Another cracking Rebus tale, but not one of the very best.,
This review is from: Strip Jack (Inspector Rebus) (Paperback)
Ian Rankin never disappoints in his Inspector Rebus stories, but while this one is certainly very good it never quite reaches the realms of excellence that some of the other novels achieve. Maybe it's the fact that a lot of the action takes place away from the claustrophobic Edinburgh environment and underworld that Rankin usually brings so vividly to life. A breath of fresh country air may not always be recommended. Still, if you are a Rebus fan, or even if you are just looking for a good read in the crime genre, you will enjoy this.
