A solid complex case trying to be solved by Rebus, the as always cranky, authoritarian detective. The multiple suspects and sub-plots keep the suspenseful story moving along briskly as Rebus doggedly tracks down clues and suspects and at the same time trying to maintain his relationship with his girlfriend.
The plot revolves around MP Gregor Jack caught in a brothel and his wife missing and then found murdered and numerous suspects that keep on changing. Rankin's books are usually very entertaining and a good read and this one is no exception.

I was starting to think that I would be the exception to the rule and I wouldn't like Ian Rankin's books at all. This is the third one by him that I read but the first one I really liked. Very entertaining and it's easy to see the character of DI Rebus coming into his own
