A murdered oil rig worker. A copycat serial killer dubbed, “Johnny Bible.” And a reopened investigation that doesn’t bode well for Detective John Rebus or his mentor, Inspector Lawson Geddes. Rebus’s Scotland, along with his malt-soaked psyche, is riddled with trouble. Now he’s got to tie up the loose ends if he wants to save his job - or live to see another dark Edinburgh day.

I enjoyed this Inspector Rebus more than the previous ones I have listened to. The plot was intriguing and the characters interesting.
Yes, I wanted to know how everything tied together and what the resolution of the cases was.
I enjoy Michael Page. He's second only to George Guidall.
The opening scene was gripping.
Rankin has developed as a writer since his first few books.
Good ride in some ways. Rebus on the wagon for once was interesting and so was the Aberdeen focus. But the ride ended up taking me nowhere. Two criminals with a strange link are at the heart of the book and in the end there's no satisfaction to be had in the hunt for either.
