Another very good DI Rebus novel.
After a very cinematic car chase Rebus ruffles the wrong feathers and is (at least officially) left completely alone to deal with the "highest echelons" of Scottish society. And he is definitely not comfortable in posh company. He works against everyone he should be careful with and ends up having to make a very difficult decision.
A compelling read with Rebus's character growing and becoming deeper and deeper with each novel.
Better than average Ian Rankin novel. Starts with a great car chase and then moves into a classic Rebus story. A good bedtime read.
