Once again we join Detective Inspector John Rebus in the solving of another mystery in the city of Edinburgh. A junkie, dead in a squat, the body laid out with ritual precision. A girl with a past, running wild and running scared. Another gripping thriller from Ian Rankin. 1 MP3-CD complete and unabridged, read by Ewan Stewart.
A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat spread-eagled, cross-like on the floor, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. But who cares? These are the dregs, a squalid society of addicts and derelicts; people long since disconnected from a society that is preoccupied with the new businesses and the new home bringing prosperity to a city concentrating on advertising its quality of life. Just another dead addict, until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to the tourists. Rebus senses something evil, something too dangerous to ignore that has to be investigated and brought up into the light. Something that may prove to be very closely connected to the bright new world above. It is an investigation that will find him not just trying to solve a crime but fighting for his life.
