Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“One character jostling Rebus for center stage is, of course, Edinburgh itself. Several Edinburghs, in fact. The city the tourist sees, the one the romantics see, and the one that Rebus sees: ‘a state of mind, a juggling of criminal thoughts and baser instincts.’ Once more, Rankin renders it in all its complexity. Terrific.” Observer (London)
“Rankin’s brilliant evocation of a moody Edinburgh, deeply human characters and labyrinthine plot give dimension to this always absorbing series…Readers won’t be able to skim this dark, densely written novel, but they won’t want to. Artfully placed red herrings, a large cast of multifaceted characters and a gripping pace will keep them engrossed. And Rebus is a character whose devils and idiosyncrasies will leave them eager for more.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“The suspense builds to a remarkably exciting finale. Best of all, though, is the ever-deepening, ever-darkening portrait of the aging Rebus, the antiorganization man trapped in a world where mavericks are an endangered species—except at a few ‘small, smoky bars’ where they sip whiskey with the other dinosaurs.” Booklist (starred review)
“Gillies, with an accessible brogue and steady pacing, ably portrays the prickly Scottish detective in this dark, complex thriller.” Booklist (starred audio review)
“Like Rebus, readers will find no city more beautiful than Edinburgh, no locale more intriguing than Arthur’s Seat—and no characters in the genre more provocative or sharply delineated than Rankin’s ongoing cast.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Combining complicated multiple plotlines with finely drawn characters and fascinating Scottish lore and setting, Rankin once again proves himself a master of the gritty British crime novel.” Library Journal
