Excellent!! HIghly recommend.

The best thing about Rankin is his captivating writing. I was interested throughout the book, and like the new characters very much. Every time I see a new Rankin book, it leaps off the book list and onto my Nook post haste.

Fans of the John Rebus novels took a shine to Ian Rankin, as I did, so much so that now his name is bigger than the title of his books. But he has yet to write one that matched the interest of the Rebus novels, and The Impossible Dead does not either. It goes off to a very slow start, does pick up, then just crashes to the floor with a very unsatisfying finale. We are taken on a history tour of radical Scotland, and then led to believe that some of these same folks are not who they appear to be in their modern statuses. I might have believed a bit of it, but Rankin went far beyond credibility.

    Don't Bother

    Not as good as his past books. I have been a fan since his first book but I might not buy any of his next books.
