Major complaint on this one: many chapters seem to begin making you guess which character is being followed. Irritating quirk that I don't remember from other Rankin books that I've read.

Miles Flint is a watchman for MI5. He suspects foul play in a failed assignment by his colleagues and assigns himself to solve this mystery of an assassinated Israeli in spite of his superiors.
The first half of the novel is rather slow but it does set the scene as to what will eventually happen. There is an interesting and surprising ending as Flint comes into an uneasy alliance with an IRA terrorist.
It is an early work by Rankin and I feel the Rebus novels are much more interesting.

Rankin definitely has a very peculiar style of writing but so far (this is the second book of his I read), I think his plots lack punch and entertainment
