I usually like Ian Rankin very much, he is on of my 5 preferred authors. Yet I could not get to the end this time.
I do not want anyone to think this is a critic of the book, not at all.
But I am from Denmark, so English is a second language to me. This gave me a lot of problems because of this audiobooks narration. It is, from my point of view read in heavily dialected English, and that broke my back.
I think this book should be narrated by another, someone with a more neutral English.
As ever I seem to be in the minority with my opinion of this book. My imagination really wasn't captured by this story, the writing was OK and I love James MacPherson's voice, he narrates very well and is 'up there' among my favourites.
I just got a bit bored by the tale, the characters were all immoral, dishonest, or unbelievable and I had little interest in their lives.

Having read all the rebus books I thought I'd try them on audible,boy I'm glad I have.This is my third one and the best revisit so far.James MacPherson is just perfect as a narrator. This is one of the earlier rebus novels and what stands out on audible is how much dry humour their is in the book that I don't recall when reading it,I don't know if this is just down to the narration but it came as a pleasant surprise. It just goes to show how good an author Rankin is and what a brilliant creation rebus is
