Publisher's Summary

Inspector Rebus Book 4
Gregor Jack, MP, well-liked, young, married to the fiery Elizabeth - to the outside world a very public success story. But Jack's carefully nurtured career plans take a tumble after a 'mistake' during a police raid on a notorious Edinburgh brothel. Then Elizabeth disappears, a couple of bodies float into view where they shouldn't, and a lunatic speaks from his asylum...
Initially Rebus is sympathetic to the MP's dilemma - who hasn't occasionally succumbed to temptation? - but with the disappearance of Jack's wife the glamour surrounding the popular young man begins to tarnish. Someone wants to strip Jack naked and Rebus wants to know why...

Having read all the rebus books I thought I'd try them on audible,boy I'm glad I have.This is my third one and the best revisit so far.James MacPherson is just perfect as a narrator. This is one of the earlier rebus novels and what stands out on audible is how much dry humour their is in the book that I don't recall when reading it,I don't know if this is just down to the narration but it came as a pleasant surprise. It just goes to show how good an author Rankin is and what a brilliant creation rebus is

His writing improved.

It is always interesting to experience " earlier works" from a writer whom you have come to appreciate.
There is no doubt that the plots were always interesting ( for this genre) but Mr R, thankfully, looked to improving the pace and urgency in his style.
How much less violent these early novels were and how less broken as a human being Rebus was. Life, even in the context of a novel series, becomes / became more brutal and gritty for many.
