Mr RANKIN, THIS RANKS PRETTY LOW - SORRY!
on 4 September 2001
I wish they'd kept this as a "Jack Harvey" novel. To me, it seems to dilute the Rankin-Rebus series, which is probably the best thriller series about at the moment. This, in truth, is a pretty average thriller. I wouldn't recommend it if it wasn't written by the usually brilliant Rankin. Read this and by comparison you'll see just how brilliant a creation John Rebus really is. How could you compare this to something like The Falls? You can't. So ...
... My recommendations for 2001: 1. THE FALLS by Ian Rankin 2. POWER OF ATTORNEY by Dexter Dias 3. MY NAME IS RED by Orhan Pamuk
