"Rebus is back on the force. Rankin at his full throttle best!…"
In Saints of The Shadow Bible, Rankin steers up the stour, taking us back down the shadowy closes of Rebus’ early career, when things were perhaps not done exactly by the book, but where policemen took a pledge to protect, others and themselves for ever, no matter what the cost.
As Scotland stands on the brink of independence, Rebus has returned to the force. Now Siobhan is his boss and Malcolm Fox is investigating him! Rankin deals with the new Police Scotland changes while chucking in his usual mix of Edinburgh neds, bars and back streets. Rebus’ couthy black humour has never been sharper.
When is death a murder? Is it purely protocol and forensics? What is The Shadow Bible? Is Rebus a saint or a sinner?
Rankin’s fans will love this book. Not only do we have Rebus back on the force, but it even manages to make Malcolm Fox a more likeable character!
