A confession: I never ever look those underlined words up unless comprehending some expression is pivotal to understand a key point of the book. I still disagree with the readers who take exception to Rebus' imbalanced erudition and Rankins' over-fondness for literary references. Gregor Jack, MP, well-liked, young, married to the fiery Elizabeth - to the outside world a very public success story.

I would love to put motherfuckers like Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Prince Andrew, Alan Dershowitz, Harvey Weinstein, Woody Allen, and Bill Cosby in a basement, tied to chairs, let the women who were victimized by these creeps have thirty minutes in the room with them, providing them with an assortment of rusty surgical equipment. It suits him and it suits Edinburgh, which comes more alive and is more recognisable than in the previous novel. He can bend rules to solve crimes or as in Hollywood films they say he can go rogue to catch the bad guy. But in a shadowy, crumbling housing development, a junkie lies dead of an overdose, his bruised body surrounded by signs of Satanic worship. A nice touch is the cynical end, the knowledge that the truly rich and powerful can hush things up and save their skins (the occasional sacrifice notwithstanding) -- and Rebus' awareness of all this.

It emerges that the dead man was a photographer who took and hid some sensitive photos in a specialist private members' club - Hyde's - where highly connected people in society watch illegal boxing. From the iconic Number One bestseller Ian Rankin, comes one of the must-read books of the year: A SONG FOR THE DARK TIMES 'Genius . Rebus just has a feel about the scene of death and decides to sniff around a bit more than would normally seem necessary in a case seemingly as cut and dried as this.

But gradually Inspector John Rebus sifted through the rubble, finding not a lot to shock him, but more than he'd expected. I’ve been trying to amend that, and my journey into Ian Rankin is an example of me trying to better myself when it comes to one of my favourite genres.

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. I would like to be able to say I have read most of the big ones, yet the reality is that I have read nowhere near as many as I would like to be able to claim.When Superintendent Watson appoints Rebus to a newly formed task force of police and prominent local businessmen funding a crack down on the drug situation in Edinburgh he keeps digging into the overdose at the squat.

He is also a past winner of the Chandler-Fulbright Award, and he received two Dagger Awards for the year's best short story and the Gold Dagger for Fiction.I have a big complaint about Ian Rankin’s early Rebus novels, and it is a complaint that continues to taint my enjoyment of the series. The central mystery is intriguing enough, though, and I liked the eat-the-rich vibe the book was giving off. I understand that there is a difference, and I apologize to anyone who may be triggered by this topic. If talking about the topic of international sex trafficking or the global big-business industry of pedophelia and child pornography bothers you, stop reading this review immediately. There's a bigger cast of characters than in Knots and Crosses, to the extent that it feels rather crowded at times.
