " Always a good mystery read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christy | 3/17/2013

    " It was good enough that I'll probably read the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lise Petrauskas | 10/5/2012

    " I enjoy the Rebus novels. This one was enjoyable, if a little over the top. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 7/29/2012

    " Fun story. They are looking for a serial killer that nicknamed "wolfman". Little do they know that it appears to be a woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/19/2012

    " A really nice read. Third in the Rebus series and the best one I've read. Beautifully written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Abcdarian | 2/22/2012

    " 3-1/2 stars. Rebus is seconded to London, leading to some welcome amusing bits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roxane | 1/5/2012

    " Off to London to hunt a serial killer called the Wolfman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Agnes Muscoreil | 12/20/2011

    " I like Ian Rankin, this being the second of his books I have read. He keeps the story interesting and moving along, and I like Rebus. Good tale, I'll get more of Rankin's books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Smith | 7/27/2011

    " Ian Rankin is an awesome writer! i enjoyed this book from start to finish, it is the first Rebus Book i have read an i intend to read the others now! =) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra | 6/15/2011

    " It was scary, good scary. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eddie | 5/10/2011

    " I have still not finished it, but can't escape from the thought that Lisa, the psychologist and "amante" from Rebus may be the Wolfman. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 3/4/2011

    " Not a typical Rebus book, this one - it was more along the lines of some of the American mystery writers, with Rebus after a serial killer in London.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 12/6/2010

    " I was expecting more of noir type detective novel, but this was more of a straight forward mystery/crime novel. It didn't quite grab me, but it was a decent story and the characters were interesting enough. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ange | 12/2/2010

    " Fun story. They are looking for a serial killer that nicknamed "wolfman". Little do they know that it appears to be a woman. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 11/12/2010

    " Nice twist having Rebus go to London to work on a case. As usual, tense and exciting. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 9/12/2010

    " Rebus ends up in London tracking a hungry serial killer. I just love Rebus' lone wolf approach as he ignores the rules and pushes through as he sees fit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joana | 9/11/2010

    " I wasn't enjoying this book as much as the first 2 books of the Series, but the ending is quite unexpected. Even though, I was expecting a bit more... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Marsha | 9/5/2010

    " Horrible gender stereotypes and not even that great a story. Kinda wanted to know how ended, but end did not blow me away. Rebus doesn't seem that compelling a character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 9/3/2010

    " I burn through these Detective Rebus novels...and this was no exception. I did not like the "twist" in this particular book as much as others so far. Still a good read though. I'm glad I got the next 3 books in the series for a total of 65 cents. "

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

    " So Rankin is thoroughly warmed up now and humming along with his Rebus stories. So far I haven't been disappointed, but I am going to take a break from these so I can come back to them when I can't think of something to read and want a safe bet "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 7/3/2010

    " Ugh. I am generally a fan of Ian Rankin but this book was uninteresting, predictable, and just plain sucktastic. "
