Ian Rankin's characters are so believable because they are, like all of us, so flawed while at the same time trying to be so decent. You do not so much as empathize with them as identify with them and the never ending struggle to be decent in an indecent world. Hide and Seek was no exception and whether you are a devoted fan or a new comer you will be very very pleased with his effort here. Thank you Ian and just keep writing. You help your readers to be a little more human and you can't ask for more from a book.
Rankin writes with bare knuckles so every character hits you like a body blow but I always come back to Rebus with all of his virtues and all of his flaws as my favorite
Not a bloody thing.
You write them Ian and I'll read them. Thanks pal.
