Rebus v Bible John,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Black And Blue (Kindle Edition)
Black and Blue the eighth Ian Rankin book to feature his legendary detective John Rebus is in my opinion the best of the series so far.
Rebus is dragged back into his past via both the potential reemergence of Bible John who after years dormant appears to be back killing woman in Scotland and seemingly leaving no clues. Rebus is also having to deal with an Investigation into one of his past cases as rumours and accusations that he and his old boss planted evidence to secure a conviction against Lenny Spaven and his every move is under the microscope.
This was a fantastic book and a very good read. The character Rebus is so well defined at this point in the series that you truly find yourself fully immersed in his struggles and decision making. Ian Rankin has created a hugely successful and entertaining series and this book is another success in the early Rebus collection.
I would strongly recommend both this book and this series.
