Full of plot, incidents, twists and turns.  At its core is gang warfare, a Nazi war criminal and Rebus struggling with his demon drink and the memory of his daughter. Edinburgh, of course, is at the centre of it all.  It is one of his best, complicated, clever and very satisfying.

The Hanging Garden Synopsis

The 9th Inspector Rebus novel from Ian Rankin.

Detective Inspector Rebus is buried under a pile of paperwork generated by his investigations into a suspected war criminal. But an escalating dispute between the upstart Tommy Telford and Big Ger Cafferty's gang gives Rebus an escape clause.

Telford is known to have close links with a Newcastle gangster nicknamed Mr Pink Eyes - a Chechen bringing refugees into Britain as prostitutes. When Rebus takes under his wing a distraught Bosnian call girl, it gives him a personal reason to make sure Telford takes the high road back to Paisley and pronto.

 

Then Rebus's daughter is the victim of an all too professional hit-and-run and Rebus knows that now there is nothing he wouldn't do to bring down prime suspect Tommy Telford - even if it means cutting a deal with the devil.

The Hanging Garden Press Reviews

'Rankin's handling of the gangland plot, culminating in a sting designed to entrap the multinational mobsters as they raid a huge drug-making plant, is masterly' Sunday Times

'Gritty, authentic and superbly written' Guardian
