This is the first Ian Rankin book I ever read. It was a very fast read. Interesting plot. Some of his "one-liners" were quite humorous. Made for a very enjoyable read. I liked the character John Rebus so much that I am currently reading second "Rebus" novel "Hide and Seek".

A differunt kind of crime story. More mystery but very will written and a page turner without violent descriptions. If all TV and most movies were like this we would have a nicer world.

This was written in '87 and it was Rankin's first Rebus book.

I've come to this book having read almost all of the other Rebus material. I would say this is Rankin's weakest effort. Although maybe I'm just jaded after wading through all the others.

Frankly, stories featuring a perpetually depressed, alcoholic misanthrope can get kind of old.
