I am reading all the Rebus books in order, and look forward to this one. Yes, Cafferty and Rebus are arch enemies and of course I always cheer for Rebus.

I have loved all of these books, and for God's sake have loved Rebus. I must certainly be in the late stages of dementia, but I swear I thought that Rankin killed him off several books ago.

I'm never sure if I like Rebus or not, but always come back for more. I'm reserving this one at the library.

Thank you for this review - it sounds as good as the previous books. I love these stories, and I too love Rebus. He's always Ken Stott now in my mind's eye.


I like Ken Stott's portrayal of Rebus, and I understand that Ian Rankin approves as well. But in the books, Rebus is ex-army, and tried out for the SAS. Ken Stott does not look ex-SAS.
