Rebus 21.  Rankin is one of my favourite authors so I tend to enjoy whatever he writes.  Especially Rebus.


In this adventure we find Rebus simultaneously investigating a cold case of 40 years standing and trying to stop all out gang war in Edinburgh in the present.


I enjoyed this book and would recommend it. Unlike previous Rebus adventures this one left me thinking a lot about Rebus' constant adversary Big Ger Cafferty for a long time after I'd finished the book.

I just finished this book, too, and liked it very much.  And I agree that Big Ger Cafferty is really important in this book.  He and Rebus seem to always be at about the same place in their careers, which makes me wonder if Rebus is ready for a rebirth.  I hope so.
