Rebus leaves Edinburgh to help on a case in London. A great, quick read with some turns along the way. Really starting to enjoy this series.

Thanks so much, perfect-circle--this arrived safe and sound today. Envelope had torn but the UK postal system had repackaged it in plastic, so the books were in perfect condition. Thank you for this generous RABCK! I didn't expect you to send them both--so kind of you! 


Journal Entry 5 by lils74 at Kathmandu, Bagmati Nepal on Thursday, August 04, 2011

5 out of 10

Finished reading this yesterday. This is the 3rd in the Inspector Rebus series, and also the third one I've read, though I've not read them in order. I have to say, I was a bit disappointed in this one. Maybe because it's earlier in the series, and therefore the author hasn't developed quite as much as he is later. Not that it's not well written--because it is--but I really disliked the cliches of the policeman going his own way, disobeying his superiors, ignoring protocol and just following instincts, and yet he still manages to get the bad guy, pretty much single handedly. Unless it's a cozy, I prefer police crime novels to have a little realism/teamwork. Also, from having lived in London I found all the coincidental crossover of characters just a little unrealistic in that or any big city, but maybe I'm wrong. Having said all that, I actually did find it be an enjoyable, even compulsive read; it was really only in the conclusion that I felt unsatisfied with.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Some of us are playing a game called Bookcrossing Monopoly. Our team (Team Iron) has a free release this turn, and this is one of the books I am releasing for it, while at my dental appointment this afternoon.
Tooth is an obvious connection, but there's a secondary one, too. My teeth are so sensitive and I just hate going to the dentist. When I do, I literally grip the sides of the chair and hold on, Tooth and Nail :)
Enjoy the book! Please let us know it's safe with you by making a journal entry--you can be anonymous, if you like!
