This novel is a bit slow starting, compared to say Fleshmarket Alley, but is a good, solid representation of Rebus. The characters are well defined and nicely flawed and the reader does a decent job at separating the various voices. This book meanders a bit during the story going off on seemingly random tangents, but I enjoy how the characters deal with the underbelly of Edinburgh enough to see it through. If you are needing a solid Rebus fix after hitting the more drama/story driven books, this will do it.

I really love this series. I've probably written that in previous reviews.
Rebus is amazing. Not the most politically correct or as straight-laced as many of the police and he certainly doesn't always make the best decisions. (Lorna?? Really??) But he has great cop sense and is able to figure things out. This story of three deaths proves all those things.
Am I the only one who likes Cafferty a little bit?
The narration, for some reason, was not up to par but still good. As I'm bingeing on the Rebus audiobooks I'm beginning to think with a Scottish burr. 😃
