    A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat, spreadeagled, cross-like on the floor, between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. 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 tourists. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind.

    Jina says: "Loved book, love the author. HATE abridged books"
    "Ian Rankin writes with bare knuckles"

    Story
    Where does Hide and Seek rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hide and Seek?

    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


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not a bloody thing.


    Any additional comments?

    You write them Ian and I'll read them. Thanks pal.
