Description

Detective Inspector John Rebus investigates a cold case that has turned red hot once again. John Rebus, as incapable of settling into his retirement as he is of playing by the rules, investigates a cold case from the 1970s involving a gorgeous and wealthy female socialite who was found dead in a bedroom at one of Edinburgh's most luxurious hotels. No one was ever found guilty, but the scandalous circumstances of the murder have kept the town talking for over forty years. Now, Rebus has his own reasons to investigate, but his inquiries quickly make him some very dangerous and powerful enemies who will stop at nothing to ensure that the case remains unsolved and the gossip falls on deaf ears.

Professional reviews

"For many longtime fans of Rankin's series, James MacPherson IS the voice of Inspector John Rebus, and with good reason. At book Number 21 in the series, MacPherson perfectly blends Rebus's tough-guy exterior and insecure interior, exposing the complex layers of Rankin's much-loved character. MacPherson's delivery of Rankin's signature wit tickles the funny bone, making listeners laugh despite a dark plot that has Rebus investigating a cold case with the help of friends Siobhan Clarke and Malcolm Fox. MacPherson has had plenty of practice perfecting Rebus, and his performance of the supporting characters, especially the antagonists, is superb. With atmosphere, pacing, and authentic emotion, MacPherson makes this audiobook an engrossing listen for old and new fans alike. J.F.
