Summary

Struggling through another Edinburgh winter Rebus finds himself sucked into a web of intrigue that throws up more questions than answers.
Was the Lord Provost's daughter kidnapped or just another runaway? Why is a city councillor shredding documents that should have been waste paper years ago? And why on Earth is Rebus invited to a clay pigeon shoot at the home of the Scottish Office's Permanent Secretary?
Sucked into the machine that is modern Scotland, Rebus confronts the fact that some of his enemies may be beyond justice....

'Real' Intrigue

Once again Ian Rankin takes the stories for real families and weaves them into a very believable narrative - Rebus is a small player in a big pond - but that does not put him off - as ever he wants to get to the truth - and justice. Once again well drawn characters inhabit this book of intrigue in high places.

Superb Scottish crime fiction

I love all the Rebus novels, and the way James MacPherson reads them, but this has to be one of my favourites! Great plot, mixed with human interest... and you can see it as an introduction to recent Scottish history, too. Highly recommended!
