Ian Rankin - The Black Book
A treat - an adult book for a change! The fifth Rebus novel which underlined that Rankin joins the elite of crime writers. Wonderfully phrased and beautifully plotted this book reveals itself as you turn the page. As a colleague is attacked this draws Rebus into investigating a long unsolved case involving a hotel fire and a dead body. Rebus has to unravel the seemingly unrelated clues and hints. Dark and dangerous - and well worth a read.
