Good Rebus book
If you like Rebus, you'll like this book. As the first Rebus book I've heard, it took me a while to get into the story, but was well worth the patience. The characters are nicely flawed and interesting and the story is quite enthralling as well.
The narrator was solid with the accents, but some of the different voices I found a bit irritating, thankfully these were just sideline characters.
The last few hours I couldn't stop listening, quite suspenseful, although the impetus for the murders I found a bit stretched. Try Naming of the Dead as well.

Gotta love Rebus
I read my first Rebus mystery - The Black Book -quite by accident - just happened to pick it up in a Borders. As I was reading it I saw Rankin on a travel show so I got visual a flavor - as it were - of the Edinburgh of Rebus. The Falls is a wonderful listen. It is inticate and all the various lines in the story not only work, but make the story more plausible. Rebus is a Scot of Hamish Macbeth's ilk - only MUCH more sophisticated. Like Maura, I was so entralled in the last few hours that I literally couldn't put down my earphones. I highly recommend this book to fans of Rebus and those who might like to try a new and compelling character and author.
