... Like many other fans of the highly successful Inspector Rebus series, I had my doubts when Rankin risked creating a new set of characters in The Complaints (the first Inspector Fox book - reviewed earlier) but my fears proved unfounded, and this new story builds on that success.

AdvantagesAnother excellent thriller in this latest series by the author of Rebus

DisadvantagesA slightly implausible plot?
