Journal Entry 1 by Starry-Starry from Llandrindod Wells, Wales United Kingdom on Friday, August 18, 2006
An Inspector Rebus novel.

From the back of the book:
"Struggling through another Edinburgh winter Rebus finds himself sucked into a web of intrigue that throws up more questions than answers. Was the Lord Provost's daughter kidnapped or just another runaway? Why is a city councillor shredding documents that should have been waste paper years ago? And why on earth is Rebus invited to a clay pigeon shoot at the home of the Scottish Office's Permant Secretary? Sucked into the machine that is modern Scotland, Rebus confronts the fact that some of this enemies may be beyond justice."

Wow! This arrived here FAST!!!

I received this from Starry-Starry today as part of a trade. Thank so much for sending it along! :)
This is book #7 in the Inspector Rebus series. I think I have most of them up to 7 right now, so I'm going to start on #1 soon and I will journal this book when I'm finished.

Thanks again!

Journal Entry 3 by HoserLauren at Mississauga, Ontario Canada on Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Inspector Rebus isn't too badly injured during a car chase and is well enough to get out of the car and watch the two suspects in the car lean backwards so their car flips over a bridge and on to a boat below. Rebus knows he saw them do that on purpose and can't imagine what two kidnapping suspects would want to do that for. Shortly after this incident, an ex-con walks in to a government official's office and shoots himself with a shotgun. The two cases seem open and close but there are loose ends nagging at Rebus and he doesn't know when to let go. With his boss telling him to give it up, Rebus is eventually put on mandatory vacation and he decides to continue investigating on his own time. There are threads that connect these two events and implications go fairly high up the chain of command.

The last Rebus book I read I didn't like much because he was too focused on his romance and there were too many acronyms being used that I couldn't follow along with. This book was the opposite. Rebus focused on the case, although there was still some interaction with his daughter and talk of his possibly alcohol problem. The mystery itself was intriguing. There was almost nothing for Rebus to go on, yet he still found those key pieces of evidence and figured out what was going on. A pretty impressive feat. This book was much better than its predecessor.
