Publisher's Summary

When a close colleague is brutally attacked, Inspector John Rebus is drawn into a case involving a hotel fire, an unidentified body, and a long forgotten night of terror and murder. Pursued by dangerous ghosts and tormented by the coded secrets of his colleague's notebook, Rebus must piece together the most complex and confusing of jigsaws. But not everyone wants the puzzle solved - perhaps not even Rebus himself.

Good book, poor reading

Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Book to be better than the print version?

I think it is a great book,and I like Ian Rankin very much. Bit the narrator has a very clear accent, so if you a not scottish, it can be hard to understand the narration at times.

Not his best

Not the best Rebus. Long and complicated story with too many coincidences. But an enjoyable listen thanks to excellent narrator.
