Publisher's Summary

The leaders of the free world descend on Scotland for an international conference, and every cop in the country is needed for front-line duty - except one. John Rebus' reputation precedes him, and his bosses don't want him anywhere near Presidents Bush and Putin, which explains why he's manning an abandoned police station when a call comes in.

During a preconference dinner at Edinburgh Castle, a delegate has fallen to his death. Accident, suicide, or something altogether more sinister? And is it linked to a grisly find close to the site of the gathering? Are the world's most powerful men at risk from a killer? While the government and secret services attempt to hush the whole thing up, Rebus knows he has only 72 hours to find the answers.

    "I didn't want it to end!"
    Where does The Naming of the Dead rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Recently? It's #1. I've read all the John Rebus novels but long enough ago that I'm enjoying them anew - provided James McPherson is the reader. Everything is worth paying attention to.


    Any additional comments?

    Rankin's dry wit is far more evident when his books are read by McPherson.
