Publisher's Summary

John Rebus is on a train from Edinburgh to London, where he has been drafted for his expertise in the modus operandi of serial killers. The Wolfman could be his toughest case yet - a serial killer named by the press due to a terrifying trademark of taking a bite from each victim.Rebus' Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't too happy at yet another interference in the investigation - especially from an upstart jock hounding him at every turn. So when Rebus is offered a psychological profile of the murderer by an attractive lady psychologist, he is happy to accept. But in finding an ally, he may have given his enemies an easy means of attack.

Enjoyable Listen

I've read books by Rankin before and enjoyed them. This one did not disappoint me either. Just the right mix of amusing and serious story lines. I also enjoyed the narrator. I'm no expert on accents, but i thought he provided a perfect voice for Rebus. I'll definitely download more of the series. For reference, other authors I've enjoyed recently on audio include John Sandford and Daniel Silva. (If you've read those authors too, you can tell if we have similar tastes.)

NOT Ian Rankin at his best

If you have never heard any of the books by Ian Rankin which feature Detective Inspector John Rebus, please do yourself the favor of starting with some of the more recent books. Then, if you want to work backwards I think you will be surprised to see how much Rankin's writing and character development improved over the years. I did not enjoy this book and would have never bought another Rebus book had I not begun with a later release but listen repeatedly to later selections. I'm so sorry the series has ended with the book Exit Music !
