Publisher's Summary

An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme: a racist attack, or something else? Rebus is drawn into the case, but has other problems: his old police station has closed, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. As Rebus investigates, he must visit an asylum seekers' detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love....
Siobhan has problems of her own. A teenager has disappeared from home and Siobhan is drawn into helping the family, which means travelling too close to the web of a convicted rapist. Then there are two skeletons - a woman and an infant - found buried beneath a concrete cellar floor in Fleshmarket Close. The scene begins to look like an elaborate stunt - but whose, and for what purpose? And how can it tie to the murder on the unforgiving housing-scheme known as Knoxland?

I love the Rebus stories and unabridged are best.

Cannot fault the story (usual high Rankin quality) but not always happy with Cotcher's accents. He does Edinburgh fine but Brummie, London and Aussie are less believable. Far and away the best Rebus reader is James McPherson in my opinion.

Love Rebus

This is another classic rebus novel, really enjoyed the 2 independent stories going on at once and how they stories end up coming together.

Enthralling and good narration.

Definitely worth a listen if you like Rebus.
