Publisher's Summary

"And in Edinburgh of all places. I mean, you never think of that sort of thing happening in Edinburgh, do you?"That sort of thing is the brutal abduction and murder of two young girls. And now a third is missing, presumably gone to the same sad end. Detective Sergeant John Rebus, smoking and drinking too much, his own daughter spirited away by his estranged wife, is one of many policemen hunting the killer. Then, the messages begin: knotted string and matchstick crosses taunt Rebus with a puzzle only he can solve.


What the Critics Say

"Suspenseful riddling, with exemplary eye to the plod of police through civic jungle." (Sunday Times)

If you like British Murder Mysteries...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This was a great listen. The reader was so good at putting different characteristics to the different people in the story that I often thought I was listening to a performance of many actors.

I like the story. It was a gruesome topic but it was not gory. The plot was challenging and interesting. The author did a great job describing the location of the story and the characters that populated it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
