Ian Rankin’s Rebus is back in his 20th novel, and this time the old man is retired. No pipe and slippers for our hero though, and although takings are up in the Oxford Bar these days he jumps at the chance of getting involved when an old enemy is the target of a shooting attempt. Yes, Rebus is working in a civilian role but he doesn’t let that little fact get in the way of his trademark investigating skills. With DI Siobhan Clarke and DI Malcolm Fox in the mix too this is a cracker of a read by an author at the very top of his game. Add it to your TBR list at once! Read the review here.
