Publisher's Summary

The last people to die in Mary King's Close had been plague victims. But that was in the 1700s. Now a body has been discovered, brutally tortured and murdered, in Edinburgh's buried city. Inspector John Rebus, ex-army, spots a paramilitary link.

It is August in Edinburgh, the Festival is in full swing. No one wants to contemplate terrorism in the thronging city streets. Special Branch personnel are interested, however, and Rebus finds himself seconded to an elite police unit with the mission of smashing whatever terrorist cell may exist. But the victim turns out to be a gangster's son, and the gangster wants revenge on his own terms.

    "Complicated"
    What did you like best about Mortal Causes? What did you like least?

    This is the first in this series I have read and I found it very confusing


    If you’ve listened to books by Ian Rankin before, how does this one compare?

    this is the first


    Did James Macoherson do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    very heavy scottish accent did not help the confurison. I later listened to an earlier book with a different narrator and quite enjoyed it


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    NO
