Set In Darkness – Ian Rankin

My favourite Rebus read for some time, at number 11 in the series Set In Darkness feels like the gear change in many relationships – Derek Linford and Siobhan attempt three, ultimately doomed, dates, Siobhan recognises Rebus as friend and mentor, and Big Ger is, to Rebus’s surprise and suspicion, released from Barlinne prison, which results in a revival of the love-hate relationship between Edinburgh’s main gangster and his most well matched, most likely nemesis, DI Rebus.

And a cracking set of crimes too, all revolving around Scottish devolution. Set In Darkness – Ian Rankin
