Fleshmarket Close: Inspector Rebus, Book 15 | [Ian Rankin]

Fleshmarket Close: Inspector Rebus, Book 15

An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme. Is it a racist attack, or something else? Rebus is drawn into the case, but he has other problems: his old police station has closed, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. As Rebus investigates, he must visit an asylum seekers' detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love. Meanwhile, Siobhan has problems of her own.

Publisher's Summary

An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme. Is it a racist attack, or something else? Rebus is drawn into the case, but he has other problems: his old police station has closed, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. As Rebus investigates, he must visit an asylum seekers' detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love....

Siobhan has problems of her own. A teenager has disappeared from home, and Siobhan is drawn into helping the family, which means travelling too close towards the web of a convicted rapist. Then there are two skeletons, a woman and an infant, found buried beneath a concrete cellar floor in Fleshmarket Close. The scene begins to look like an elaborate stunt, but whose, and for what purpose? And how can it tie to the murder on the unforgiving housing-scheme known as Knoxland?

    "Terrific story, wonderfully narrated"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fleshmarket Close to be better than the print version?

    NO


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Rebus. Well crafted character


    What about James Macpherson’s performance did you like?

    His voice is never dull, his voice is lilting.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very good book to read and see as a Tv series.
    James MacPhersons is not only a very good actor, but excellent at narrating these novels.

    "Rankin magic"

    Personally this was my least favourite Rankin book so far. This is solely because of the storyline which I found a bit dark and perhaps too political(?).
    Another good listen though which should please the Rebus fans.
