Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
In the dark days and biting windstorms of an Edinburgh winter, two drop-out kids dive off the towering Forth Road Bridge. A civic office is spattered by a grisly gun-blast. Two suicides and a murder that just don't add up, unless John Rebus can crunch the numbers. Following a trail that snakes through stark alleys and sad bars, shredded files and lacerated lives, Rebus finds himself up against an airtight, murderous conglomerate on the make in every arena of power. It's leeching the life and soul out of his city and, if it can, him too...
  It may be Inspector Rebus' toughest case ever in Let It Bleed, from brilliant crime writer Ian Rankin.

Review:
Detective Inspector John Rebus is not a man easily intimidated, so when political heavyweights start to lean on the dour, moralistic Edinburgh detective to stop an investigation, Rebus doggedly digs in and follows the case as it moves from embezzlement to murder and finally to conspiracy at the highest level of government.

Review

Review:
Praise for Ian Rankin:

"Ian Rankin is up there among the best crime novelists at work today. His stuff is always taut, gritty, and stirring. At the heart of it stands Rebus, a character for the ages because he's a cop with style, wit, and an inalienable sense of the gray area between right and wrong." --Michael Connelly

"The progenitor--and king--of tartan noir." --James Ellroy

"A novelist of great scope, depth, and power...Brilliant." --Jonathan Kellerman

"In Rankin you cannot go wrong." --THE BOSTON GLOBE

"Ian Rankin's brilliant series featuring John Rebus is the kind of blistering police procedural that gives the genre a good name." --ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"A brilliant series...the work of a master." --THE SAN FRANCISCO EXAMINER & CHRONICLE

"Crime fiction at its best." --THE WASHINGTON POST BOOK WORLD

"Rankin's dexterity in juggling plots and threats and motives lights up the darkness with a poet's grace. Reading him is like watching somebody juggle a dozen bottles of single malt without spilling a drop." --KIRKUS REVIEWS

"A brutal but beautifully written series...Rankin pushes the procedural form well past conventional genre limits." --THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
