When Detective Inspector John Rebus investigates the death of a junkie, he uncovers bizarre links between Edinburgh's dark underside and its staid, proper middle-class society, and finds his own life threatened by his search for the truth

Blackwell North Amer
A junkie, dead in an Edinburgh squat, the body laid out with ritual precision. A girl with a past, running wild and running scared.
But who cares? These are the dregs, a squalid society of addicts and derelicts; people long since disconnected from a society that is preoccupied with the new businesses and the new homes bringing prosperity to a city concentrating on advertising its quality of life.
Only Detective Inspector John Rebus senses something evil, something too dangerous to ignore that has to be investigated and brought up into the light. Something that may prove to be very closely connected indeed to the bright new world above. It is an investigation that will find him not just trying to solve a crime but fighting for his life.

Rebus books get better later on. This early character is worth reading while keeping in mind he is still being developed. Plot is strong and tensions between characters is realistic if a bit undeserved.

I didn't like this book as much I enjoyed Knots and Crosses. I am going to read the 3rd Inspector Rebus novel to see if this author is worth continuing to read.

My first venture into Ian Rankin territory and I must say I wasn't impressed at all
