    "Ian Rankin Rocks!"

    It takes a little bit to get the plot thickened and going, but then ~ WATCH OUT, 'cause you will not be able to stop listening. Very good book, as always, from Rankin :-)

    "Not the best but still entertaining"

    Another good novel from the Rebus series but this one seemed to meander through the plot and investigation. Not as solid as some but still an enjoyable listen.
    Narrator was good but I have a personal preference for James Macpherson.

    An overall good audio book experience. Rebus, well-done performance, and a good mystery. Enjoyable listen.

    "Fantastic"

    Tom Cotcher is Rebus, great story, as good as if it was read by Rebus himself
