Description

Rebus is able to arrest Hyde's owner and several high-profile members, but to his disgust all die suspicious deaths while imprisoned: the powers-that-be are covering it up to prevent scandal. There are still idiots who believe that covid-19 isn’t real and that vaccines will cause autism, infertility, and the desire to vote Democrat. There’s also a new Superintendent to deal with and he’s co-opted John onto a small team looking at the wider issue of the city’s growing drug problems. He is corrupt, self-righteous, hypocritical, misogynistic, violent, egomaniacal, bullying, and delusional.

If talking about the topic of international sex trafficking or the global big-business industry of pedophelia and child pornography bothers you, stop reading this review immediately. From the iconic Number One bestseller Ian Rankin, comes one of the must-read books of the year: A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES 'Genius . Writing Hide and SeekIn the Exile on Princes Street foreword to Rebus: The Early Years, Rankin says this was his second attempt at updating Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr. I found it hard to keep track of who did what and why (I’m still not sure who put the rat poison in the heroine, or whether it was even fully disclosed).

Newly-promoted Inspector John Rebus has been taken off normal duties ready to head up a new drugs task force, but while he waits for his new job to start, he gets himself involved in someone else’s business. Having recently read an almost terrible teen romance set in Edinburgh, I was fascinated by how different perspectives can alter the same setting. The contrasts are good – the junkies living in squalid squats close to, but a world away from the tourist Edinburgh which is all that most people see and the financially secure business men. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. It doesn't look like murder until Detective Inspector John Rebus starts to chip away at the indifference and sleaze that's covering the case.

I have a big complaint about Ian Rankin’s early Rebus novels, and it is a complaint that continues to taint my enjoyment of the series.

Una historia mucho más centrada en la investigación que en la vida personal de Rebus, de la que ya tuvimos detalles en su anterior novela. Book's flaws are limited to a touch of shelf-rubbing on one corner tip, and a small faint discoloration to orange cloth on rear panel (barely visible. But I think I'm beginning to like him more, and plan to continue the series to see how things develop with this character. Here Rankin has created one of the enduring heroes of crime fiction, and what’s really pleasing is that even in this very early book (the series has reached 20 episodes and is still going) the quality is already abundantly clear. My only outstanding books are a handful (I’m not quite sure how many as I’m not absolutely certain which ones I’ve read and which I haven’t) at the start of the series.
