A bit too long.....but still good.
on 26 July 2017
I'm reading the Rebus books in order and you can see the author improving as a writer and the character of Rebus developing. Some old characters from previous tales appear and it was good to see him leave his usual haunts and go as far as Aberdeen, Glasgow and even the Shetland oil rigs. In places it seemed overly long and became bogged down....(too many interweaving plots perhaps?)....and there were net as many good one liners as usual. Also some parts were unlikely....eg Rebus being questioned as a suspected serial killer withou being arrested? But apart from these comments it was still an enjoyable read. I can't see him staying on the waggon though....and he's even started to cry now! So I'll look forward to reading the next one.
