Detective John Rebus' city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders…and he's tied to a maniac by an invisible knot of blood. As the ghoulish killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus cannot stop the feverish shrieks from within his own mind. Because he isn't just one cop trying to catch a killer - he's the man who's got all the pieces to the puzzle…

I've got to say I was definitely not impressed. Firstly, I disliked Rebus intensely. He's a self-righteous judgmental ass. And definitely not all that bright. Does he improve later on?
I also found the reason for the killings and kidnappings a stretch. And again judgmental.
The constant reference to Rebus's religion annoyed me no end, since he'd immediately turn around and do something he'd then term sinful.
I did love the descriptions of the city and the atmosphere was nicely noir.
