Ian Rankin is a master writer. This one is good, but not great. Shallow side characters and the main charc. all running around in circles. This one is kinda like 'Broadchurch' where, literally each individual has a reason for the killings... "When Davie left, his legs were weaker then ever..."

But still worth a read, kinda of treat it as a DIY detective book, "Can you figure out how it all plays out in the end? I was 80%, but as usual a 'complete left turn' at the end..

You either love Rankin or you don't. This is not one of his best but he does try to bring the lives of other key characters more to the foreground, which I appreciated.

None of the reviews below are about The Fragment by T. Davis Bunn. It's unfortunate that they are shown under that title.

I struggled to care who the bad people were and the good guys are boring - nothing happens for three quarters of the book and the story is predictable from beginning to end. What a tedious read.

Rebus has finally retired, but is drawn back in when killings begin to happen and his old enemy Cafferty appears to be on the hit list. Ghosts from the past abound in this latest offering by Ian Rankin.

Irreverant. Honorable. Unapologetic. Loyal. Cynical. Persistant. That’s John Rebus. Even though he’s retired from the Edinburgh police force, John is still critical to a murder investigation.

I liked this Rebus/Clarke/Fox police story. It is a great series and this book shows there is still a lot of life left in it. Love the Edinburgh setting and descriptions.

A great novel by Rankin with his hero Rebus, now retired but re-hired as a consultant and working with Siobhan Clarke, Malcolm Fox, and even Big Ger Cafferty.
It is a well written novel with a good organized plot, a page - turner and hard to put down. I didn't want it to end. Read it.

Rankin and Rebus never fail to entertain, and this one is no exception. Perhaps a few too many ancillary characters for my liking, but this is an excellent read. Rebus' character seems to be mellowing a bit, and the storyline involving past friends and foes adds some spice, and expands the future possibilities.

Even though you might ferret it out the murderer of one of the victims, Rankin still creates a great mystery, filled with interesting characters.
