Review #40: Saints of the Shadow Bible
Rebus is back on the force—but he’s now junior to Siobhan Clarke! Well, if that piece of news makes you sit up in disbelief, you must be a fellow-Rebus-fan. Which also means you need to pick up the nineteenth Rebus novel, The Saints of the Shadow Bible, right away.
This one is a slightly mellow story, one in which old skeletons threaten to leap out of long-forgotten closets. A case of police corruption dating back to Rebus’s newbie days on the force intertwines with a suspicous car crash. Malcolm Fox from the Complaints department has a major role to play in this novel, with interesting consequences. Eight out of ten!
