'These murky tales exploring the deep recesses of the criminal psyche are well worth a read.' * DAILY EXPRESS * "A dangerous book to have on your bedside table - you just want to keep reading on and on into the wee small hours of the night - and a dangerous book to lend: make sure you get it back." * CORNFLOWER BOOKS * In this bumper volume he [Rankin] has collected all his Rebus short stories and the results are an undisputed delight... We witness Rebus in his early days as well as the later burdened-by-life incarnation and these vignettes with both new adventures and insights into existing cases with a new perspective, broaden our appreciation of the iconic Edinburgh cop. -- Maxim Jakubowski * LOVE READING * An essential volume for Rebus fans. * CRIME FICTION LOVER * "They are neat, pleasing, inventive... well made, a pleasure to read, one after the other, the work of a practiced and professional craftsman." * SCOTSMAN * "Rebus is genuinely fun to read no matter how dark his cases become... a deeply satisfying read and evokes the spirit of Edinburgh and Scotland in all its glory." * INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY * "An enjoyable collection, frequently displaying the playfulness that is characteristic of the author" * INDEPENDENT * "Excellently crafted short stories." * TIMES *
