Fleshmarket Close | [Ian Rankin]

Fleshmarket Close

An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme: a racist attack, or something else? Rebus is drawn into the case, but has other problems: his old police station has closed, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. As Rebus investigates, he must visit an asylum seekers' detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love.... Siobhan has problems of her own.

Publisher's Summary

An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme: a racist attack, or something else? Rebus is drawn into the case, but has other problems: his old police station has closed, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. As Rebus investigates, he must visit an asylum seekers' detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love....

Siobhan has problems of her own. A teenager has disappeared from home and Siobhan is drawn into helping the family, which means travelling too close to the web of a convicted rapist. Then there are two skeletons - a woman and an infant - found buried beneath a concrete cellar floor in Fleshmarket Close. The scene begins to look like an elaborate stunt - but whose, and for what purpose? And how can it tie to the murder on the unforgiving housing-scheme known as Knoxland?

    "Classic Rebus"

    As usual Rankin starts off with what you assume to be a fairly straight forward murder but the plot soon twists and turns and you wonder where it's all going to go. Again, as usual, there's a theme, in this case immigration and you do wonder if Rebus' views are Rankin's, not that it matters.



    The narration is good, the Scot's accent just right. Having lived north of te border for 15 years it was fun to hear some of the phrases and wordes again but for those of you not familiar with the vernacular we have the trusty Sargeant to provide the questionning looks.



    All in all a good addition to the canon.

    "Love Rebus"

    This is another classic rebus novel, really enjoyed the 2 independent stories going on at once and how they stories end up coming together.

    Enthralling and good narration.

    Definitely worth a listen if you like Rebus.

    "Gripping"

    Rebus at his best and the vocalisation of Tom Cotcher surpasses any other reader I have heard so far
