About the Author:

Born in the Kingdom of Fife in 1960, Ian Rankin graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 1982, and then spent three years writing novels when he was supposed to be working towards a PhD in Scottish Literature. His first Rebus novel was published in 1987, and the Rebus books are now translated into twenty-two languages and are bestsellers on several continents. Ian Rankin has been elected a Hawthornden Fellow, and is also a past winner of the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He is the recipient of four Crime Writers' Association Dagger Awards including the prestigious Diamond Dagger in 2005. In 2004, Ian won America's celebrated Edgar Award for 'Resurrection Men'. He has also been shortlisted for the Edgar and Anthony Awards in the USA, and won Denmark's Palle Rosenkrantz Prize, the French Grand Prix du Roman Noir and the Deutscher Krimipreis. Ian Rankin is also the recipient of honorary degrees from the universities of Abertay, St Andrews and Edinburgh. A contributor to BBC2's 'Newsnight Review', he also presented his own TV series, 'Ian Rankin's Evil Thoughts'. He recently received the OBE for services to literature, opting to receive the prize in his home city of Edinburgh, where he lives with his partner and two sons.

From AudioFile:

If you've been yearning for a fast-paced story coupled with a crisp read, your hunt is over. In this departure from Rankin's usual John Rebus mysteries, ex-SAS operative Gordon Reeve (a killer in one of the Inspector Rebus books) transports himself to San Diego when he learns his estranged brother has committed suicide there. It soon becomes evident that his brother's death was not self-inflicted. As Reeve identifies the motive and hunts down the killers, Christian Rodska delivers a notable performance as the tough Briton. His rich, sometimes gravelly voice is always in command. He also handles the varied characters expertly. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
