Description


In Edinburgh you're never far from a peaceful spot, or from a hellish one either. Now, in the heart of summer, in the midst of a nationalist festival, Inspector John Rebus is on the murder case of a young man left hanging in a spot where his screams would never be heard. To find the victim's identity--and his killer--Rebus searches from Edinburgh's most violent neighborhood to Belfast, Northern Ireland--amongst petty thugs, gunrunners, and heavyweight criminals. But before Rebus can get to the truth, he's bloodied by the dream of society's madmen--and staring into the glint of a killer's eyes.

Once again, Ian Rankin has demonstrated his incredible crime writing skills in Mortal Causes.

Praise For…


“John Rebus, an outstanding creation... very ambitious and very confident with acute observation of the not-so-bonny side of Scotland.” —Mike Ripley, Sunday Telegraph

“Rankin's ability to create a credible character, delivering convincing dialogue to complement sinister and hard-hitting plots set against vividly detailed atmosphere, is simply awesome.” —Time Out
