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!
