Publisher's Summary

It begins with a phone call. Gordon Reeve's brother has been found dead in his car in San Diego. The car was locked from the inside; a gun was in his hand. In the US to identify the body, Gordon realises that his brother has been murdered. What's more, it's soon obvious that his own life is in danger.

It looks like his nemesis is back...

Excellent introduction to this author!

I had never read Ian Rankin prior to purchasing this audiobook, but something about the synopsis offered by Audible caught my attention. When I finally bought it, I was not disappointed.

The main character was well-developed, and if you spend as much time inside your head as I do, you can very readily relate to Gordon Reeve. Rankin reveals a little at a time about his protagonist, and each revelation is important to the further development of the story,

The antagonist is also well-developed, and quite chillingly believable in his "evil". I may never again hear "Row, row, row your boat" without getting chills down my spine!

Steven Pacey did an excellent job with the narration, giving each character a distinct voice and personality, even those that required a bit of a brogue because they were Scots. His pacing was excellent, and he kept the suspense going where he should with perfect timing. Even during some very technical descriptions of pesticides and their effects he did not become boring or pedantic.

A good mystery, complimented by some fine reading.
