The second Inspector Rebus novel from 'Britain's No.1 crime writer' DAILY MIRROR.
A junkie lies dead in an Edinburgh squat, spreadeagled, cross-like on the floor, between two burned-down candles, a five-pointed star daubed on the wall above. Just another dead addict - until John Rebus begins to chip away at the indifference, treachery, deceit and sleaze that lurks behind the facade of the Edinburgh familiar to tourists. Only Rebus seems to care about a death which looks more like a murder every day, about a seductive danger he can almost taste, appealing to the darkest corners of his mind ...See all Product description

Rebus as a character is much more like himself in this book. Gone are the army flashbacks and the crying replaced with the hard nosed, determined and loveable Rebus that has brought us so many hours of joy.
Hide and Seek starts with Rebus been called to the death of a junkie in a squat in Edinburgh and while everyone else is ready to put it down to just another over dose Rebus has time on his hands and a feeling that something is not right. As will become the normal with the Rebus books he bulldozes his way through the case and uses everything he can to crack the case.
This is a very well written book, and a major Improvement on the first Rebus novel. I would strongly recommend this book to any fans of the crime genre.
The book offers more opportunity to get to know some of the other characters better - Gill, Holmes and the Farmer, for example.
I thought that the plot of the book was a bit disappointing and found myself getting a bit fed up with it about 2/3 of the way through but then being dragged back into the action when suddenly, towards the end, everything was explained and concluded within the space of a few pages.
I'm looking forward to starting the next one sometime but won't rush to it.
