Publisher's Summary

Stalking a poisoner at the local zoo, Inspector John Rebus comes across a paedophile taking pictures of children.

When the social workers claim he is there for legitimate educational reasons, Rebus is faced with a dilemma - should he be outed to protect local kids or given a chance to start anew?

As the locals begin a hate campaign, Rebus gets a call from the past: The son of a friend has gone missing, and no one else will make time to ask the right questions. And then a fragment of Scotland's criminal history is repatriated at the end of a life sentence for murder.

Once more Rebus' cup of trouble runneth over, and the ghosts of past misdeeds return to haunt Edinburgh's streets.

    "LIKE A BIT OF REBUS"
    Would you listen to Dead Souls again? Why?

    As I like Ian Rankin and the Rebus character, I did enjoy this. He drinks too much, is cantankerous and would like to cut corners, but in the end he always comes up teumps.


    Which character – as performed by James Macpherson – was your favourite?

    It was all good. It's what makes the book so easy to listen to,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No I don't tend to do that.

    "Vintage Rebus... Rankin on top form"

    A complex storyline with many devious twists and turns. Edinburgh, again, features heavily with day trips to the Kingdom. The story kept us guessing up to the end but, for us, the best thing about this book is James MacPherson's narration. He is convincing as both male and female characters but his dark, creepy psycho will make your flesh crawl. He brings Rankin's many characters to life.

    "Enjoyable"

    I found this book fast paced, and gripping as is usual for Ian Rankin's novels. However, I felt it was a bit 'unfinished' with several points left in the air.

    Overall I enjoyed it though, and I do like James Macpherson's narration, apart from his 'posh' D S Clarke's voice. (trouble with audio is that I don't always know how to spell the names)

    "Didn't grab me"

    Very long and not very exciting. I really disliked how Carey had it all over the police, especially when he was taken to a supposed kill site and begged to say if he killed the copper's niece. I actually skipped to the next chapter because it was too ridiculous. Have read better

    "My favorites. Rankin and Rebus."

    Having read the first half of the series in print form, the switch to audio book took some getting used to. Hearing the voices, with the accents chosen by the narrator, was almost jarring at the beginning. However, by the second chapter I had settled in and will finish out the series in audio books. Highly recommended.
