4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 2 Dec. 2009
This review is from: Witch Hunt (Paperback)
Having read the entire series of Rebus novels (and enjoyed them very much) but no other Rankins, I picked this one up at the airport when going on holiday not really knowing what to expect.

I found it to be a good and easy read, which kept me wanting to turn the pages. The differences I noticed between this and the Rebus books were:
1. In the level of detail and research around the places and events taking place. I have always found the Rebus books to be very detailed, giving the reader a real picture of the back drop to the story, I thought this was less so in this novel. Perhaps this is to be expected when it is set away from Rankin's usual stamping ground in Edinburgh.
2. This was generally more 'action packed' than the Rebus novels.
It was however an enjoyable read and certainly an easier plot to follow than some of the Rebus novels where I have sometimes found it necessary to review a page or two to remember where a character appeared previously (my reading tends to be in short burst between attending to the children)!

I think this will generally be enjoyed by previous Rebus readers and I would certainly recommend it.
