9780312565640: The Black Book: An Inspector Rebus Novel (Inspector Rebus Novels)

Five years ago, a mysterious fire burned Edinburgh's seed Central Hotel to ashes. Long-forgotten and unsolved, the case reappears when a charred body--with a bullet in its head--is found amongst the ruins. Inspector John Rebus knows that his superiors would rather he let sleeping dogs lie. He knows that part of the answer lies somewhere in a cryptic black notebook. And he knows that to solve the case, he'll have to peel back layer upon layer of unspeakable secrets to arrive at the truth. . .

The Sunday Telegraph raves, "No one captures the noirish side of the city as well as Rankin," and The Black Book is one of his best.

About the Author:

Ian Rankin is the worldwide #1 bestselling writer of the Inspector Rebus mysteries, including Knots and Crosses, Hide and Seek, Let It Bleed, Black and Blue, Set in Darkness, Resurrection Men, A Question of Blood, The Falls and Exit Music. He has won an Edgar Award, a Gold Dagger for fiction, a Diamond Dagger for career excellence, and the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He has been elected a Hawthornden Fellow, and received the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his contributions to literature. He graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife and their two sons.

From AudioFile:

Edinburgh's Deputy Inspector Rebus finds himself immersed in a series of interconnected crimes, which may have their origin in a long-forgotten hotel fire. Ultimately Rebus may have to risk his life and career by going outside the law to solve the mystery. Reader Bill Paterson maintains a resolute reading pace, letting words create gritty images of action and character, rather than imposing himself upon the text. Paterson's authentic Scottish accent adds a splash of color to the drab Edinburgh backdrops, as does occasional Scottish slang. E.E.L. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award winner (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
