Undeterred by pressure from above to drop a sensitive case, Rebus unearths dirty dealings and conspiracy within many official departments.  Along the way we find a tender side to our spiky cop in a novel that eventually brings him a little closer to his estranged daughter.  Although his drinking problem is on the increase, this complicated, unhappy fellow, who is not doing too well, demands our sympathy, or at least mine.  The blending of political corruption and the development of Scotland’s economy is fascinating.  A really good one. ~ Sarah Broadhurst
