* * * * *

Private investigator Stuart Bloom was missing, presumed dead.
Until now.

His body is discovered in an abandoned car - in an area that had already been searched...
Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke combs through the mistakes of the original investigation. After a decade without answers, it's time for the truth.

But it seems everyone involved with the case is hiding something.

None more so than Siobhan's own mentor: former detective John Rebus. The only man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him.

EVERYONE HAS SECRETS
NOBODY IS INNOCENT


IN A HOUSE OF LIES

As great as the best of the rest

Great read, nice garden paths and questions to which the answer could as well be (d) all of the above, or (e) none of the above. Rebus is a brilliant construct - human for good or bad to his core.

friend from Australia ,

Best until last?

This was fantastic
I hope Rebus still has a few years in him yet!
Traveled from Sydney to the Oxford so last bit was fantastic
I’m sure another best seller👍
