This book was written thirty years ago (you can tell, central locking in cars seems to have been a novelty and as for mobile phones, non-existent) and it went out of print.  The only Rankin to do so.  Legend has it that a fan persuaded Ian Rankin to give it another read and he realised that it wasn't as bad as he originally thought it was and had it re-released, this year. 


So, it's about a facility that uses satellites to monitor goings on.  Something bad happens and one of the scientists ends up trying to battle secret service agents to find out the truth.  A little far fetched but interesting none the less and an entertaining read.

I'm currently reading Fleshmarket Close, one of the Rebus books. Still trying to work my way through all of those. Once I've finished one of his books I often wonder if I'll bother reading another one because in some ways they are very similar but immediately I start one the characters are so alive that I'm hooked back in. If and when I finish all the Rebus books I'll start on his other books, like this one. Thanks for the review Luna.
