Publisher's Summary

DI Rebus is buried under a pile of paperwork but an escalating dispute between the upstart Tommy Telford and Big Ger Cafferty's gang gives Rebus an escape clause. Telford is known to have close links with a Chechen gangster bringing refugees into Britain as prostitutes.

When Rebus takes under his wing a distraught Bosnian call girl, it gives him a personal reason to make sure Telford goes back to Paisley and pronto. Then Rebus's daughter is the victim of an all too professional hit-and-run and Rebus knows that there is now nothing he won't do to bring down prime suspect Tommy Telford - even if it means cutting a deal with the devil.

You got to love Rebus

Great book the Rebus character is a lovable rouge but everyone knows one like him. The book has a great story line with deals with criminals, attempted murder, little old ladies as drug mules

Simply the best

What can I say that has not already been said? Ian Rankin, in my opinion, is simply the best crime writer on the planet. This Rebus story is my first in an audio version. A most enjoyable experience with very professional reader.
