Inspector John Rebus, a former soldier, is now an investigator for the Edinburgh police force. He is haunted by personal demons and is fond of cigarettes and alcohol. As the city is gripped by a serial killer who targets preadolescent girls, Rebus soon realizes that his past may play a part in the killer's motives. This gritty police procedural, rich in atmosphere and character, is expertly narrated by Michael Page.
VERDICT First published in 1987, this was the first novel in Rankin's popular series. It will attract Rankin fans who may want to experience it in audio, as well as new fans of the series.
