Let It Bleed | [Ian Rankin]

Let It Bleed

Detective Inspector John Rebus is not a man easily intimidated, so when political heavyweights start to lean on the dour, moralistic Edinburgh detective to stop an investigation, Rebus doggedly digs in and follows the case as it moves from embezzlement to murder and finally to conspiracy at the highest level of government.

    "It's Samuel GiIles again"

    Rankin and Rebus really start making a great series by the time they find their way into this installment (book 7); however, this is still, I think, Samuel Gilles narrating. The man is a very competent narrator, but he does not seem to be the voice of Rebus, especially as the Rebus character grows more complex in the course of the series. Also, he doesn't get the tone (vocal or literary) of the the story right, to my ears. Unfortunately most of the unabridged Rebus novels on Audible are narrated by Gilles. They'd be a much better listen if James Macpherson (or almost anyone else) was narrating! I'd never read Rankin but will listen to everything Audible's got, so I'll settle for Gilles because Rankin's Rebus et. al. still makes better than average listening entertainment-- unabridged (I found the couple of abridgements I tried to hear Macpherson narrate very choppy editions).

    And - becasue I listened to Rankin's Exit Music (Rebus' last) from iTunes rather than Audible due to Cdn$ difference - and I can't recommend that book on its proper page -- Can I just throw in here that Exit Music is a 5 star conclusion to this great series (and it's not Samuel Gilles, either).

    "Narrator got in the way"

    I love Ian Rankin and am a devout anglophile. But this guy (it's NOT Cynthia Darlow, by the way) somehow obstructed the narrative.
