Years after watching the BBC produced "Rebus" programs on Masterpiece Mystery, I decided to read the books. The general gloomy overtone and wonderful use of the English language impart tales of the criminal side of life in a country that most people think of as tea-drinking, staid and proper. You encounter complicated mysteries as well as the complicated workings of a man trying to understand himself as a reflection of the heinous underground world of Edinburgh. Rankin is a master of the use of vernacular to set a tone and a "picture" of the people and landscape of the Fife area of Bonny Scotland. He's works are griping and difficult to put down. A must read in every mystery lover's library.

Second in the Rebus series and Rankin must have been pressured into slapping this ridiculous turkey together. Pass this one by.

This is another great book by Ian Rankin. The book is set in Edinburgh, Scotland and has plenty of local detail. Rebus is a very well developed and very much three dimensional character. I am glad Ian Rankin has brought Rebus back in another book as he is too good a character to leave by the wayside.

The Ian Rankin books, especially this one, are MUST READS! DI Rebus comes to life in the plots in which nothing is clear until the very end! It is difficult to believe that DI Rebus isn't a real cop!! I highly recommend you try this one!

Ian Rankin mixes the Scottish working class with an intense murder mystery novel in this teenage-occult novel. This book is extremely well done and I breezed thru it. I loved the references to the previous book "Knots and Crosses" as well as his subtle mix of humor. It's not overly violent or grusome. The chapters are a long and the book isn't broken up as easily as Knots and Crosses but the book is excellent. The second half of the book is especially good. I've become a big fan of Ian Rankin and his style of writing. I'm currently reading Tooth and Nail and I love how he continues to briefly mention the previous stories, which adds to character development. As the review reads on the back "You can't go wrong with Rankin"

Having read most of the Inspector Rebus series, I chose to re-read the second installment of Ian Rankin's sensational creation. John Rebus early in his career is quite a treat, having just finished Exit Music, #17,the last in the Rebus canon. While investigating a suspicious death in an Edinburgh housing development, Rebus finds a junkie laying in an almost crucified position admist paraphernalia of Satanic worship. What looks like an apparant overdose to others only raises the suspicion of murder to Inspector Rebus. A killer runs and hides throught the city, of Edinburgh pursued by John Rebus who we see failing at much in his personal life. He toils with many things such as relationships, moral actions, and finding a new church but the reader quickly realizes that police work is John Rebus' soul.

Another good yarn by this well-respected British writer. His Inspector John Rebus is an interesting character with a hard-bitten exterior, quick with his wits, words and at times his fists, all packaged up with a very human center. The locale is Edinburgh, Scotland as absorbing a geographical place as the more familiar Oxford town in England. Here the Inspector deals with a mysterious murder with hints of satanism but ends with something more horrific and more timely. The story presents our world as we might easily recognize it and that is the connection which makes this work fun to read. Try the series out and you will enjoy the ride.
