Publisher's Summary

Rebus is juggling four cases trying to nail one killer - who might just lead back to the infamous Bible John. And he's doing it under the scrutiny of an internal inquiry led by a man he has just accused of taking backhanders from Glasgow's Mr Big.
As if this wasn't enough, there are TV cameras at his back investigating a miscarriage of justice, making Rebus a criminal in the eyes of a million or more viewers. Just one mistake is likely to mean an unpleasant and not particularly speedy death or, worse still, losing his job.
Features a new introduction narrated by Ian himself.

Favourite Rankin book so far.

So I started reading this series from the beginning I.e. Knots & Crosses and couldn't see what all the fuss was about. But Black & Blue didn't disappoint. Lots of action, twists and turns. It was useful to have back story on some of the characters. I sometimes find it hard to keep up with all the different characters that Ian Rankin introduces, but like a ball of tangled wool it unravels towards the end of the book, as all becomes clear. I like James Mcpherson's narration and he makes listening a pleasure. Looking forward to reading the rest of the Rebus books.

Having lived through the Bible John saga etc. there were answers proffered and even more lanes to go up.
Have promised myself to start it all again at the beginning to savour all the bits I'm sure I missed
