"Rebus is back"
The interplay of the personalities makes for superb listening.
The ending had a really good twist to it.
The time went by quickly when listening to the story. It is well read.
Having read all previous Rebus novels, this is the first I have listened to without having read it previously. It was fab to be able to get my housework don't and enjoy Ian Rankin's engaging work.
Having Rebus back is a joy!
I really enjoyed James Macpherson and would happily listen to him reading again, but I have to agree with another reviewer that the accent was just not quiet right for Rebus.
The relationship between Rebus and Siobhan, which has altered now that he is out of the job.
"Great if you like Rebus but not his best"
I am a self confessed Rebus fan and have read them all. Therefore, its no surprise I pounced on this when it came out. As ever its really well written and flows like the rest of his books. The crossing of Rebus with a character from another book on the internal affairs dept is also interesting. If you haven't read Rebus books before - don't start with this one because a lot of it will go over your head. If you are a Rebus fan then clearly get it!
"Ian Rankin Does it Again!!"
This was a fantastic story and Rebus was back to his begrudging best – the story flowed really well, could stop listening and the performance was really enjoyable, would recommended this for both die hard Rankin fans as well as lovers of crime fiction in general! Top Book!!
Excellent return for Rebus and his excellent style of deduction.
Naration wonderful with all Scottish accents
"Why use a "Taggart" actor to read a "Rebus" novel"
Couldn't quite understand why James MacPherson was used as narrator when he played the lead role in Taggart for so long. Just sounded like a poor version of Taggart but set in Edinburgh.
This i another great Rebus read. It has a the usual characters and comments, reassuring and enjyable
"Standing in another mans grave"
This is a must read which I recommend to all those out there who love to read anything from the pen of Ian Rankin,this was my first "enjoyed every minute"
"Great return for Rebus"
Rebus is back in his usual contradictory style where it seems that pretty much any means justify getting an end result. I really enjoyed this return for Rebus although it took my husband (another Rebus fan) longer to get into the story. This unabridged version warrants a bit of a longer stint listening at the beginning to really get into the story but once you do the case is intriguing with many twists and turns while you also get to spend a bit more time with Rebus and his friends...and enemies!
Really enjoyed this Rebus audio book and found myself not wanting to turn it off. I found the narrator very easy to follow. I found the story line to be very interesting to follow and although sometimes I could predict things that would happen this was in a way that made me smile and not in a cheesy way where you think we could all see that coming!! if that makes sense??
