Rebus is off the case - literally. A few days into the murder inquiry of an Edinburgh art dealer, Rebus blows up at a colleague. He is sent to the Scottish Police College for 'retraining' - in other words, he's in the Last Chance Saloon.
Rebus is assigned to an old, unsolved case, but there are those in his team who have their own secrets - and they'll stop at nothing to protect them. Rebus is also asked to act as a go-between for gangster 'Big Ger' Cafferty. And as newly promoted DS Siobhan Clarke works the case of the murdered art dealer, she is brought closer to Cafferty than she could ever have anticipated...

Yet another thoroughly enjoyable tale, with the some of the well established key characters woven into a complex tale. Pay attention, you'll need to.
Siobhan's role and character are developed, her promotion bringing her greater prominence in the storyline.
Narration is faultless, immersing you in the story.
Well worth a listen.
What can I say. Hours of pure escapism. In theory I listen as a way of lulling myself to sleep but more often than not try to keep awake to hear what happens next!
I'm working my way through Rebus in order. Resurrection Men is a thumping good story with Rebus being less maudlin than before. Old and new characters well portrayed and rounded out. Very enjoyable read.
All Rebus books are good, but this one is exceptional. Great story, good characters, wonderfully read.
