This is the first Inspector Rebus book I have read and I thought it was very good. The story was very tense and exciting although it took me a while to work out who all the other characters were. I enjoyed it so much that I am going to go back and read the other books. I would recommend that other people start at the beginning of the series because otherwise you might be confused about certain characters like I was.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not very good, 8 Nov 2006
I thought this book was very disappointing. I have read two other books by Minette Walters and they were all better than this one. I think she must be a snob because most of her characters are posh and she is very patronizing to ordinary people. I also dont like the way she dwells on violence as if she is just out to shock. The Sculptress and Dark Room had good stories but this one is very far fetched and the heroine is hard to like. I would recommend reading the new books by Ian Rankin or Ruth Rendell over this one.

My sister has read all the Ruth Rendell books but this is the first one I have read. I thought it was very good. The characters were realistic and it was very tense at the end and also quite sad. I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys mysteries.
