Publisher's Summary

In Edinburgh you're never far from a peaceful spot, or from a hellish one either. Now, in the heart of summer, in the midst of a nationalist festival, Inspector John Rebus is on the murder case of a young man left hanging in a spot where his screams would never be heard. To find the victim's identity - and his killer - Rebus searches from Edinburgh's most violent neighborhood to Belfast, Northern Ireland, among petty thugs, gunrunners, and heavyweight criminals. But before Rebus can get to the truth, he's bloodied by the dream of society's madmen - and staring into the glint of a killer's eyes.

Loved this one

This Rebus book had it all, great plot, interesting characters with good developement and with a little more of Rebus personal life revealed.
The reader did a great job kèeping the accents without letting them turn rhe people into characterizations.

another good story in the series

An interesting story with some new characters and further development of some of the old minor characters. the performance was good and always keep in mind how difficult it is to differentiate all these different Scottish accents.
