In a House of Lies... 

Everyone has something to hide.

A missing private investigator is found locked in a car hidden deep in the woods. Worse still - both for his family and the police - is that his body was in an area that had already been searched.   

Everyone has secrets.

Detective Inspector Siobhan Clarke is part of a new inquiry, combing through the mistakes of the original case. There were always suspicions over how the investigation was handled, and now - after a decade without answers - it's time for the truth.   

Nobody is innocent.

Every officer involved must be questioned, and it seems everyone on the case has something to hide and everything to lose. But there is one man who knows where the trail may lead - and that it could be the end of him: John Rebus. 

Read by James Macpherson.

I really tried to like it but found it tedious and hard to finish. Several hours into it, I abandoned it for good. Do not recommend.

A bit confusing

I like Rebus books , And overall this lived up to my expectations. It was just a bit confusing for awhile to figure out who was speaking except for the really obvious unique people. Cheers.
