The reason I enjoyed this one more than the first and the reason why it did not work itself to a higher rating can be pointed towards the same thing – the character of Rebus. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. Rebus remembers journalist Jim Stevens from Knots and Crosses, and that he has since moved to London and married a girl "half his age" - a reference to Stevens in Watchman.

Then the wild ride begins through dog fighting, gambling, sex clubs, rent boys and a few more things of which I lost track. Es un libro con una narración sencilla, una trama poco complicada y no muy extenso, que se lee bien y te mantiene entretenida. He has massive disdain for authority, which is somehow echoed in his great disrespect for his own person and home. As an experiment, for “Hide and Seek” I decided to instantly look up everything I did not understand while reading. Corruption, blackmail, illegal boxing, exploitation and those at the top getting away with crimes appears to be a common conclusion with Rebus stories.narfna on “What the stories never said: at the end of the day, if a man wants to kill you, he kills you. Rankin knows how to spin a mystery, even at the early stage of his career, and while he didn’t really keep me guessing, he kept me reading.

In terms of work, although extremely sincere he is not above abusing his power to get small things like parking place.

Meanwhile, he’s meeting some of Edinburgh’s richest businessmen and most influential men, who are backing his work on drugs. As my vocabulary is terrible if I stop to look up each word I can’t comprehend then I can’t progress beyond one page per hour. My only outstanding books are a handful (I’m not quite sure how many as I’m not absolutely certain which ones I’ve read and which I haven’t) at the start of the series. There were scenes here that had me laughing aloud which also included dialogue as caustic and cutting as you’ll find anywhere in literature. It turns out getting my hands on the first Rebus book came about through me getting my hands on the first nine plus an unrelated Ian Rankin book through a boxset – needless to say, I was set and more than willing to dive in.

He establishes that the junkie has been murdered by someone who substitutes rat poison for his normal fix. But his Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't happy at yet more interference, and Rebus finds himself dealing with racial prejudice as well as the predations of a violent maniac. There’s also a new Superintendent to deal with and he’s co-opted John onto a small team looking at the wider issue of the city’s growing drug problems. Junkies, addicts and pushers; gay and straight prostitution; dog fighting; illegal high stakes gaming and brothels; corruption in the police force, on the bench and at the bar; alcoholics and drunkards - they all make their way onto the stage of Hide and Seek in a novel that seems determined to portray Scotland as a bleak and unrelentingly dreary den of sin and iniquity.

The reviews and comments posted on this site reflect the opinions of individual posters and do not reflect the views of Cannonball Read. Rebus is a man perhaps more at home with this underbelly and less comfortable with the small talk of dinner parties - I loved his weary cynicism. This copy is signed by the author and features his signature "tic-tac-toe" drawing on the title page. I don’t care though as I love reading and love telling people what I think about books, so I’ll keep writing them!He has been recently promoted to Detective In Our Adult Fiction Books, Range includes Classics Novels, Comic Books, Crime, Thriller, Mystery Novels, General Fiction, Horror, Romance, Science Fiction and War. Candles surround the corpse and the crude pentagram on the wall is so fresh that the paint is still tacky. 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.
