The Hanging Garden – Ian Rankin

The last novel of the holiday, and another ‘healthy’ dose of Inspector Rebus.

John Rebus on the other hand is trying to keep himself off the booze and saturated fats, but then a hit-and-run and botched police sting bring him face to face with the deaths of two people who mean the most to him….
