Publisher's Summary

KNOTS AND CROSSES

Detective John Rebus's city is being terrorized by a baffling series of murders...and he's tied to a maniac by an invisible knot of blood. As the ghoulish killings mount and the tabloid headlines scream, Rebus cannot stop the feverish shrieks from within his own mind. Because he isn't just one cop trying to catch a killer - he's the man who's got all the pieces to the puzzle....

HIDE AND SEEK

In a shadowy, crumbling Edinburgh housing development, a junkie lies dead of an overdose, his body surrounded by signs of Satanic worship. Inspector John Rebus could call it an accident. But won't. Now he's got to search the city, from the tunnels of its dark underbelly to the private sanctum of the upper crust, to find the perfect hiding place for a killer.

THE BLACK BOOK

Five years ago, a mysterious fire burned Edinburgh's seedy Central Hotel to ashes. Long-forgotten and unsolved, the case reappears when a charred body - with a bullet in its head - is found among the ruins. Inspector John Rebus knows that his superiors would prefer he leave things alone. He knows that part of the answer lies somewhere in a cryptic black notebook. And he knows that to solve the case, he'll have to peel back layer after layer of unspeakable secrets to arrive at the truth.

The 3 book deal is a great bargain

I was a little concerned that these books would seem dated. However, I was surprised at how much I enjoyed the stories and the narration. I wish audible would offer these bundled deals more often.

Threefer!

Three early unabridged Rebus books in one. They were a little uneven in quality, but it's treat for fans.

Performance Odd

Great story with nice characterization and interesting twists. Very distracting narration though with most of the male characters performed in gristly, rumbling, pirate voices. Why? Needs more variety. Females all sound simpering. Strange gender splits in the narration.
