Last seen in ‘Exit Music’, published in 2007, the retired Inspector Rebus returns to his crime-solving best in this latest novel as he follows up leads in his new job with the cold-case unit in Edinburgh. His cantankerous manner and unique methods continue to bring him into conflict with his superiors, particularly this time with Malcolm Fox of the Edinburgh Police internal affairs unit, but they do bring results when everything else has failed.

When discussing the return of his hero of the 18 previous Rebus novels written over 20 years, Ian Rankin commented, “I felt there was unfinished business between the two of us. He had never really gone away but was working for Edinburgh’s cold case unit. And I knew I had a case that would be a perfect fit for him.”

I hope there are more to come!
