RETIREMENT doesn’t suit former Inspector John Rebus.
He wasn’t made for hobbies, holidays or home improvements. So when DI Siobhan Clarke asks for his help on a case, Rebus doesn’t need long to consider his options.
On the other side of Edinburgh, Big Ger Cafferty – Rebus’s long-time nemesis – has received an identical note and a bullet through his window. Now it’s up to Clarke and Rebus to connect the dots and stop a killer.
