Just finished the latest Rebus, although there's another due soon-ish. Yes the retired Edinburgh detective who can't stay retired (this being the second time, as I recall) is back, and doing things his way. He's changed, as has Edinburgh, and Scottish policing, in real life, as in this fiction. No more Lothian & Borders, it's Police Scotland, with Edinburgh being Division Six. You can sort of tell that most of the power's shifted to what used to be Strathclyde Plod... Murder, skullduggery, music, and a man who's feeling the years catch up with him.

If you like Rebus, or detective novels in general, you'll like this. You pretty much know what to expect from Rankin in this area by now. 8/10
