“I have to admit I was just a little disappointed. It seemed somewhat disjointed. There were some great lines there, though, some real laugh-out-loud ones. It seems to be setting the stage for a battle royale between Siobhan and Mo Cafferty at some point. In fact, I would not be surprised to see something with Rebus as a secondary character, or not in it at all … It was a good read, but the bar is so high for Rankin that anything less than superb seems a letdown.”
Which seems in line with some of the other reviews I’ve seen. I’ll still pick it up myself, of course, but as I mentioned earlier, I may just wait until the paperback — or until the library acquires a copy.
