Inspector John Rebus has confronted Edinburgh’s most hardened criminals, its bloodiest crime scenes, and its most dangerous backstreets—but nothing could have prepared him for what he finds on Fleshmarket Alley.
In the city’s red-light district, men live out their sordid fantasies, and women with no other choice sell their bodies to make a buck. It’s a neighborhood of lost inhibitions, forgotten scruples, and hopeless dreams. In its seediest clubs, refugees seeking asylum are subjected to the whims of the most ruthless characters in the crime world—men Rebus knows all too well.

Ian Rankin is an Edgar Award nominee and the recipient of the Gold Dagger Award for Fiction and the Chandler-Fulbright Award. He lives in Edinburgh, Scotland, with his wife and their two sons.From AudioFile:
In Rankin's most recent Scottish police procedural, DI John Rebus and DS Siobhan Clark investigate a murder in Edinburgh's Fleshmarket Alley. The story visits the city's seediest, most dangerous places and explores a modern fleshmarket, namely the trafficking of human beings. In spite of the length and expanding plot lines, Michael Page maintains the listener's interest and keeps us informed of the shifting story line. He also excels with voices, offering a range of believable British accents, as well as the accents of assorted immigrants, including Senegalese French. As always, Page delivers a sensitive reading of female voices, which isn't easy for male narrators. A very professional job.
