"Detective Inspector John Rebus understands that murder is usually very simple. Passion and greed are the most common motives, but when the bodies begin to pile up - two suicides, one murder, and the mysterious death of an inmate in one of Scotland's largest prisons - Rebus realizes that there's nothing simple about his latest case." "What Rebus knows is that it all began with a petty embezzlement scheme. What he discovers is that beneath the killings a conspiracy is hidden, one that runs all the way to the top of the political ladder. And the cost of unraveling this complex web could be terrifyingly high. Everything he holds dear - his job, his life, even his young daughter - is at stake."--BOOK JACKET.

This book had a lot of action, it shows how police see their jobs and do their work. Why I enjoy it, being in Scotland, shows how much we are alike and not alike (yet) in class and drug culture in the present and past. We need to appreciation the men and women who struggle with the public, laws, and job stress in law enforcement.

Shockingly bad story. No real tension or action. All about white color crime with a mildly dark side. I hope Rankin's later books are better. I'm not sure they could be worse. The PBS series is MUCH better.
