But the further they dig, the more Rebus and his colleague DS Siobhan Clarke become convinced that they are dealing with something more than a random attack: especially after a particularly nasty second killing. Meanwhile, a brutal and premeditated assault on local gangster "Big Ger" Cafferty sees Rebus in the frame. Has the inspector taken a step too far in tying up those loose ends? Only a few days shy of the end to his long, inglorious career, will Rebus even make it that far?

"Good book - not impressed with this reading."
Very surprised at the high star rating of this reading. I love the book, (I actually have a signed copy), and am a real Rankin fan, so downloaded this to listen to in the car. However the reading is very flaky - the reader sounds irritatingly sarcastic throughout, can't do an English accent to save his life, so that Siobhan Clark sounds extremely weird, and some characters seem to change their voices during the course of the story - notably the young volunteer constable (I won't spoil the plot). Most disappointing - not your fault, Mr Rankin, but a poor reading.
