Publisher's Summary

Inspector Rebus Book 4

Gregor Jack, MP, well-liked, young, married to the fiery Elizabeth - to the outside world a very public success story. But Jack's carefully nurtured career plans take a tumble after a 'mistake' during a police raid on a notorious Edinburgh brothel. Then Elizabeth disappears, a couple of bodies float into view where they shouldn't, and a lunatic speaks from his asylum...

Initially Rebus is sympathetic to the MP's dilemma - who hasn't occasionally succumbed to temptation? - but with the disappearance of Jack's wife the glamour surrounding the popular young man begins to tarnish. Someone wants to strip Jack naked and Rebus wants to know why...

    "Love the story, but could not get to the end."

    I usually like Ian Rankin very much, he is on of my 5 preferred authors. Yet I could not get to the end this time.
    I do not want anyone to think this is a critic of the book, not at all.
    But I am from Denmark, so English is a second language to me. This gave me a lot of problems because of this audiobooks narration. It is, from my point of view read in heavily dialected English, and that broke my back.
    I think this book should be narrated by another, someone with a more neutral English.

    "The first 4 covered !!!"

    Having seen an interview with Ian Rankin I decided I'd start from scratch and listen to the whole series. While enjoying this book similarly to the 3rd it is not as well narrated by Samuel Gillies as the first 2 done by James Macpherson (glad to see he is back for the 5th) the first 2 however the story is good with Rebus back in is familiar territory of Edinburgh which is beautifully invoked.



    Overall it's OK.

    "Great story leaves you guessing til the end"
    What made the experience of listening to Strip Jack the most enjoyable?

    The fourth in the Rebus series and the best so far. The story was believable and kept things interesting with lots of subtle twists. Rebus is a very interesting character and his flaws make a nice change from the 'perfect' Jack Reacher.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I quite like DS Brian Holmes, and Gregor Jack one of the key characters was also interesting in the way things developed.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The coffee and scotch discussion in the Supers office were always fun


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    not in one listen but I did get through it in just a couple of days.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good series and this was my favourite yet. it is nice to break up the Bosch and Davenport series with something like this that is a little lighter and has a bit more humour to it.
