Review:

"John Rebus, an outstanding creation... very ambitious and very confident with acute observation of the not-so-bonny side of Scotland."
Mike Ripley, "Sunday Telegraph" "Rankin's ability to create a credible character, delivering convincing dialogue to complement sinister and hard-hitting plots set against vividly detailed atmosphere, is simply awesome."
