Inspector Rebus novels
A Good Hanging
Twelve terrific stories starring Detective Inspector John Rebus. His home city of Edinburgh is not just the tartan tearooms and cobbled streets of the tourist brochures, but a modern urban conurbation with the full range of criminals and their victims - blackmailers, peeping Toms, and more than one kind of murderer. It is a city that gives birth to crimes of passion, accident and long-hidden jealousy.
'Rebus is a superbly drawn character; matched by the edgy authenticity of the Scottish locale and dialogue'
'Very ambitious and very confident with acute observation of the not-so-bonny side of Scotland'
