Publisher Description

REBUS IS BACK.
The superb No.1 bestseller from 'Britain's best crime novelist' EXPRESS

A series of seemingly random disappearances - stretching back to the millennium.
A mother determined to find the truth.
A retired cop desperate to get his old life back...

It's been some time since Rebus was forced to retire, and he now works as a civilian in a cold-case unit. So when a long-dead case bursts back to life, he can't resist the opportunity to get his feet under the CID desk once more. But Rebus is as stubborn and anarchic as ever, and he quickly finds himself in deep with pretty much everyone, including DI Siobhan Clarke.

All Rebus wants to do is uncover the truth. The big question is: can he be the man he once was and still stay on the right side of the law?

The Best Rebus Yet

This has been a most enjoyable read. Twist upon twist written so well that I feel that I am there watching as the story unfolds.

Rebus - he just gets under your skin

Another great read from Ian Rankin - Scotland's master story teller. Rebus was always too good to retire, and I'm glad to see him return, there is just something about him that gets under your skin and makes his less than handbook efforts in policing the mean streets of Edinburgh and surrounds so compelling.

I think perhaps because Rebus is such a deeply flawed, but admirable anti-hero, you just can't help liking him. Human and believable, funny but tragic, the ultimate underdog to love. Whatever the case, a great rollicking read, and another fine addition to the Rebus mythology!
