A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat, spread-eagled, cross-like on the floor, between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. Just another dead addict - until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind...

Inspector Rebus at his best
I could easily listen to this again, but I rarely revisit books unless there is a reference in a later story that I'd need to refresh myself on.
It would have been nice to have the opportunity to listen to the book all in one go because it does have that 'I'll just listen a while longer to find out what happens' feeling. As it is, I found it easy to keep returning to it without losing the plot.
An engaging listen. As have all the Rebus books I've listened to so far.
