It is August in Edinburgh and the Festival is in full swing... subterranean streets and marks on the corpse cause Rebus to suspect the involvement of sectarian activists. The prospect of a terrorist atrocity in a city heaving with tourists is almost unthinkable. realises he is sitting atop a volcano of mayhem - and it's just about to erupt.

A bit more gruesome than Rankin's usual fare but gives us an interesting military background for Rebus and some early on the ground insight into the Irish troubles as they leaked into Scotland's crime scene. It is a shame now north american funding for this civil war kept the violence going. A good read as always.

It was okay but I didn't like it nearly as much as the previous one. Maybe it was because Holmes and Clark, Rebus's sidekicks, were basically absent in this one
