Review by Library Journal (2003-01-15)

In his latest Inspector Rebus outing, Rankin (The Falls) demonstrates once again his mastery of intricate plotting and complex characterizations. This time, the heart of moral darkness that he explores lies not in the city of Edinburgh but in the Scottish police department itself. After throwing a cup of coffee at his superior, the maverick Rebus is sent to a remedial course at the police college with several other trouble-making cops: "Tulliallan was their last-chance saloon.

They were here to be resurrected". But Rebus has a secret mission: to determine whether several of his classmates, long suspected of being corrupt, stole drug money and committed other crimes. Unfortunately for Rebus, as part of their course work he and his fellow officers are assigned an old, unsolved murder that may have involved illegal actions by Rebus. At the same time, his prong, Detective Sergeant Siobhan Clarke, is investigating the killing of an art dealer that may or may not be connected to Rebus's assignment. Rankin skillfully juggles all the plot lines, tying them together in a logical and satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended for most mystery and crime fiction collections.

Review by Library Journal (2003-05-15)

Detective inspector John Rebus of the Edinburgh CID is pulled from regular police work to infiltrate a group of possibly corrupt police officers. John is not above suspicion himself, and he worries that the others may learn about his secret past. Meanwhile, his colleague Siobhan Clarke is left to solve the murder of an art dealer. The two parallel and slowly entwining stories are adeptly read by Joe Dunlop, who meets the challenge of numerous characters, complex plotting, and gray moodiness.

He incorporates all these elements in an understated reading that clearly defines each person and the (usually) terrible circumstances in which they find themselves. This dark tale of murder, theft, and greed offers little joy. This ambitious audio production is generally successful and will be enjoyed by listeners of the Rebus series, of which this is the 14th installment.

Review by Library Journal (2002-10-15)

A top author in the UK, where he sells more than Stephen King or John Grisham, Rankin cooks up more trouble for Inspector John Rebus. This time, the disgraced Rebus is trying to solve a murder he unwittingly may have caused when he realizes that a protege's case may be related. The publisher hopes to break out Rankin with this title, so expect big publicity.
