It begins with a phone call. Gordon Reeve's brother has been found dead in his car in San Diego - the car was locked from the inside, a gun in his hand. In the US to identify the body Gordon comes to realise that his brother has in fact been murdered. What's more, it is soon obvious that his own life is in danger. Once back in Scotland he finds out that there have been more visitors than usual to his house and his home has been bugged by professionals. But Reeve is a professional too. Ex SAS, he was half of a two man unit with someone he came to fear, then to hate. It looks like his Nemesis is back. The horror has just begun . . .

Saab! Yet another Saab! :D
Well this certainly had a lot more blood, guts and bullets than any Rebus book, and I'm quite thankful for Rankin getting his gore fix through these Harvey books. Reeve was an interesting character, but to be honest, the straight-forward "kill or be killed"-style novel is a bit of a bore to me. It was interesting to read a novel from the 90s, as the world has changed dramatically since: no one's using a pay phone, airport security's from another world these days, mobile phones are no longer rented and so on. Wonder how Rankin - sorry, Harvey - would write the story today...

Thank you! Doesn't sound like Rebus, but it will be interesting to read this too!
