Michael Weston wants to know why the police were on his tail so quickly. His first task is to find the writer of his pay cheque, the second is to make sure he doesn't get caught. Because one thing's for certain: the longer he sticks around to find out, the bigger the risk of making mistakes, revealing his cover and maybe losing his life.

"The nonstop action, copious violence and arcane details about weaponry and forensics will please thriller junkies." (Publishers Weekly)
I didn't care for this story. It seemed fake - all the James Bond like travelling all over the place, killing people without conscience, the wild western USA, fake accents etc. No wonder Rankin used a pen name.
"Cracking Ian Rankin"
What more is there to say except this is not an Inspector Rebus story and Ian Rankin proves thats hes more than just Edinburgh and whiskey and DI Rebus with all his forgivable flaws.
Well worth a listen.
