Publisher Description

The very first Rebus novel from the No.1 bestselling author.

'And in Edinburgh of all places. I mean, you never think of that sort of thing happening in Edinburgh, do you...?'

'That sort of thing' is the brutal abduction and murder of two young girls. And now a third is missing, presumably gone to the same sad end. Detective Sergeant John Rebus, smoking and drinking too much, his own young daughter spirited away south by his disenchanted wife, is one of many policemen hunting the killer.

And then the messages begin to arrive: knotted string and matchstick crosses - taunting Rebus with pieces of a puzzle only he can solve.

Late to Rebus...

Rebus is a wonderful character coupled with Rankin's stories it's a great partnership.
Read the last in the series first but in a way not a problem as the character and story were so developed it was great to go back the beginning and start to peel back the layers. I am now working my way through the books and can't wait....

Knots & crosses

This is the first book by Ian Rankin I have read and it has wetted my appetite sufficiently to make me look for more. A well constructed novel it kept up the intrigue with a momentum I enjoyed.

Knots and Crosses

Not one of Ian Rankin's best novels but a good read nevertheless.
